We have been brainwashed

Two weeks ago there was a beach party. The first of the year. Imagine the scene. 23 degrees, gentle breeze, sun high in the sky, drinks and food a plenty. The beach wasn't perfect but we managed some frisbee, and even some swimming. It was lovely, until the sun went down. That's when we discovered that everyone from the UK has been brainwashed.

Light at arms length. Stand well back once lit. NEVER return to a lit firework. This simple education has not made it to the rest of the world. Or maybe it's not education, maybe it's brainwashing by the Government sponsored adverts every November.

You should have seen the British folk cowering and flinching together as Americans and Japanese bonded over a wanton disregard for personal safety. Not only were they standing far too close to lit rockets, they had specifically designed handheld fireworks. Not sparklers, proper 2 million degree centigrade fireworks. What these chaps need is a good dose of mentally scarring adverts involving small children and massive facial deformities. That'll teach 'em.
