Sir Robert Swancutt's blimp

Still dressed as Mary Scot of Queens, Ellen walked into the main cabin of Robert Swancutt’s air ship. Blarin and Swancutt were talking, holding wine glasses in their hands. Blarin stopped in their conversation, saying: “Hello, Mary.”
Swancutt introduced himself and handed Ellen a glass. Blarin continued his story about going to South America and meeting a witch doctor.
“The tribe was very friendly to me,” he said. “They gave me a plot of ground to stay on the next time I came. It has enough space for a hut with room to spear.”

At that point, Swancutt announced dinner would be served. The three took their places at the table. Swancutt poured more wine. Ellen took a look at the faire. The spread consisted of braised goat with mushrooms and yogurt sauce and a side dish of artichokes and eggs. At first taste, Ellen said to Swancutt, “My compliments to the chef.”
Robert replied: “Thank you Mary, he is quite good. And, I’m proud of my new dish washer. He just finished his years of study at the prestigious school of dishwashing in France. He is now a master dishwasher.”
Blarin added: “Yes, he’s an interesting fellow. He’s an Eskimo. He tried taking his first classes at home via the internet, but the steam from the dishwater melted his igloo.”
