Apart from traditional ideological divides eg. East/West, North/South, capitalism/communism, pro-life/pro-choice, I have discovered yet another source of stark and violent division amongst peoples.
So tell me, if a good friend of yours called you up and said it was their birthday on Sunday and they’d decided to spend the afternoon at Sing-a-long-a Sound Of Music, would you say: i) “OMIGOD, that sounds SOOOO fantastic, I’ll come as a brown paper package tied up with string!” or ii) “Sweet Jesus, deliver me from this hell on earth”?
Humph. Well, screw the naysayers. I’m not old enough for dignity yet.
