Paul's Sad Tale


‘Do They Owe Us A Living?’ – Crass

Good evening, my friends.  It’s a-raining outside and the weather is far chillier than it has been so far this glorious summer.  It’s been so hot that I’m actually glad it’s cooler, to tell you the truth.


‘Ahead (live)’ – Wire

Paul rang us to find out when Jack’s going up to stay with him.  He told us a sad tale about his girlfriend’s neighbour…

She went to Spain on holiday and fell in love with a waiter.  They slept with each other, etc, and when it was time for her to fly home, he gave her a present which he told her she must not open until she had returned to England.  When she got back, she opened the box and it had a dead rat in it with a note saying: ‘Welcome to the rat race – now you too are HIV positive’.  She had herself checked out at the doctor’s and sure enough she is.  It’s so sick!
