If you keep it, don't blame me for what happens. Pitch it on the fire again, lIke a sensible man.
I was to say Maw and Meggins disclaim all responsibility.
I wish my son was dead again!
The Whites family are tending to their guest, Sgt. Major Morrison. He mentions a mythical cursed paw that can grant wishes. After throwing it in the fire, Mr. White retrieves it, against Morrison's advice.
Mr. White makes his first wish: 200 pounds. The next day, a representative from Herbert's workplace informs the Whites that Herbert died in an accident with machinery, and compensates them with... ...200 POUNDS (dunn dunn duuunn)
Struck with grief, Mrs. White forces Mr. White to wish Herbert back to life. To one's fright and one's delight, their undead son comes knocking on the door, back from the grave.
Literary Term: Foreshadowing
HAHAHA! I'll bet I never live to see the money! HAHAHA.
While the deluded and mislead Mrs. White tries to welcome zombie-Herbert back home, Mr. White uses his 3rd and final wish from the paw.
The door is opened, and Herbert is gone; sent back to the grave from which he came.
