      the old man with the beard decided to lay his hands upon this poor lonely pony, and descended upon her a bounty, a bounty so exceedingly large, that she was blessed with a zony or a pebra, and this doth maketh lots of dosh for the zony’s owner, so that he too can be bountious [sic] with the hay from the tv rights, and dost ensure the continuing success of the little darling who shall dwell in the house of hay for evermore.
