“Deep-Fried Ukulele in a Light Tempura Batter.”
A long time ago,
A young George Orwell was thought to have said
(and this was when he was younger,
before he was dead)
‘Four strings good;
Six strings better!’
and then he deep-fried a ukulele
In a light tempura batter
#1 in a series of 10 entitled, ‘Ten (10) Creative Ways To ‘Literally’ Cook Your Ukulele.’
Big Obsequious Brother (you can still call me ‘Bob!’) is watching you!
Well, you’ve definitely been up to no good today.
Your intentions may have seemed radical and ground-breaking; but, your actions were full and predictable.
Doesn’t seem fair, does it?
Being one of 7.14 billion and thinking the world revolves around you – when it obviously doesn’t!
Have to get your act together if you want to be more than a cast member to life.
What! Another thought! My, you are full of them. Good luck (sardonical, I am).
Another of our surveys showed that 2.798% of 4,013,648 people we surveyed preferred salt to sugar in their coffee / tea (some people are just weird)
Big Obsequious Brother (you can call me ‘Bob!’) is watching you!
Everything you say or do
Is known to me
And if I can manage it
I’ll know exactly what you are thinking
And use that against you when your lifeboat is sinking.
You will toe the line
Stick to the rules in my book
I repeat ‘not’
Under any circumstances
Have thoughts of your own.
Our survey has shown that 98% of 3,098,648 people preferred a life more ordinary.
