KAMLOOPS — The Big Day is almost upon the sleepy village of Frootloops, and the council has come together to plan the annual Christmas concert, featuring a skit by its members. Mayor Ken Kringle, newly elected to the job, takes his chair and prepares to preside.
KRINGLE: I call this meeting to order. We have a fulsome agenda to get through, unless there’s anyone here who’s contrary minded. Main topic is the annual Christmas skit. We can only increase the budget this year by 2.5 per cent. Mr. Tannenbaum, how much will that get us?
