Blandings Castle, normally the idyllic domain of Clarence, Earl of Emsworth, has been up in a tizzy all week over matters veterinary. George Cyril Wellbeloved, the pigman, had to spend 5 days in the village chokey for an incident involving a sodden ballet performed in his long woolies beneath the moon. This would not have greatly concerned the household, but the Empress of Blandings, that award winning Berkshire sow, has been refusing her feed, pining for her pal.
The Blandings contingent has been sparing no effort to arouse the prize pig's appetite. Each day, from Monday through Friday, one of the following persona have been trying various methods to gain the Empress' interest in nutrition: Clarence Lord Emsworth (of course), Angus McAllister (the gardener), Galahad Threepwood, Freddy Threepwood, and Beach (the butler). The solutions employed (in no particular order) were singing to the pig, giving her a rubdown, taking her for a trot, bringing a companion pig to visit, and giving her a pep talk.
The results were mixed. One day the Empress picked over a parsnip, on another day she browsed over some bran, one afternoon she tried a turnip, and one day she chewed a cabbage. Oh, and one day the Empress snacked on a spud, but these lean pickings were scarcely enough to maintain her impressive physique. Then, like some miracle happy ending, Wellbeloved was released, and the pig returned immediately to celebrate with a feast of impressive scale.
Clarence particularly wanted to chronicle these efforts, for a letter to the pig expert Whiffle, but being a bit of a random thinker, he lost order of the details and couldn't remember anything but the following clues. Can you help him determine who tried what to encourage the Empress to eat, on which day, and what tidbit the pig partook on that day?
