Lackey Henderson Bowles and Mikesell...
Perhaps they are the sort of firm (and people) who would take
themselves very seriously and try to lend an austerity to their
reputation, whatever their actual circumstances. Selling softdrink /
soda / pop / whatchamacallit might be absolutely necessary but they
don't have to like it or be good at it, which would filter down to the
way they sold their wares, perhaps. One who had business of an
official, magical and legal nature Would Not Joke about the fact that
such illustrious personages sold popcorn.
