Cousin Warwick, the Scotch crocodile who came for dinner, is the guest star of this blown-up black comedy. He scorns the tempting dishes cousins Cromwell and Beowulf prepare for him; he destroys their prized possessions and insults them; he tries to eat their best friends. Does this scoundrel get his comeuppance? Only temporarily. The final humiliation belongs to Cromwell and Beowulf, who discover that Warwick has polished off alone the three bottles of Scotch broth he brought, ""which is, so they say, the best in the world.
