Máquina do tempo

Bowl Licker (Daze of Our Lives, 17.12.1999), Martin Archer + Neil McKernan

"Clarissa was an exceptionally refined and genteel woman in all respects save the onset of supper, when her manner would become quite wanton and distinctly earthy.
Such was the ferocity of her attacks on the nightly feast, which bordered on the lascivious, that her family banished her to the servants kitchen where all would flee, save for Roland the chauffeur who watched her performances with keen interest, attending to her dress afterwards with a damp and furtive sponge."

Last Aid (Daze of Our Lives, 30.11.1999), Martin Archer

"Demonstrated here; the Victorian technique for reviving heart attack victims. Phibes, on the left, gently massages the ears, while Pilchard, on the right, claps his hands as frantically as decorum allows.
Bartlett, center, dies in confused agony much like all the other recipients of this treatment."

Head Grip (Daze of Our Lives, 20.10.1999), Martin Archer + Neil McKernan

"By applying light yet sustained pressure to the forehead, Roy managed to completely waste Cynthia's time."
