George of the Junkle

Pass The Tissues Tuesday song is "Careless Whisper" by the South-African band Seether, originally by the pop singer/performer George Michael.

George Michael once said "Even though it's become a really clich├ęd thing to see musicians working for charity, it's still effective and it still has to be done." Yes, no, and no. It is clich├ęd and you do it only to show your new designer, glittering pants. It is not effective according to the old Chinese proverb "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime". And we know by now the Chinese are always right. While, of course, being left. If the basic and the most important human function is to procreate, they are doing pretty much the best job. Why, if I only had a nickel for every Chinese... I'd have more than a billion of nickels. With each of them weighing 5 grams, I would effectively have 6,7 tons of pigeon ammo. That should be enough to de-pigeonize the Earth. Ever eaten squab? Me neither. Yet. Oh, wait, back to George. Actually, no. It's sometimes too dangerous to argue with someone who also said "Of course, I want to sell this record - there's no point making it otherwise." Sell your records Georgie-Porgie and save the world! You da man! Suppaman!
