I think that what you put down the toilet was Harpic not Harpax :hmm:
Harpax is the Gaulish knock-off product marketed by the Vercingetorix Holding Companies. Offices in Lutetia, Roma and Londinium.
Of course, that's just what I meant. We were too poor to afford Harpic.
Is this what they mean by "lavatory humour"? :lol:

Ah, so fun dealing with children. Or those who ....

I thought of the name as Harpo Marx.

Thanks, Todd

:lol: "when you have given me the money, go hang yourself" !!! this quote was priceless, made me laugh out loud. I love the character you give Harpax here. The accent already is wonderful. He is a mix between "not the sharpest knife in the drawer" but still adamant and not to be trifled with. :thumbs: Excellent job. Oh and you managed the name of your boss quite well. I still need to practice this one, as I have to say it as well. :?

Thank you, Adrian, totally PL ok. (assuming we both didn't miss any lines. The script is really a challenge)

A great start.

and here is Simmia, who is really full of himself and his merits in roguery :lol: Hope I made him self-confident/arrogant enough. ;)

Oh and I managed to get my tongue around Polymachaeroplagides...but honestly, Heautontimoroumenos was easier (yes, I still know it by heart)

I'm starting to get hungry when I hear you describe the menu :lol: The cook is rather saucy I find (pun intended). Well done, Eva, most of these herbs I've never even heard of. Nothing missing, totally PL ok :)
