Here is the 53 word version entered into the 53 word competition in December 2012..

Master it’s hot. Like an ice-cream cone?  Is it natural?  I’ll check … yes.  Is it natural?  I’ll meditate … yes.  Then I cannot have one.  Have a cone but I'm not sure it’s natural.  Is it natural?  Yes Master.  Then give me an ice-cream cone, please!  But I'm not sure it’s natural.
