Snippet snatched from the jaws of working stupid hours No 1.

I have just started teaching. Any alarming irregularities in the frequency of posts, or the disturbing and moronic babble that issues forth, are purely coincidental.


Two men, or boys, standing on a bridge/overpass, looking out over a road, or a river, or a ditch. One says – mumbles or sings, maybe, to the other, or maybe they’re both talking and/or murmuring. Immediately … or possibly some time later, one man/boy slaps, shoots, kisses the other. Nobody knows why this happens (apart from the majority of people – some/all may have a pretty good idea, or not) but many of a fairly small majority, numbering in their thousands, taken from a very narrow sample, but tested hundreds of times, don’t actually care.
