Ferdinand, Fanny, Faye, Fiona, Fifi, Flora and Frederick

fleas in a jar

"Oh Ferdinand."
"Ferdinand we're hungry. Ferdinand we have been sitting in this jar for days without a drop to eat or drink."
"We are sooooo very very peckish."
"Ferdi you look very handsome."
"Very full-bodied."
"A red blooded male no less."
"A real hunk."
"Excuse me but are all of you lot female fleas?"
"Ferdinand let us introduce ourselves."
"Fiona; hello Ferdinand. "
"And I'm Fifi."
"I'm Faye."
"Fanny here. "
"And I'm Flora."
"Aha thought so! I sometimes count six but you all fidget so much!"
"...And this is Frederick."
"Hi Ferd."

"Ferdinand. You're our agent we require...! And a decent place to live. 70% of the profits...! Top billing...! And...! And ...! Also.....! And in addition...! We also want... and want... want, want, WANT!"
"Sign here! "
"What you want is blood...!"
"Ferdi, you got it in one."
"Blood suckers."
"A truism!"
"Bleed me dry you will!"
"Mmm. Yummy, we wish," Fanny, Faye, Fiona, Fifi, Flora and Frederick said in unison.
