Treble Trouble

“Hello. My time horse appears to be broken. Can you take a look?”

“Certainly guv. What’s the problem?”

“Well, I’m a fan of megalomaniac conquerors, but when I set it to Napoleon’s Marengo, I end up at Chartres during the Hundred Years’ War. If I set it to Charlemagne’s Tencendur, I end up in the Bronze Age and when I set it to Alexander’s Bucephalus, I end up all the way back in the Stone Age.”

“Let’s ‘ave a look. Oh! ‘ere’s the problem, guv. You’ve got it set to ‘orse years. You need to set it to ‘uman years.”
