“What’s your favourite animal?”
“I’m more of a dog person”
”Dalmatians. I like Dalmatians”
“Nah. We already picked the emblem with the Lions. Giraffes?”
“You sure? Once we pick it we can’t change it. It’s picked and that’s final.”
“Yes. Yes. I know. I know. Don’t nag me. I know how this works. We’ve been doing it for days. Let’s just finish this and move on”
“Alright Alright I was just making sure after that whole national fru…..”
“Again with the fruit. I LIKE GRAPES. GRAPES ARE GOOD. THEY DON’T HAVE SEEDS AND YOU CAN HAVE HOW MANY YOU WANT!”
”RELAX. Alright then. We’ve decided. The National Animal will be the Giraffe. We have made a decision for the better of the nation. I feel like we’re making some really good progress. What’s next? National Tree or lunch?”
”I kinda like Tigers…...”
And so two people decided for a nation of billions (to be). Just like that. That’s how it happened. I’m not even lying. (They ate lunch next). Then they went on to sort out plenty more things that we as a nation have to come together to embrace. *”WE”* like the Lotus. The Lotus now stands for out country. It's the National flower. There are no two ways about it. That’s how it is and that’s how it will be. Tourists come here, they have to see a lotus. Like a tulip? Move to Amsterdam.
“Why are you late for work?”
“Because peace in the Middle East is important.”
Why can’t we have a national excuse? Because that to me would just be amazing. Imagine to never have to do anything? Imagine(Lennon) the entire country just sitting back and refusing to do work because of bad weather, bad porn, air-borne diseases, water borne diseases, dogs eating homework, cats eating dogs, the politicians, the government, the metro. That would be something…….oh wait.
