Something for the weekend. I have always been a sucker for Gilbert and Sullivan. One of my favorite plays is The Mikado, and one of my favorite songs is that paean to lethal removal of annoying people, “I’ve Got a Little List”, with its endless variants.
Other than bloviating bloggers, who else would be on your own personal list? Mine would start with judges who cannot tell time and who habitually start court ten to fifteen minutes late! Then all telemarketers certainly would not be missed. That blight upon humanity who conduct cell phone conversations at the top of their lungs. People in movie theaters who decide to give a running commentary. Whoever invented Vista. The French. Lawyers of course (I might give myself an exemption). IRS agents and their descendants to the tenth generation. Road hogs. Politicians. Ink-stained wretches of the Fourth Estate. People who believe the height of wit is to use the F word in public. Anyone who read the DaVinci Code without either vomiting or laughing hysterically. Mopes. Dopes. Misanthropes.
Ah, that was refreshing! Here is something for those going through Battlestar Galactica withdrawal.
