Some people were angry. Very, very angry. The very last commenter, for example. She gets straight in there.
GorgeousRedHead The trouble with this nonsense is that none of it involves a genuine risk.
How about standing for election against UKIP? How about becoming a 100% raw food vegan and being an advocate?Two of these I see as great things to do. I'd be proud to do them myself and tip my hat to any who does. But these are serious things. My present was for fun.
How about joining a spiritualist church and sitting in a mediumship circle to learn to talk to the dead?Slightly unexpected turn, but wouldn't say no.
How about campaigning for the Kurds? Tie yourself to Downing Street, camp out at Parliament Square against any and all military action against everyone everywhere.Again, I respect people who put themselves forward and protest - possibly in a more focused way, though.
Actually do something that will make your wife think about divorcing you ...Why would I do that? I don't want to.
... and off the top of my head, how about taking a vow of silence for six months? Move to the Himalayas? Walk naked from Lands End to John O'Groats?Hmm, tricky from a work point of view. And we seem to have lost the helping-other-people thread.
Campaign for an innocent in prison, ...Yep, great. But then comes the sudden wave of anger from nowhere. Snarled out like Kathy Bates.
Followed by the full-apoplexy.... or how about just going away because your life is so complacent you can't even see it?
Visit a Crop Circle? [ ... #$@&%*! ... unable to speak now with fury; tomato face; flailing fists punching the air ] ... Create one!!!!!!!!!Surreal and brilliant. Now some deep breaths to calm down, and let's have the punchline in a sinister whisper:
Oh, and get arrested. Happy Birthday.Birthday wishes were a nice thou ... hang on - I hope they were genuine. I'll be offended if they weren't.
This is the fury of someone who was browsing the Guardian Lifestyle section. Was she lost? In any case, there were enough clues in the title of the article to show it wasn't the latest report on all military action against everyone everywhere. If I do become a 100% raw food vegan, I'm going to spend all my time in a butcher's shop, screaming at the sausages.
