  • Not Funny - Serious

    I really can't help but wonder at the comprehension abilities of so many . . .

    The screen capture below reminds me of the old adage:

    Beware, they live, breathe, procreate, walk among us and vote!



    Supermarkets don't provide food, growers do. Supermarkets merely own food and hold it hostage from people who have no choice but to buy food for a profit.
    I really don't think the aforesaid moron really meant that people live in a house for profit, but given his mental abilities, one can't be sure.

    A leading role in the NZ Watermelon Party beckons.


    English language skills are fading, all around us.

    From the end of a Mainland butter container:
    NOTHING ADDED. JUST A LITTLE SALT.
    Doh?! What is it about the word "nothing" that you don't understand?
    If salt is added, then it's not correct to say that nothing is added.


    From the AirBnB web site:
    Guests can get a full refund, minus Airbnb's guest service fee.
    Doh?! What is it about the word "full" that you don't understand?
    If there's a deduction from what's been paid, then it's not correct to say that it's a full refund.

    It's not great communication.

    He's got the seed of a great idea though.

    I like the hostage parallel.
    And the give and take angle.

    It's easier to tidy up an idea, than generate one,, soo..
    off the cuff first draft..

    how about...

    "
    Landlords don't provide houses, builders do..
    Landlords take houses and hold them hostage.
    Forcing hard working folk to pay a kings ransom for a meagre place to sleep.


    "


    mmmm, needs work.
    Contrapposto not quite right.
    getting there.

    Forcing our generation to pay up.

    mmmm, . meh,

    Forcing our generation to pay the ransom.
    mmmm

        A seriously sad reality.
