Standard Fallaby has a DC3 single-berth caravanette with a glass-roof. In winter he hides it among the hundreds of other caravans on sites in the west of England, ostensibly that it might escape the scrutiny of his sister Tasida Fallaby whose attentions, according to Standard, are not ornithological and exceed those of an orthodox brother and sister relationship. The VUE Directory Commission have, as yet, not been able to locate Standard Fallaby or his caravan.
The VUE has contracted Standard's intestine and paralysed his legs. He is obliged to cling to a hanging-brace when asked to stand up. He speaks Curdine.
Bwythan Fallbutus: "Curdine is a cursive language that deliberately fosters ambiguities and encourages punning. Tulse Luper has said that, in the larynx of the right man, Curdine would be a superlative language, an antidote to all the world's feathers."
Since the VUE, Standard Fallaby has developed a passionate interest in the Corvidae. Every rook nesting-season he parks his caravan beneath a rookery somewhere in the west of England within sight of the Atlantic. He has laid a claim before the World Society for the Preservation of Birds, to have discovered a rook sub-species, Corvus frugilegus atlanticus, whose diet is largely shellfish and whose call is imitative of immature seagulls. THE WSPB has not recognised his claim.
