The left shoe of dignity

‘This Flombosteron.

Is the most.

Jumbaliant Gnongoolian.

Alive.

Please remove.

Your left shoe.’

‘No offence Barnstangle, but your idea of demonstrating honour is plain daft’

‘You are human in assuming so Henry.

But.

I’m afraid.

Gnongoolian honour.

Respects life.

Our galactic council.

Has noted.

5348 innocent human females.

Were butchered.

To demonstrate honour.

During the last Earthling.

Planetary cycle.

Unfortunately.

Our species.

Is incapable.

Of such action.

We are hermaphrodites.

Now.

Please.

Remove your shoe.’
