a person may have a task or another

train people have closed the shutters. they are having tea. train people have apologised for any inconvenience caused and the train was cancelled due to poor rail conditions. there won’t be another one for a while but it’ll arrive shortly.
the doing of any thing in accordance with an authorisation under the train people act shall not be treated, for any purpose, as a breach of any requirement or restriction imposed by any other enactment or rule of law. says the train man and the others nod in agreement. not much we can do, says sponge. we can wait a bit more, says breadroll and is right about that. spot on, says sponge.

a hat is a cushion is a task

a hat is a hat is a hat, said breadroll.
you have a point, said sponge, but a pillow is a pillow is a pillow.
did we not need a cushion, said breadroll.
let’s not rush things, said sponge and smiled. he had worked for a while on this punchline and was glad having managed to stage it so flawlessly.
