Need a Job? Become a Butler to the Rich and Famous!

Chelmsford School for Butlers

Out of work? Ready to do anything? Why not sign on to the Chelmsford school and learn how to "truly" serve?



And another:

Meet the Peasants

A British documentary profiles a U.S. couple who "choose" to become peasants, with painfully funny vignettes from their lives.


And in the end, this is what it's truly all about, thinking your free during your lifetime of slavery.

"Working Class Hero" by John Lennon


As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

Well Greg....
I don't know whether I should laugh or cry?

I mean the humour was there, but, below the surface, it was painful.

As for the John Lennon song.

One of my favourites by him.
I always wondered what was in his head as he wrote that one?

I'm just guessing, but since John had a large and generous heart, he was probably writing for us slaves, letting us know in a slightly sarcastic way to rise up and throw off your chains.
