Further details

Debbie is captured and taken to Ninny village. There's no need to worry, though, because it's a village of idiots and all they want to do is ask her a question.

Evolution, it turns out, has ground to a halt here because of the Ninnys' time honoured tradition of taking their cleverest (i.e. least stupid) resident and anointing them Chief Hoo-Hah. Once, that is, they've been fired from a cannon into the sun and received a blessing from the Sun God.

Unsurprisingly, no one has ever returned from these special trips, so, with each marginally less thick inhabitant being routinely killed off, the Ninnys have remained in a state of complete and utter stupidity.

Captor-turned-guest Debbie brings some much-needed common sense into the community and, determined to stop the Ninnys from sacrificing any more of their own, concocts an ingenious plan hinging on hubby Peter's am-dram acting skills.

Negatus, meanwhile, has been exploiting the Ninnys for years and is looking to score uncut gemstones for free.
