This rainy season goes on and on, doesn’t it!
As for the mob who were protesting outside the palace gates this morning, I’m afraid my guards thought the protestors’ water-pistols were Kalyshnikovs! Hence the use of the water-cannon - how’s that for irony!
And those protestors who were swooshed into the moat have no cause for complaint either! Everyone knows it’s an important nature conservation area - those sharks are an endangered species, you know. The poor things will be glad of some extra calories on a day like this.
And anyway, the reason for the protest was just an accident. It was my new super-computer. I couldn’t wait for it to warm up and started tapping randomly on the keyboard. I must have accidentally entered ‘Empire-wide ban on umbrellas and wellingtons with immediate effect’. And I still haven’t figured out how to cancel it! I need a bit more time to get my Imperial Head around this new-fangled operating system - give me a couple of weeks.
Good riddance to you all,
Emperor Peng Win 2.0
Right, back to Killer Penguins - level 3!
