Subject: RE: BS: Musical chairs: a warning
Sorry, folks, apologies for starting the world's worst thread!
(Never got a superlative before!)
Can I close it down with this po-faced letter to today's London Guardian:
"Games such as musical chairs serve to teach that order, community and gain through achievement are integral values in our society, achieved by care, compromise and cooperation - far from the insidious systemised intimidation that pervades when children, left to their own devices, create a directly consumerist hierarchicy structured with playing cards depicting sworn enemies and assailants vested with spurious powers, locked in an endless game that can nevr be won". Julian Firth, London
I think he's referring to Pokemon cards!
NO MORE POSTINGS,TO THIS THREAD FOLKS, let's enjoy the weekend!RtS
