dachshunds and snow

« previous entry | next entry »

The upshot of all this snow is of course that everything in the bloody country closes down. Because you know, before this it was just an concept, something that could theoretically happen but never had, the subject of alternate-historical novels. For instance, The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe was lauded as a realistic portrayal of a possible England, apart from the snow; reviewers generally felt that this took it over the line into obvious fantasy and spoiled the believability of the Jesus/Lion part.

It might also be - at a guess - because public snow clearance services have been privatised under a stupid name and contracted to Capita, who subcontracted it to a firm specialising in subcontracting who have subsubcontracted it to a subsubcontractor whose workforce consists of three dachshunds and a shovel. Three dachshunds on minimum wage. An extensive workforce won't be necessary though, given that the original contract, when closely examined by people who are not drunk, requires Capita to do absolutely nothing to receive an extensive subsidy with all loans guaranteed.

Points will be awarded to the first spotting of a journalist linking the snow to the Credit Crunch.

Everyone needs to run to the pub, fill up and then go out and write their name in the street (ladies can use a stencil). PROBLEM SORTED.

So how much snow did you get? For god's sake, you ought to at least insist that St. Bernard's do the shoveling. They could run to the bar and get your cigarettes, too.

Never seen so many sleds in my life: how many years have they been cluttering up people's sheds, bless them? Mind you I was quite tempted to hijack one to get down Lewisham Hill on the way in this morning.
