Bollocks to earning a living

Monday morning. Do not be tempted to work. There is a game of Mornington Crescent in progress over at Scary's place.

I can't work out the rules - is it synonomous with life - you know, it's just a spoof made up.

Vicus Scurra said...

Yes, it's all very well with your quasi-hippy philosophy, taking every opportunity to ridicule others.
Then you are faced with a new situation, and what do you want? Rules!

Vicus, I feel so lost without some kind of framework to give me guidance. Now the church has gone into decline and we no longer have strong moral values to help us in our day to day lives, I find myself being overwhelmed by temptation at every turn.
Rules, I need rules. Then I can join in with everybody else like I used to before I took that dodgy acid.

What's all this nonsense? There are a million rules in Mornington Crescent. That's the whole point.

Well since I just started my new job this morning, I can only perceive this as a craven attempt to trip me up. But I laugh in the face of the conspirators: I haven't a clue how to play, so I shall not waste time with your foolish games. I shall just troll Gawker, same as always.

I just wanted to say:

woasa. Don't know, just looks good.

They're still bloody playing that daft game over there. Mark just played a move at 9.19 this morning.

Tom, you seem to have an issue with others enjoying themselves. If I remember correctly you were upset about Margaret Thatcher closing the mines, and George Bush invading Iraq.

Don't get me wrong Vicus, I'm all for having a good time. But there do have to be limits. It's no good expecting the economy to maintain steady growth and at the same time sit around playing with your mates. It just doesn't work!

Vicus Scurra said...

Tom, I think you have made a valid and sagacious point there. Thank heavens for people like you who bring sobriety and common sense to these dens of hedonism.

As a upstanding citizen in today's society I feel it is no more than my duty to help mankind fulfil the goal of happiness through material wealth.
I have never forgotten how happy I was, all those years ago, when I opened my first wage packet. I realised then that the journey had begun - a journey of excitement and discovery. Now years later, I am still excited by the joy of stitching someone up in a business deal. The thrill of making money, that's what life is all about. Fuck these well meaning pinko bastards banging on about human rights. I'll tell you about fucking human rights etc etc

I just played Dalston Kingsland. Audacious, eh, Vicus?

Vicus Scurra said...

More conservative than audacious in my view, Pinko.

Is Hainault Gambit allowed?

Krusty, if you have to ask questions like that, then I suggest you find a less stressful and easier game such as Go. I say this in a respectful and loving way, you understand.
