Ramblings and Ruminations

Dear friends,

I generally despise Labatt and Molson advertisements, but a recent one by the former struck me as rather poignant. For those of you who have not seen it, I will endeavour to describe it to you, succinctly and without all the scantily-clad female models running across the screen that one has come to expect from all good North American beer commercials (apologies to the purveyors of smut that I know expect more from this blog):

France has five weeks paid holiday.
Sweden has six weeks paid holiday.
Canada has two weeks paid holiday.

I find this to be an outrageous state of affairs and indicative of a society that derides free time, expecting its citizenry to seek personal satisfaction in an institution that most only involve themselves in to provide food and shelter. Even the UK, a country viewed by many as a post-industrial hell-hole (not by me, needless to say) has four weeks paid holiday and plans to increase it to five! Two weeks is an insult and I demand satisfaction. I suggest you all do the same.

Hey, are you Sting from The Police?

Can I still smoke pot?

Yes I am Sting formerly of The Police and yes, you can still smoke pot. If I have my way, and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I do, you'll be able to smoke pot for at least four weeks per annum without the horrible spectre of work looming the next day. I trust this pleases you. Thanks for your interesting questions.

The song Roxan is pretty good. And so is SOS. My ex-wife always like that one.

Did she often send one out did she? I prefer my solo work personally, especially "Ten Summoners Tales" where I used my well-read cerebrum to adapt Chaucer to musak. Marvellous.

I love that song. Yore a genius Sting!

Sting: you are very vain. I'm going to cum and beat you up if you don't shut up.

I believe Gene that the song you are referring to is "You're so vain". I did not write this song or indeed perform it; I believe it was Carly Simon who inflicted it upon our ears.
