EXODUS CHAPTER II
(In our first chapter of Exodus, Rumpole, upon seeing the parking problems at lot 26 this past Monday approached the Pharaoh Brown and said "LET MY PEOPLE PARK!" But Pharaoh Brown's heart was hardened and he did not let the people park.)
The Pharaoh's heart was hardened but he was not unmoved. He pondered his situation as the lawyers complained.
Pharaoh Brown (PB): Hmm, the people are restless. The attorneys are angry. Something must be done. Get me Sam Slom.
Court Jester: GET THE PHARAOH SAM SLOM. So it is written, so let it be done!
Sam Slom: You called Pharaoh?
PB: Yes. Put down that enormous beverage cup you are always carrying and have a seat.
The lawyers are restless. This is not good.
SS: This is not good.
PB: I have an idea!
SS: You have an idea??!!
PB: We will let some of the lawyers park. Go now, move some of the legions to the other lot. Lets see hmm...
SS: I will move some of the legions to the other lot.
PB: Say 40 of the legion.
SS: 40 of the legion.
PB: I just said that.
SS: But you said for me to say it.
PB: Who do I look like? Bud Abbott? I am the Pharaoh Brown. Stick to the right century please.
SS: Sticking to the right century.
PB: Move 40 of the legion to the other lot. But tell them this- the production of bricks shall not fall one brick. They shall show up on time and they shall praise the Pharaoh.
Court Jester: The productions of bricks shall not fall one brick! The lawyers shall be on time. So it is written, so it shall be done!
