close encounters of the snurd kind

(We are not alone.)

Watching a concert on TV with my feminist cousin Pauline.
A tolerably listenable British pop group from the 1980's are singing something called The Sultans Of Swing.
"Why are you smiling?" asks the feminist cousin, "Does it bring back memories of your youth?"
The noble Heelers shakes his head.
"I'm smiling because I'm thinking of my own version of a Dire Straits song," I explain.
"How does it go?" says she.
"It goes: Hey Gerry Adams, you nearly gave me an heart attack, underneath my window, singing hey nah the IRA is back."
"Hey that's kinda funny."
"You like it?"
"I sort of do."
"Does that mean you're going to start reading my blog again?"
"Why not?"
"Because I don't need to read things that do nothing except make me angry."
