Pops the Pedagogue
Pops? What is a recession?
Have they got a piggy bank?
Will he pay us back?
No one really knows; but we will have to wait and see.
What are you doing on the computer, Pops?
I'm reading some bus timetables for South Yorkshire.
Why are you doing that, Pops?
I want to know if the times have changed.
And have the times changed, Pops?
This leaflet says times will change from 23rd July.
Is that exciting, Pops?
Not really, nothing is different; the times are all exactly the same as before.
So the leaflet is the same as the last one?
Well, the leaflet does tell me that the times will change ...
I don't understand, Pops
... they will be different during the summer holidays ...
So it does tell you the new times, Pops?
Neither does this one for route 88 ...
When it's a recession and nobody has any money?
How many pages of old times have they printed, Pops?
Isn't that very very silly, Pops?
Shouldn't someone tell them to stop; and save lots of pennies?
So why don't they, Pops?
Thank you, Pops.
Now there's a novelty.
