And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #43

by

Now here's New York socialite Ivy League to speak for Ivory Towers Condominiums...

"Darlings, hello! Are you tired of dealing with the ghastly unwashed masses while being chauffeured from your penthouse to the country club? Tired of wading through the proletariat to eat at that five-star restaurant?

"Well, darlings, now you don't have to! The newly opened Ivory Towers is just the place for you. A high-rise featuring everything that you need to live a pretentious life without ever even leaving the building.

"Remember, once you're in your own Ivory Tower you'll never want to come down again!"

    Thanks, Drew. This was partially inspired by all the celebrities sequestered in their mansions with their cooks and servants and saying "We're all in it together."

    Yeah, only some of us are in it a bit deeper. Sounds like I'm channeling Dick Hedd again.

    I think you'd be right to, lol. David Cameron was our PM when he said "we're all in this together" then gave tax breaks to rich corporations and individuals while he increased the financial burden on charities and local authorities. Others have followed in a similar vein. In this respect, Dick Hedd has it right :)
