Jings, we didni hauf rooze up thon bear by peltin it wi stanes.

Oniegate we’re sauf noo Erchie, she’ll be awa lickin her birses at hame.

C’mon oot – nae worries, she disni ken aboot this tunnel and it’s gettin dark.

She’ll be back in her den.

By heavens, we did not half enrage that bear by pelting her with stones.

Anyway we’re safe now Archibald, she’ll be away licking her bruises at home.

Come on out – no worries, she does not know about this tunnel and it’s getting dark.

She’ll be back in her den.
