"where are your chimneys?"

"what chimneys?"

"your chimneys"

"what about them?"

"well, where are they?"

"there aren't any."

"what d'you mean there aren't any? you gotta have chimneys"

"but there isn't a fire."

"what are you talking about fire for? it's chimneys we need!"

"but chimneys are for fires- why would you have a chimney without a fire?"

"oh, come on! you've got to have a chimney"

"hmm, i'm not so sure..."

"go on! and you better not have a fire with that chimney, cos there's washing on the line next door."
