With all do respect to the Public Broadcasting Service and their magical world your correspondent has chosen to begin his statement with the word So. In short, So what have we learned? And the answer is Well! we've learned a whole bunch of stuff! And very little of it's for these pages. There might however be a wider issue relating to the damage being done to the English Language by Social Media and children's entertainments, or the feed stock of our Corporate world where the mindless are encouraged in exchange for their two weeks in Cancun. Orwell will be smirking in his grave, pretty damned certain Shakespeare will be wearing a kilt and trying to learn Welsh or Arabic and Qi is the word which may well come into play as your correspondent recovers his wits, his senses, and his balance.
So! I'll never again be able to define the words, cute, precious, adorable
without stumbling into the dark world of Bunny Bunny Foo Foo and his unfortunate
yet very understandable habit of bopping fellow creatures on the head despite
endless warnings from a Good Fairy whose concept of shock and awe is frankly
pathetic. Safe to say your correspondent will call his new understanding of
social media progress. So! before he does anything else, such as a list
of new definitions for cute, precious or adorable, your correspondent must
enquire after a poster of Caillou, or Pebble, so that he might be burned in
effigy while Caillou's nagging narrator is subjected to mind altering substances
before being fed to wolves. In a Village, turn about is fair play I believe.
