Funny: Histeria!
  • Chit Chatterson plays a boat salesman to Ivar the Boneless, a viking who sounds like John Cleese, who is planning to invade England and has come to purchase a ship with a savage-looking figurehead. Chit shows him boats with figureheads of a kitten, a baby duck, a puppy, and a butterfly, claiming them to be a lion, a dragon, a wolf, and a hawk, respectively, and tries without success to convince his customer that these figureheads are anything but what they actually are.
    Ivar: There's nothing scary here at all, is there? It's like all your ship's figureheads are being designed by a three-year-old!
