Sample Text:

Jay: Your idea of fashion might be a bit different from us birds. But it’s all done for the same effect!

Peacock: And effective it is, right? I mean, do we look good or do we look good?

Narrator: Oh dear! Nothing like blowing your own trumpet! Some might think you were just a bit too showy!

Jay: Well, they sure impressed me! I couldn’t take my eyes off them. It was really hard to drag myself away, back to my dull nest and dull family.

Teacher: Ooh! That’s not a very nice thing to say!

Jay: I know. But I was so dazzled by all that colour that I had seen, I could think of nothing else. All I wanted was to be like those peacocks.

Pupil 1: Crazy!

Pupil 2: Absurd!

Teacher: You two think so? Now let me just remind you what your little argument was about!

Pupil 1: Argument?

Pupil 2: Well, it wasn’t exactly an argument. He (pointing to Pupil 1) just didn’t like me calling him a sheep!

Jay: A sheep?

Peacock: Why on earth would he call you a sheep?

Jay: You don’t look anything like a sheep!

Peacock: Even us, with the bird brains, can see that!

Teacher: Perhaps I should explain to you, birds, about our rich language – where we compare ourselves to animals. Not always in the most flattering light!

Pupil 1: Nobody likes to be called a sheep!

Jay: Because they’re white?

Peacock: Not very colourful?

Pupil 2: No. Because they are herd animals and just do as everyone else does.

Jay: You mean, they just follow the crowd?

Pupil 2: Exactly.

Peacock: Huh! You call us bird-brains! That’s even worse!
