  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Rome, Italy, we see crowds of people at the zoo. People sit at outdoor cafe tables. Various shots of geese and swans. Monkeys in a cage sit at a table with napkins around their necks and drink milk from bottles. A large crowd watches.

    We then see performing lobsters having their backs scratched to hypnotise them and then standing on their heads - yes, really. One is pushed over and starts to come round, flapping his claws. How strange. (Location of events unspecified - Weirdsville?)
