Thanks Ellie. I thought the polka would be equally well known to both audiences. I put It in one and asked Mark to put it in the other.

Thank you all for your comments.

Quote: Clive Danton
Oh dear me fucking no!! Once I vow that you'll not find me here again I mean exactly that and it'll be a cold day in hell before you catch me lurking for weeks on end and knawing frantically on my knuckles before slipping in a crafty acronym or submitting a story that's about as funny as a kick in the Niagras from a size 14 steel toe capped ski boot.


To whom are you referring Clive? Arm or Scoob? (they don't take criticism well)

Private Third Class McManus (the sun was in my eyes!)

I take it then that there will be no discussion of the ignorance of prejudice based on word pronunciation, or the ignorance of "fuck off" being the five star winning argument?

I'd write a spoof, but I'm afraid you already don't like it (I fear you're prejudiced against it) and as you can see, I'm very sensitive.

No. I'm thanking you for coming to his rescue.  He was well out of his depth.  I thought he had more going for him.  I think he's fainted.  Disappointing!

As for you.  This is the second time you've used the "f" word with respect to me.  What's this precious new writer to make of that?  You care about new writers as much as he does.  

So how about a discussion of this young man's well written piece (the one you said was really really good; did you read it?) about Britain and prejudice?  Are you up to it or do you only swear at Americans unimaginatively?

Your spelling suffers when you're upset. Hope your blood pressure's OK.

I'm satisfied I've done nothing but show a keen interest in a new writers effort.

I'm not sure what you've accomplished.

You said I know nothing about you. Well I do now. Nite, nite.

Never seen anything lower on this site and that's saying something.  You lost fair and square.
Maybe tomorrow when you sober up, you'll be embarrassed.  As it is, I'm embarrassed for you.

Haven't rubbished it.  I've shown more interest in it than you have.  You should stop now.  You're frightening the children.

It's not. Why bring it up again? Not very welcoming. It must be time a guy of your age went to bed. Good Night.

I'm very interested in the story. There's no way I would feel comfortable criticizing what was written, and I haven't done that. I hope he finds it complimentary that I have found the story so thought provoking. I really don't care whether its satire or not. I just thought there were interesting things that could be discussed about what he wrote. If I was him, I would be more encouraged by an interest in the subject matter than by the words "Well Done".

I'm asking his opinions about the piece because I'm interested in what his intentions were. I have no right to question them and I won't. This guy has written before. He's a big boy and can take care of himself.

There's no beef.  I just can't understand the behavior.  

I'm only one generation away from being born in Britain.  I just got home after visiting relatives I haven't seen for too long.  I have a connection to the country, but that's not necessary to want to understand why this happens and why you are not addressing it.

We're not talking racism here.  There is no difference in race in this story.  My question is, "Why did this happen to this guy"?  Why did it happen to you?   He was treated poorly by the general population.  Why did they act this way?  Taught?  Accepted?  How can I not be serious?

Whether you see it or not, it's very strange and cruel behavior.  It doesn't happen here, and I'm sorry that it happens there.

I hope to hear from the author.

I feel you may be more likely interested in criticizing my response.

This guy has been physically attacked because he's English.  He's from the same country, and he is physically attacked because he speaks the same language, but differently.  Or, because he was born a few miles away.  Is that not surprising?  

People disparage the English openly in front of him.  Groups of people laugh about negative statements made about the English in front of him, knowing he's English.  Is the cruelty of this not surprising?

Is everyone like this?  Is it accepted?  Is it hidden?  Is it discussed?  Is it taught?  What is the cause of it?  This is people in the same country.  How then, do the British feel about people from other countries?

I would also like to hear the author's views on the story.  I'd like to know what he meant by it. (because it's not obvious)

I'm not criticizing the piece. I like it. It's a very good beginning piece and deserves praise. I enjoyed reading it as I said already. I'm saying it has some useful things to say about prejudice, but you seem to want to avoid that discussion.

(as far as satire in the title which is so obvious, he doesn't know what the title means)
