MY WIFE, ON OCCUPATION-BASED MANUFACTURED POP ACTS

My wife, Chris, on excellent form this morning:

"Y'know," she said, "Instead of The Priests or The Soldiers, maybe bloody Simon Cowell or someone should put together some *proper* occupation-based bands like The Janitors or The Dustbin Men or...or..." (mental cogs whirring ) "...The Striking Postmen."

Me (looking up from relative safety of the kitchen table): "There should be one called The Writers..."

Chris (witheringly): "Well, if there was, then no one one would bloody hear what you were singing, because you'd all be staring at your navels..."

I have a hard time imagining a band called The Janitors that isn't punkrock. Personally, I've always been tempted to start a Kraftwerkian band called The Actuarians.
