A few years ago, there was a story going around about a hippie who was standing on a street corner in New York City and snapping his fingers and making clucking sounds with his tongue, like the Zulu.
A policeman approached the man and asked what he was doing.
“I’m keeping the elephants away,” he replied.
The policeman said, “But there are no elephants around here.”
And the man replied, “See? It works.”
I can hear the St. John’s Port Authority bragging a few years from now, “We have not had a single security breach since we put up that fence at the harbour front.”
Of course we never had a breach before, but that won’t be mentioned, and should we, the people, question that, their response will be that they can’t comment, for reasons of security.
What a world of total B.S. we live in!
Fences never keep one out, they keep one in.
