The human chicken

uomopollo.jpg


Three ducks have died from bird flu and thousands of turkeys have been slaughtered in Turkey.
On the TV News these facts have been given precedence over the 30,000 dead in Pakistan’s earthquake.

We can keep our feathers unruffled because we’ve been told as much by the experts who have been put in place by the dwarf who is a providence-carrier (see post of 23August 2005 – where you’ll notice that this is a reference to Berlusconi). We can be calm because the reserve of anti-virals in Italy is at a level that is one eightieth of that of France.

Oh yes! This is self-control!

What is bird flu? Now we can catch the virus from chickens instead of from a great f...? The reason is in the great and mysterious phenomenon of evolution: humans are evolving towards the chickens.

No – on the contrary.
We need to be optimistic.
“Everything’s fine”, terrible expression!
“No need to worry” another terrible expression!

The chicken-human is born, the average westerner who lives a low-cost life and is content to find savings. “With 30 Euro I’ll take you to 8000 metres.”
With less than the price of a chicken we can take a plane to America, as long as it doesn’t disintegrate on landing because its undercarriage is really a scooter.

Are we humans or chickens????
A chicken knows that it costs very little and it doesn’t even try to fly.
A human who is at peace flying at the price of a chicken is more chicken than a chicken.
Behold the reason why viruses start to find a way of passing from chickens to humans.

IO non avrei problem per scrivere in inglese ma vorrei sapere : la mia amica mi ha detto ieri : sopratutto non dimenticare quello che ti ho detto vai sul sito di Beppe Grilli... Ed io ci sono andata. Sono francese e vivo in Toscana da
2 anni; MI piace de capire quello che faccio e che vedo. Dunque chi mi potrebbe dare una spiegazione per favore? QUANDO SCRIVO come devo scrivere in francese, in italiano o in Inglese?

Dunque chi legge queste lettere e queste notizie tutti parlano inglese??? Molto sorpresa anche se piacevolmente.

SALUTI buon segno, oggi e il mio compleanno
74 anni computi et un moral completamente a ZERO

Fabio Paini wote:
>>....TV news waste time advising us about
>> phantomatic pendent terroristic attack! "

>phantomatic? what do you mean?

I mean "phantomatic attack" 'cause nobody told us when and where it could happen, it's not serious, these are only words in the wind, a duck's quacking.

I'm claver too to say "maybe one day there will be an attack in Italy" it's too easy, if a serious intelligence service discovers a threat of attack, doesn't say nothing, but it works to find "who, when and where" and stops it.

Currently it's only a way to push us to think to something else and not to the real problems of our country.

Bye

Good initiative Beppe, now let's invite some foreigner in this blog, but the fact that your articles are readable in eglish is already good, if they then want to comment they are welcome right?

Dear mr. Grillo

Don't worry too much if people are just talking about how fun is practice their english and none cares about the subject of your post...
(actually it is a little confused with chicken disease and low cost flight)
This is an excellent way to make people abroad understand what a mess Italy is and ,also, it can make us feel a little bit more European.
Take care

Hey Beppe!
would you be able to make a show in english
or to subtitle your latest dvd show?
would be cool!

Great Beppe for the English version but, please, make us a promise: that you'll keep it!!! People around the world do desperately need your denouncing voice. Don't be tempted to clear off!!! There no reason to think that the same rise of contacts you had on the italian version can't happen with this version. Hang on in there!

phantomatic? what do you mean?
something happened in London lately (and if you want to be a secret in Madrid and NYC too, before)
Silvio is a loser but that's nothing to do with the fear of terrorism

Nothing is more worring than an Italian talker who says the magic words "no problem"

Posted by: Fabio Paini | October 12, 2005 09:24 AM


Nice idea this english version!

I will try to spread the news of this initiative as much as possible so that my colleagues and friends abroad will get to know Grillo and will be able to read this blog.

Keep up the good work!

Even in the english version we still have the "idiot" who says FIRST!!!!
Poor, poor italy
kisses

English language Blog is a great initiative, people around the world must join us in this growing fence, and that's why I decided to start writing here.

Yep Beppe, what really makes me crazy too are those two idiot and dangerous phrases: “Everything’s fine” and “No need to worry”, made up for our ipnotic quiet, while our premier TV news waste time advising us about a phantomatic pendent terroristic attack!

Who really believes in this crap?

Who are the real enemies? Who's killing our society and our healt? Reading this blog is easy to find infos about it.

Let's start thinkin', worldwide friends, and join us...

Sad cheers...
