  What?  Button 'is fly up?!  I wouldn't dare take such liberties!  I might
give a subtle cough, maybe say "You're flying low", a slight nod-and-a-wink
with a glancing look in the general direction of downward, but I'm not going
to make a grab for it!

  They sent our emissary back - tied into his saddle, with an arrow in his
back.  Time to get circle the wagons and get the war paint on the hippos, I
guess.  Or maybe to circle the hippos and get the war paint on the wagons[*].
Either tactic should be confusing and demoralising to an opponent who has
never seen a hippo before...


[*]  - A stratagem first seen in that classic tale of life-or-death in the old
wild west, "Paint your Wagon"[**].
[**] - Although the prominence of hippos in the plotline was much reduced in
later edits, the first draft featured them in very significant roles.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
