I have invited you here today to demonstrate a device of immense destructive power, yet which will fit between a dog’s ears. Fitzgibbons, if you would remove the shroud from the device… thank you. I present to you, sirs — the Parlour Cannon.
What, you already have one? By all that’s tremendous, Mr. Caville, if you leave before the demonstration, I shall be forced to turn its deadly charge on you. Be seated, sir, and behold its power.
