Write a scene from The Royle Family in which Jim Royle invites the whole street round to watch him eat a giant black pudding
It was a typical Sunday afternoon in the Royle household. Jim was lounging on the couch, a beer in hand, while Barbara was in the kitchen preparing the Sunday roast.
“Alright love?” Jim called out to his wife.
“Yeah, just getting the potatoes on,” Barbara replied.
Suddenly, Jim had an idea. “Hey, why don’t we invite the whole street round to watch me eat this giant black pudding I bought from the butcher’s?”
Barbara rolled her eyes. “Jim, we can’t just invite the whole street round without any notice.”
“Why not? They’re our neighbors, aren’t they?” Jim said, taking a swig of his beer. “Come on, it’ll be a laugh.”
“Fine,” Barbara relented. “But you’ll have to do the inviting.”
Jim grinned and jumped off the couch. He grabbed the black pudding and headed out the door, knocking on the doors of each of their neighbors and inviting them over to watch him eat the giant black pudding.
As the afternoon wore on, the living room started to fill up with their neighbors, all eager to see Jim tackle the monstrous black pudding. Jim sat at the center of the room, the black pudding on a plate in front of him.
“Alright everyone, let’s get started!” Jim declared, picking up a fork and knife.
The whole street watched in amazement as Jim slowly but surely made his way through the giant black pudding, finishing it off to wild applause from his neighbors.
“Well done, Jim!” Barbara said, shaking her head in disbelief.
Jim grinned, wiping his mouth with a napkin. “That was a bloody good black pudding, if I do say so myself.”
