Cheer up, it may never happen



My Brexit comment was posted as a "review" of a book with the bizarrely brilliant title "Pounded By The Pound: Turned Gay by the Socioeconomic Implications of Britian Leaving the European Union" by Chuck Tingle. Who else?

Phew, for a moment I assumed the world was coming to a speedy end on Friday, June 23. Not sure why, though, but all of a sudden the media was talking about an impending apocalypse.

But why?

It wasn't the migrant crisis, global warming, peak oil, terrorism, Russian breakaway republics or even the latest episode of “Game of Thrones”. No, it was some stuff about, I don't know, some kind of new biscuit for tea time or something. “Brexit”, it was called. Apparently, it meshes badly with Scotch Whiskey. Some café at “10 Downing Street” (curiously, the British PM lives on the same street) had sold too many of them, or something like that.

OK, it's July now and it seems everything is back to normal. You know, the migrant crisis, global warming, peak oil, terrorism, Russian breakaway republics and the latest episode of “Game of Thrones”. Or “Dr Who”, if you're British. Clearly, the entire Brexit scare was an early silly season story!
