Everyone cheers.

A vast celebration is prepared, to celebrate.

The old lady (who is already too fat) cannot resist the delicious food on offer this evening. The cats are slinking forward like little commandos on their bellies, heading for the very tempting fishy smoothie.
The smiling African hasn't decided yet which of his many special Ivorian outfits he's going to wear, but soon he arrives in a shiny turquoise bazin suit with dark green embroidery. He adores the lovely offerings on the table, and thanks the Tavern chef most sincerely, as do the cats and the old lady.
Unfortunately, the entire group doze off, having very full stomachs. There is soon the sound of loud snoring; even the cats snore.
It's the Snoring Chorus. With big smiles.

Tech note:
Here in the US, crumpet rings are also listed as egg/ pancake/ cookie rings. But the height of "proper" crumpet rings seem to be larger than the rings so labelled.

And I invite civil comments on such variations as heart and squeeze shaped "rings"

The African is wearing a long tunic over trousers, all made from a material called 'bazin'. It's emerald green and very shiny. Around the neck and down the front is intricate and colourful silvery embroidery, and a huge embroidered design decorates the front panel. On his head is a little close-fitting white, crocheted cap. He has pointy red leather shoes.
The old lady is in pale blue cotton trousers, a cream flowing top, and her trusty sandals.
She pulls out her old Hohner harmonica and plays a sailor's hornpipe.
The cats dance on their back legs with their front paws folded.
Old Speckled Hen ale flows into everyone's glass, and a Toast is given:-
"To all at the Tavern, God bless us every one!"

The wombless bat crashes into the Ivorian dancer, knocking him off his stilts and into the barrel of smoothies. That should take the edge off! cackles the old lady with the melodeon, who is just happy to have been missed by the furry and human projectiles...

African in full African costume was rather vague, but the dance being Ivorian gave me a cool visual... man, I really enjoyed the 60's en brousse.

And Russian Caravan was the favorite kedvesédesanyámnak, sniffs the wombless bat, doing a spinny pentagram in flight whistling engineer songs so the html will work. Avoiding train **wreck* songs so as not to twist the mojo... Reduced to Monkey and the engineer, the bat flies faster than intended, but doesn't hit anything because, well, it's a *bat*.

Lessee if it works.

A small gaily-decorated launch is seen tying up at the quay.
Out step an African man in full African costume, a rather plump old lady carrying an enormous Victoria sponge cake, and several Siamese cats wearing jolly little ruffs and with bright ribbons on their tails.
They enter the tavern smiling, and the party begins.

The cats perform the Siamese Moggie Polka.
The African performs an Ivorian dance.
And the old lady plays her melodeon.

Crumpets, kilos of butter and all the other good things are served, while the cats get fatter and fatter from gorging on the delicious creamed tuna.
The old lady dances in turn with the wombats, Donuel, Beardedbruce, the wombless bat, the Squid and all the other customers in the tavern.

The noise is tremendous and there are big smiles all round...

The egg would be a nice addition beardedbruce. And make the crumpets very rich. I would also use fresh yeast, and add a little sugar to get it fermenting nicely.

When I make scones I add an egg to the mixture once I've rubbed the fat into the flour. It makes them much tastier.

The old lady and her African husband have finished up all the drone-obtained stolen crumpets. They are contemplating a night-time raid on the Tavern, as they've heard a new batch (from a delicious recipe) is in the making.
They're preparing their disguise. Should it be Batman and Robin? Or Yogi Bear and BooBoo? Mr and Mrs Blobby? Perhaps Popeye and Olive Oyl?...the discussion continues.

The drone is returning, with two Siamese cats clinging to its grabbers.
It gently deposits the cats beside the jelly pit, then carefully hoists Donuel out. The cats tenderly lick Donuel all over, until he has no more jelly on his face or clothes.
Giving him a cheerful Siamese 'miaow!' they grasp the drone's extensions in their teeth and head off out to sea towards the cruise ship, where the old lady and the cheerful African man await them.
