Storyboard Text

  • One day in a village called Sans Souci, there was a village washer named Ma Lambee.
  • hi my name is Ma Lambee and i am a village washer
  • Ma Lambee can you wash this for me please
  • Ma Lambee can you wash this overall for me please
  • as you all know because of war shirts will now be 18 cents and skirts will be a shilling
  • Because of the war, she downgraded the quality of her work, which caused tears, loose buttons and dirt and perspiration to remain.
  • i swear it was like that when i got it
  • I promise to do better
  • we will wash it for ourselves
  • look what you did to my clothes
  • we want a new washer!!!
  • The villagers' complaints were heard all the way in Donkey City and their village washer moved to Sans Souci, with the hope of taking the business from Ma Lambee. 
  • If she feel she could come and take my business, she lie!
  • Yay! A new village washer!
  • I hope she's not another Ma Lambee
  • Yipee! No more ripped up clothes.
  • Hi, I'm Ma Procop and I would like to be your new village washer.
  • Since she was the only village washer everyone depended on her to get their clothes cleaned and she also good at it.
  • Ma Lambee lost all her customers, so she started to tell lies and spread nasty rumors about Ma Procop because she was afraid to lose her business.
  • I have a new washing machine, that would make old clothes, new.
  • Ha! Ha! Ha! We don't have current!
  • She also decided to raise her prices and despite their complaints, she still had the audacity to tell them that if they don't like it, they can do it themselves. She lost some of her customers and some had no choice, which made Ma Lambee smile. 
  • Ma Lambee tactics worked so much that some of the villagers decided to confront Ma Procop to find out the truth
  • Ma Procop, we hear that is you who working obeah and we've come to search  your house
  • Look what we found in your home!
  • What nonsense you talking? I don't work obeah
  • Ma Procop offered pre-war prices, experience and better quality washing, which made Ma Lambee not so fond of her. So she decided that she needed some new tactics.
  • The ladies then headed to Ma Lambee's to see if Ma Procop was telling the truth
  • Obeah Woman
  • LIAR!!!!!!!!
  • Even though Ma Procop actions, proved she wasn't mean or evil, the people started to believe Ma Lambee and soon they began to imagine things which they thought were evil spirits. Ma Lambee saw her advantage so she studied black magic and collected evil paraphernalia and planted it in Ma Procop's home to frame her, hoping the villagers would find it.
  • Hmph! I don't know how allyuh could let her live here nah!
  • At night, she turns into a blood-sucking animal.
  • Ma Procop is evil and nasty and she uses children to wuk obeah.
  • I wonder if Ma Lambee is telling the truth!
  • Wash-up washer!
  • Much to their demise they found bones and bottles and all the other things Ma Lambee planted. Ma Procop said blatantly that those things did not belong to her and that she was sure it belonged to Ma Lambee becuase she is spiteful and she wants her to leave. One of the ladies put the mirror in Ma Procop face to see if she was the obeah woman.
  • Ma Lambee must be telling a lie! Ma Procop is not guilty!
  • Let's go over by Ma Lambee and give she the test with the mirror and cross.
  • That isn't mine!
  • When they arrived, Ma Lambee was suprised to see Ma Procop and the ladies. Ma Procop held the mirror in front of Ma Lambee's face and whispered fiercely to her. Ma Lambee was so terrified that she ran into her hut. The next day Ma Lambee was forced to move to Donkey City with all her belongings, never to be seen in Sans Souci again.
  • Nothing more to worry about. You'll never have obeah once I stay here.
  • Ma Lambee, you fooling people and saying that is I working obeah , when it was you
  • Look we have a mirror and cross here! Come out let we test you!
  • What you mean by keeping so much noise in my yard?
