And not an objection by the opposition lawyers!
Fortune vomits on the DA eiderdown once more*.
We’ve all of us always knew that the collective sum of the brilliant and xyresic parts making up the formidable local DA caucus, doubling as the Eden Mensa chapter, would ultimately prevail.
I couldn’t be more petrified if a wild Rhinoceros had just come home from a hard day at the swamp and found me wearing his pyjamas, smoking his cigars and in bed with his wife.*
With which redoubtable coup de main will the DA come up next, or will there be a coup de théâtre to ultimately void the pathetic May 31 attempt at coup d’état?
The pantheons help us. Give the likes of the 11 the vote and we’ll be back to cavorting druids, death by stoning and dung for dinner…*
However, find relief in the DA’s blundering march to oblivion… There hasn’t been a war run this badly since Olaf the hairy, King of all the Vikings, ordered 80,000 battle helmets with the horns on the inside.*
* Edmund Blackadder at his best…
