Cotton

by pauland1707

The waft of fresh cotton and Dopiaza fills the air. All very refreshing in the all new bright sunlit uplands of _Paul_And_Land_. Yes indeed, the ALL NEW bright sunlit uplands of said place with added waft of fresh cotton and dopiaza. And other associated food stuffs of the near and far. Sometimes either further or nearer, season to your own taste. We don’t like to be competitive but four tins of Chopped Tomatoes for less than a _Paul_And_Land_ shiny round thing is purty darned good value, is it not?

Enough of this, let’s cut to the chase so to speak. Bradley “Bloody” Walsh. No that’s not cutting to the chase so to speak but a passing thought on Bradley “Bloody” Walsh so to speak. Where were we? Yes, cutting to the chase so to speak. So there we are snuffling around in the bargain bin of various purveyors of stuff and, not surprisingly, things and yes chopped tomatoes were purchased. Top bargain, buy one get several free, once they’re gone they’re gone, etc and more etc.

Y’see, that’s the way it is with lots of people and persons and folks, snuffling in the bargain bins or, worse, skip-dipping just to get by and find a wee morselette of corn flakes, bread, chopped tomatoes or a frozen TV dinner with frozen spudniks, peas, rubber beef and frozen gravy substitute. Tasty. Or not, even if you season to your own taste. Then again, pop to the local foodbank, get a bag of stuff and a smiley snap with the local Mr or Mrs Member of Parliament MP before they naff off for a bottle of Chablis, a tin of Beluga caviar and a splosh of four star Courvoisier.

Now we don’t like to get controversial here in _Paul_And_Land_* but there appears to be a smidging of hypocrisy at work here. Lots of peoples and persons and folks living off bargain bins and skip-dipped frozen TV dinners with frozen spudniks, peas, rubber beef and frozen gravy substitute whilst the local Mr or Mrs Member of Parliament MP struggles by on a bottle of Chablis, a tin of Beluga caviar and a splosh of four star Courvoisier. And a meadow and a duck chateau and a diamond encrusted toilet brush with added accessories. And a pay-rise.

But now the massed ranks of the citizens of _Paul_And_Land_ are going to the local watering hole. A pint of local watering hole water and 74 straws. Possibly a shared bag of salty nuts. Who can say?
