Your two sons, 11-year old Greg and 12-year old Robert, have recently become fascinated by British literature. Of course, since they're reading a mix of Doyle, Christi, and various schoolboy stories, you're not sure how accurate their views might be. Nevertheless, they've asked that they now be called Giles and Rupert. They also bought some new clothes from their own allowa... pocket money.

For the past several days, they've been getting together with a few friends in an attempt to decipher the rules of Cricket. For the past several days, they've also been coming home late, and/or not having time to get their chores and homework done as they're supposed to do.
Today, you've had enough, and you ask them to remove their school clothes and report to your study for a taste of the paddle you keep there. Rob... Rupert informs you that "Englishmen do not use a paddle, so you'll be unable to chastise (them)."
Have you been put in your place yet, or do you care to make a rejoinder?
"In the end, it's just a story. But if you ask me, it's all true."
