WT: Wolf Tuchuk
CC: Cold Caller

WT: “Hello”
CC: “Hullo. This is John from the Abbey.”
WT: “Hello there! Are you Brother John or are you a lay member of the abbey?”
CC: “Pardon?”
WT: “And to which abbey do you belong? Bath, Tintern, Glastonbury perhaps?”
CC: “No, Abbey National”
WT: “Doesn’t exist. Was bought by some Spanish family.”

Note: “Abbey” is “Abbey National” a UK bank bought out by a Spanish bank called “Santander”.
