I’m full on lamb, squash and asparagus – I love lamb – and listening to Greg Proops, expecting he’s going to do a Nelson Mandela obit. He’s reading an article about some pig protest in Italy. He’s singing a lot in this episode. I’m drinking Guinness.
He’s doing the Mandela Obit. The way Proops speaks is so emotionally driving. I’m Drinking whisky now. Proops is defending poetry in politics. Mandela the poet:
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head; if you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”
“Resentment is like drinking poison, and hoping it will kill your enemies.”
Proops keeps saying, “We’re all lucky to have lived when he lived.”
