I Think I’ll Have To Give Up Looking For ‘Peak Guardian’…

…there is no practical reason to tilt the bowl away from you as you finish the last dregs of your soup, other than as some coded middle-class signalling to people around the table that you too unthinkingly adhere to petty bourgeois niceties.

Arts Editor: “How many levels of wokeness are you on, my dude?”

Food Editor: “With this reference to class struggle in soup consumption, about 7 or 8.”

Arts Editor: “You are like little baby…”

This excellent organisation, it seems from this detailed delve into history, was the true originality of the Assyrian Empire. It was precociously modern in its organisational rigour. Ashurbanipal was not a romantic conqueror like Alexander the Great or Daenerys Targaryen. He was the CEO of a ruthless global enterprise. Perhaps it is weirdly fitting that the exhibition is sponsored with much fanfare by BP. The controversial oil company is part of the relentless machinery of the modern world that exploits nature even faster than Ashurbanipal killed lions.

Parody is dead.

    Playing chicken however puts eating chicken soup in its minor placings. The ground preparation offers a huge array of venue from motorway to cornish country lane, even unto beach, and the combination of vehicles and their models/ages/colour schemes/ engine sizes/ seating arrangements, and passengers present at the encounter, with details of the clothing from underwear to hats, simply add levels of complexity and mathematical calculation. That is even before we get to the crane.

    “tilt the bowl away from you as you finish the last dregs of your soup, other than as some coded middle-class signalling to people around the table that you too unthinkingly adhere to petty bourgeois niceties”

    Derives from eating on a boat and from rickety tables, crushed rooms etc – motion/knock deposits on table not crotch; still sensible and not petty bourgeois. The Groan wrong again.

    Does The Groan claim sifting flower is petty bourgeois?

    BP.is now controversial? More or less than EU & Traitor May?
