-What’s up, boss? The missus playing away again.

-Tourist season again.

-I’ll have make small talk with Americans who think they’ve got Celtic roots.

-Think of the TripAdvisor reviews.

-And when the hand towels get stuck in the dispenser again, who’d’you think they’ll get to yank them out?

-So you’ve got a knack.


-And the National Trust’ll take this place off your hands if it gets too much.

-Nah, Camelot’s in my blood.

-That’s the spirit, Arthur.

-Only when you said I’d come back when my country needed me most, I didn’t expect to be running the gift shop.

  1. Ha. The King of the Gift Shop.

  2. How the mighty have fallen. I hope the National Trust does take over, then I can use my membership to get in for free!

    Fantastic take on the photo prompt! 🙂

  4. “I’ll have make [to] small talk with Americans who think they’ve got Celtic roots.” … I love this sentence. 🙂

    I love from “Camelot’s in my blood.” down. Great closing.

  5. Haha! That humour hits the spot!

  6. Poor Arthur–from Sword in the Stone to Towel in the Dispenser 🙂 Very nicely done.

    Linda stole my line. From King of Camelot to King of Plastic… who’d a thunk?

    What a happy country when its most pressing needs are good employees in a gift shop. Very funny, I love it.
