Many A True Thing...

…said in jest. I felt that after the recent onslaught of posts a little light relief might be in order. But, being unable to let go of serious intent, the levity to which I direct your attention is, in the best tradition of British comedy, funny because it’s true. Grotesque, it may be, as if in a circus mirror, but this skit on British sport, manliness, gender, and incompetence is a rather accurate portrayal of life in Blighty. Never one to shun the issues that make us shudder, Mr. Elton plays all the trump cards – race, class, sex, snobbery, and the like – to brilliant effect. I shall leave you to find subsequent parts on youtube. Do enjoy.
