Hi Fred

Worms meaning earthworms? or some other type of small wiggly animal? or computer worms? or some other type of worms?

Price, as in money? or more generally, the consequences of these worms?

This price of worms: to use for bait when fishing? or to use for fertilizing a field? or for something else?

Did someone lie about the price of worms? Was he able to catch them in a lie because he knew the price of worms?

Were any woims purchased in the course of this scenario? Were any woims otherwise acquired?

Were the woims consumed by skateboarding poultry?

Were woims used in place of something else?

Would false advertising be a better phrase? Racketeering? Money laundering?

Were the woims consumed by skateboarding poultry? no, the skateboarding chickens were trying to cross the road

Were woims used in place of something else? NO, but...

Would false advertising be a better phrase? Racketeering? Money laundering? Hmmm...I'd say it was a "fradulent frame attempt" if that makes any sense

"youse talks foiny"
Do you think my New York accent sounds funny?

So there were worms purchased?
But their price was not what it should have been and nor was it below or above what it shoulda bin?

Is this another one of your trick puzzles?

Sorry, I had to change the scenario. Someone pointed out to me a flaw in it, so change that from "purchased" to "obtained".

I see, worms were obtained in the course of this puzzle - okay - I'll need to sleep on that one.
If you get the chance take a look at the very last comments for these two shows: "Eastenders" and "Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin" on Jump the shark ;-)
