Pól is probably having a word or two with them.

+1 lingot for the 5p piece. It's been a long time.

Thanks. (Well, this one’s old enough to be a 12p piece.)

It would have been a 12d piece (the old designations "l" "s" and "d" were used for "pounds", "shillings" and "pence" until decimalisation, at which point the old shilling, which was worth 12 old pennies (12d) , became a "5p piece".

Yes, I’d used “p” rather than “d” in case Raftus wasn’t old enough to have used the pre-decimalization £sd.

If he was old enough to understand the reference to 12 rather than 5, he was old enough to understand the "d".

(No matter - it's documented now for anyone who might have been thrown by your reference to 12p).

I think I saw this episode of Mad Men, but they probably don't want to be interrupted

It's a wonder any work ever gets done. They're probably in the fridge.

In blarney, being chased by Cu Chúlainn and while Pól eats an entire cheese wheel in one bite and people throw overripe bananas at Justin Beiber and Sheogorath does a jig on top of the Statue of Liberty.

Even though I don't play the game myself, I greatly enjoy the Mad God's dialogue. "It's a family title, I pass it on to myself every thousand years..." -- here's a Lingot for the reference.
