Talking heads, after the football, pigeons and doves

A young man and woman walk side by side down the High Street. Both are talking into mobile phones. To each other? Probably not, but an interesting thought.

In the silence that reigns over the town after the football match, a child's voice in the street beyond the hedge:
How many good players do England have?
Man's voice: Lot's really.

Received idea: Doves are pigeons which have been to school. One eats pigeons but never doves.
