Inspired by the 1993 collapse of the Scarborough hotel Holbeck Hall into the sea, this story was originally told to entertain the young heroine Antonia in a traffic jam one Bank Holiday many years ago.
The hotel wibbled and the hotel wobbled, the guests grumbled and the waiters said 'Oops.'
The tables trembled, the chairs chewed their nails, the yellow jelly jumped,
the pink blancmange rolled over,
the butterfly buns with cream flew away, but the Battenberg cake stuck to its plate.
