The Chauffeur Chaffinch

One day a chaffinch was passing by underneath Jack’s beanstalk … his car had broken down, so he had to walk. Whilst he waited for a mechanic to arrive, he switched on the radio – playing music from nine till five. Soon, the chaffinch in Jack’s beanstalk drove everyone a little bit mad. When he turned up the volume on his radio, the music that blarted out was quite bad (but it was the only compact disc that he had !). The chauffeur chaffinch switched up a gear … and within a few seconds, a song was playing from yesteryear. When the chaffinch turned the steering wheel … all the blue tits started to squeal. As the chauffeur drove around the bend, suddenly the chaffinch set off a trend. The chaffeur chaffinch didn’t slow down … as over the beanstalk, he flapped his wings and was blown.
