"What's all that noise in the street, my Lord?"
"It's the Catalans, Baldrick. They are celebrating declaring independence from Spain."
"What's a Catalan, my Lord?"
"A Catalan is a member of the republic of Catalunya."
"I see. Excuse me, my Lord, but I've no idea where Catalunya is."
"Neither has anyone outside of Catalunya, Baldrick, but best not mention it to them."
"So what's their plan now, my Lord?"
"Their plan now is to ask Spain nicely to let them govern themselves in peace without any violence."
"I see. And is it a cunning plan, my Lord?"
"Alas no, Baldrick; it's not a cunning plan at all. Now fetch me some tea while we still have electricity."
