The Prayerbabies

Many layers of the Onion

At a multi-generational bbq, controversy arises when an unrelated child is admonished by the matriarch for pointing, laughing & imitating her breaking wind, emitting a sound akin to a hybrid of a duck’s quack & hitting a ripe, wet melon with an open hand. The issues raised & unforeseeable consequences throw modern parenting, corporal punishment, the hound’s-tooth fabric of our society & flatulence into, & latterly with, sharp relief.

“The recession is perhaps not as bad as WHAT we expected”; oo, love that totally superfluous WHAT which is used with such abandon – DO hope we can hang on to it as the lingo continues to evolve… & has anyone else noticed the ‘sh’ {or even ‘sch’} which has crept into virtually any word with an ‘s’? – including the re-naming of our great nation, ‘Auschtralia’ – I can’t pick a hard-n-fast rule for it’s usage; any suggestions? Whilst we’re in the shade of the pedantree – do you really think omega-3 fatty acids like being called ‘fatty’? …bit of ‘do as what you’d be done by’ wouldn’t go aschtray…

Rumour is, you’re wearing purple elastic-less “Mr. Forgetful” underpants – I’ve got to tell the Press SOMEthing, the jackals! “Improvised Helmet for Home Safety Week” covered last months saucepan-stuck-on-your-head debacle, but this calls for drastic measures – commando will save us – be prepared to drop ’em, comprehensive, for the paparazzi when I give the nod.
