Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It reminded me of a story told to me by a Ozzie Business IT lecturer, who was a singer. There was an audition for the choir that he was in, and "Lets call the whole thing off" was the audition piece. One singer begins singing the audition piece "straight" ... "you say tomahto, I say tomahto, you say potahto, I say potahto, let's do it, let's call the whole thing off ..." and then stops ...

"Excuse me, it seems there is some conflict in this song, but I'm afraid I'm not getting it".

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
