Another Lesson In Etiquette

Mr. Hamilton (a relation, it has been discovered, of one Lady Hamilton┬áto whom has been ascribed Much Scandal), Environmental Artist employed by the esteemed Company of Gaslamp Games, demonstrates the mindful consumption of health-giving beet juice at a local “cafe” suspected to be frequented by poets and their ilk.

(Please dim the lights for the Magic Lantern Show.)

1. The Gentleman drinks.

2. The Gentleman is shocked by the vulgar flavours of unboiled vegetable known to Polite Society to be fit only to peasants and certain radical Whigs.

3. The Gentleman calls upon his Upbringing, summoning the Stiff Upper Lip to embolden his Spirit.

4. The Gentleman presents a can-do cheery attitude as befits the keeping of Pleasant Company.

5. “Death is the only release I shall know.”

    Not getting anywhere with finding a real dessert mallet. (What would you use it for? Breaking through a sheen of ice?) I guess the other real artefact is the crinkle tongs?

    (Urchin swatter? Either the Imperials forgot you only eat the roe, or their classism has gotten REALLY ridiculous…I rather hope there’s a way to play a NON-classist bureaucrat, no matter what the Shan at the newspaper offices think.)
