The Dog Catcher

by Alexei Sayle

Once he knew what he wanted then Rupert generally got what he wanted. As a child he would simply go on and on at his parents or his Scout troop leader or his sister till they did what he wished them to do, moved the family to a lighthouse, made him troop leader or jerked him off. He even gave this process of going on and on a pet name: after trying out 'Persuagement', 'Coercetation' and 'Argueforcement' he finally settled on 'Forcesuasion'.
