High wire acrobats with no safety net


Dear Hillary,

Well here we are in 2012, and how many farangs are going to throw themselves off high buildings this year, after finding that their absolute gem was only interested in their money?  Would you like to have a small wager as to just how many?  I’ll say one a month, that’s 12 for the year.  Just why do they do it?


Dear George,

Why do they throw themselves off high buildings?  Because the train service is only once a day at a most inhospitable time!  No, I won’t take you up on your wager as it might only encourage some of them.  My Petal, it’s all a bit sad really, and I don’t think you should be making jokes about it.  It would be better if you started something for the farangs as a support for them in their time of extreme need.  Think it over.
