OFAH: Millionaires at last!
After so many years of saying “By this time next year, we’ll be millionaires!” it finally came true.
Del and Rodney go to Sotheby’s to auction off an item they had found…
I feel I need say no more (after describing Del & rodney’s item).
I’d like to start the bidding at one hundred and fifty thousand pounds.
Thank you… Two hundred. Two fifty.
Oh dear. It was when he said a hundred and fifty
thousand. That’s when I come over bad, me. (felt unwell, fainted)
It went on, Del. Two hundred thousand, two fifty, three.
That’s when I dragged you out.
You mean it ended up at three thousand pounds?
It’s still going on?
Well come on, let’s get back up there.
Three and a quarter. Bidders in the room.
Three and a half.
Three hundred and fifty thousand quid! (pounds)
Three and three quarters. Four, thank you. The bid
stands at four million pounds.
Four and a quarter, four and a half…
So, what was the final outcome?
It was bought by an anonymous bidder. He’s
giving it to the Maritime Museum at Greenwich. So,
at least it stays in the country.
Oh, yeah, well that’s nice, isn’t it?
No, you wally! What was the final score? (result)
What exactly did it go for? (How much was it sold for?)
Six point two million.
So that’s… just over three million each.
Well, we’ve had worse days. (A popular positive sarcasm)
Do you want go first or should I?
Well, you know, why don’t we go together?
Alright then. One, two, three….
