It had been many moons since Pongo Twistleton and Barmy Fotheringay-Phipps delighted their avid fans with their bangup cross-talk act; for the act had broken up over artistic differences, and they had parted ways. But as the saying goes, "Time heals all wounds" and , they had been persuaded to reunite for a special reprise performance at the Drones Club Smoker.
Taking inventory, they found that the lines of the cross-talk repartee were engraved on their memories. What was missing was the wardrobe, for there had been a spring cleaning and a collection for the jumble sale. Between the two of them, they needed to procure six items that day, and each chap bought three of them: a set of green whiskers, a checkered coat, an umbrella suitable for conking on the bean, a stovepipe hat, an eyepatch, and a pair of wellington boots.
Their shopping expeditions ranged far and wide across London, with one of them going to each of these shops: the Secondhand Shop, the Junque Shoppe, the Rummage Sale, the Flea Market, the Curiousity Shop, and the Pink Elephant. Transportation to each shop was accomplished by different means: by Bus, by Underground, by Taxi, by Hitching a ride in a Car, by Hitching a ride in a motorcycle Sidecar and by Foot.
By day's end, they were quite exhausted, but they had the proper costuming to stage a splendid cross-talk act, which was received to rave reviews by the Drones. After the show, the Drones tried to sort out who had bought what, where, and how he had gotten there, from the hints dropped by the fatigued comics.
Can you sort out the shopping venues, the transportation, the items, and what order Pongo and Barmy bought them in?
