Accidents Happen

by Simon Stratton & Ed Bowman

"Hey Gary, just phoned to say thanks for the meal yesterday... but I should tell you that when I left your house afterwards I accidentally reversed over your cat Muscles, killing him... and now he's buried in my garden - only kidding! Just messing with you. I really called to say I won the lottery and I'm dumping you and buying some better friends - only kidding! Ha ha, of course not; in fact I've really been chosen as the new 007 and want you to play the new Bond girl – have you got a wig? Don't bother shaving your legs, I like them hairy – ha ha, no, seriously, I'm phoning because... I slept with your wife! Ha ha, no, but actually I really did run over your cat yesterday and I'm sorry."
