Hello again iiwiiers
Well, it's election day in Zimbabwe. Who will win? And who will be left eating their words (and their posters)? I can't possibly guess the result, can you? The BBC says "On the eve of the election, the president said the being a puppet of the former colonial power, Britain." Even if he was that inarticulate, BBC, which I doubt, there's no need for you to do it too! You're paraphrasing, not quoting directly! Within days of the news that restrictions on the use of mobile phones on aeroplanes are starting to start to be lifted comes the news that restrictions on owning them are to be lifted in Cuba. Oh no! There's a shit gag coming over the horizon! Do it yourself, I'll give you the bits. Hi I'm on the plane. It's going to Havana. It's being hijacked by a seventies hijacker. Probably by Gene Hunt. He's so funny, he called the pilot a big jessie. Fancy another? Soon there'll be no place to hide from mobile phone coverage. They'll have mobile phone coverage in space. Hi, I'm on the plane. It's going to space. E.T. Phone home. It's been hijacked by an eighties hijacker. It could have been Gene Hunt again, but he's not in space, so it's E.T. He's so funny, he called the pilot Elliot. I know the second one isn't as promising, even within its very low ambitions, but you should be able to make at least one of the sort of thing you like out of them. Unless you don't like that sort of thing at all, in which case you'll have already been enjoying the sneery tone. If you don't like that either perhaps you can smugly bask in the knowledge that I could have made very good jokes even out of that unpromising material if I wasn't so averse to actually putting a bit of work in. Or if I was more talented. Neither would be true, of course, but you can believe them if it would please you.
That's all from me for now. Busy tomorrow, so you might not get much, but I've got some in the bag, as it were, so maybe you'll be okay. There's only one way to find out...
See you around
