You throw stonns at glass houses? Who knew?

A resident of Scoon....

A gentleman in South Africa was a prince in a dark-skinned tribe which had a degree of control of its own fortunes. He had been educated in the UK to degree level, and returned to govern his tribe using the best of the Western democratic systems combined with his own tribal methods.

He governed from his own kraal, and built a traditional native "palace" using tribal constructional methods which involved wood, leaves and thatch to best effect.

However, he had been very impressed in the UK by the Royal Family's use of ornate seats, and decided that he, too, required a throne. He ordered one from Harrods, and was delighted with it when it was delivered.

However, other senior members of the tribe were very jealous of him and decided that they, too, required such seating arrangements.

The prince was not impressed, and promptly had them confiscated. However, this abundance of ornate official seating cluttered his palace and he was obliged to have them consigned to the attic. Unfortunately, the weight of this furniture proved too much for the building, and it collapsed, with significant injuries to the Prince and his family.

Which only goes to show that people who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.......

Thin egg shells.
 
Listening to some female (Labour) MP on the radio this morning, moaning about Brexit. She was speaking in Corporate jargon and throwing meaningless sound bites around to prove she was on top of her brief. She used the term “known unknowns”, which always grips my shit. If whatever issue you are banging on about is known, it’s not unknown ffs! Certain individuals in Army HQ used to love the phrase too. Makes my teeth itch. Blue Sky thinking my arse! :smile:
