Fortunately, Delirious was Immortal


Harold’s hyaena laugh was only occasionally a problem for his business. When Shonagh Matthews purchased an 1896 edition of Music Hall Heroes she read several excerpts and joined in with his expression of amusement but when Edmund Wentwhistle purchased “A Treatise on the Eradication of Piles” Harold’s chuckles were less appropriate.

Harold was less amused by his subsequent black eye, although Jasfoup found it hilarious. He became more and more indignant, his anger building to almost epic proportions until it found an outlet.

Delirious the imp had Harold’s laugh down pat, right to the irritating hiccough after a long peal.

Oh dear - and what outlet would that be?

I've heard laughs like that - unfortunately.

Poor Delirious, but as you say in the title... ;)

“A Treatise on the Eradication of Piles” Super book, but I agree, not the sort to be having a chuckle over.

Quite so!
and Indeed not!

Poor Delirious. He should have run faster! I had to laugh a bit like that when I played Gertie in Oklahoma.
