And So It Begins
‘Is this thing on?’ peeeeEEEEEEEeeeeeeep
‘Wait… One! Two!’ squueeeeEEEEEK!
‘To close to the loudspeakers? Ok. This better?’
‘Ok. Ok. Good-good evening everybody. Nice to see so many people here tonight. It’s a special evening tonight and on behalf of the organising committee I would like to welcome you all here and thank you for your patience.
Before we start our regular programme I would just like to make an announcement: I’m going to be a daddy.’
‘Thank you, thank you very much, also on behalf of the mother-to-be. As you may know this will be our firstborn…’
[More polite applause]
‘thank you. So we can use all the money we can get and we decided to make this a pay-site.’
[dead silence, manifest absence of applause and sound of crickets chirping]
‘Just kidding of course, hahah. So enjoy the evening!’
[Leaves stage, no more applause]
