Dear Uncle Arthur

Funny story written by Red Clover

Dear Uncle Arthur,

Please help me. I do not know what to do!

The other day I went to my local library to search for information in support of our local campaign against GM crops. When I arrived I was shocked to see my husband kissing an attractive young librarian in the back office.

When I confronted him when he admitted that he had been having an affair with her for six months since he lost his job as a UK plant breeder. I have tried to discuss the problem with him but he just refuses to admit his difficulties which started when he lost his job.

I still love him dearly but do not know how to reconcile his behaviour and he refuses to attend therapy. Please help!

Uncle Arthur's reply:

Dear Lucyly,

I am sorry to say that I think you are wasting your time. There is very little evidence if any to suggest that GM crops are harmful so you should not have bothered visiting your library. I don't think you would have found any verifiable information to support your cause. I suggest you don't bother going back to the library.

I hope this helps.
