GPO crib on shaky ground (in more ways than one!)

I got a reply from Minister Ryan telling me he's passed it on to the individual concerned in the GPO. I emailed him back last week to let him know I still had not had a reply. Tonight I passed the GPO and they were installing the crib.

The thing is when it is up it's worth having a look at. The VM looks like Michael Jackson, one of the wise men looks like Mel Brooks and the other looks like Ossama Bin Laden. People for some weird reason throw coins at the baby. Last year I managed to put two pennies over it's eyes and they were there for a day before anyone noticed. Of couse they don't seem to notice the baba that's supposed to be born on the 25th is in place from he end of November either.
Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.
