"Have you anything for my sore throat?" an old lady asked.
"Certainly! That hat of yours suits you perfectly," replied Mr Nutter.

Mr Pumphrey, a regular, staggered in clutching his chest. "My heart..."
Mr Nutter knew what to do. "Morning! Oh you've shined those shoes a treat, Mr Pumphrey!"
Moments before Mr Pumphrey collapsed, he’d passed a large banner outside that read ‘Complimentary Medicine’.
