And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #45

by

The following is a paid political advertisement to elect General Panic:

"Ten-hut! General Panic here. After a lifetime of waging needless wars all over the globe I've come back to throw my hat in the ring for president. My running mate, Major Catastrophe, and I have roamed the length and breadth of this great land and we've learned something: Americans are motivated by fear! So it's my job to scare the utter hell outta you so you'll vote for me!

"Remember, a vote for General Panic will be a Major Catastrophe!

"I'm General Panic and I approved this message."

    Totally nonpartisan. Just a comment on politicians from all parties needing to scare the shit out of us during an election year.

    And I thought that just me and my elder son were XTC fans...

    I liked the early stuff. By the time they were doing stuff like "The Mayor of Simpleton" and "Dear God" I wasn't listening to them anymore. But "Respectable Street" is one of my favorite songs of all time.
