Wrong, sir! Wrong! Under section 37-B of the contract signed by him, it states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if – and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy – ‘I, the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained’, et cetera, et cetera…‘Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum’, et cetera, et cetera…’Memo bis punitor delicatum!” It’s all there! Black and white! Clear as crystal! You stole Fizzy-Lifting drinks! You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized. So you get NOTHING! You lose! Good day, sir!
(Grandpa Joe: “You’re a crook! You’re a cheat and a swindler, that’s what you are. How can you do a thing like this?! Build up a little boy’s hopes and then smash all his dreams to pieces? You’re an inhuman monster!”)
Sir, I said, ‘Good day!’
