The Flea's Laws of Universal Natural Justice


It was Grade 10 when a best friend of the Flea, who shall remain nameless, complained to me his cheating had failed to earn him any extra credit. It is not fair, he observed o so bitterly. But it was fair, I replied o so incisively. In fact, it is one of the few entirely fair assessments in the educational process: the better you are at cheating the more marks will result. And if your cheating skills are poor you may be caught and earn no credit whatsoever. In this way was discovered the first of The Flea's Laws of Universal Natural Justice (PLUNJ).

But it is the fourth of these immutable Laws to which I draw your attention upon the announcement of the forthcoming nuptials of "goth rocker" Marilyn Manson and aptly named burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese. While the fourth law was derived from the existence of ABBA its utility as a maxim is entirely applicable in this instance. If you are in a band - if you are the drummer in a band - it does not matter what you look like: you will still get laid. So, full marks to Brian Warner for the transformation then.

Hmmm, I wonder if Jane Wiedlin was there. She & Dita are good friends & probably fb's
