We work pretty hard
here in the Snort office. And it
can get pretty hot. Not because we’re
working hard – mainly because we’re in a small room and can’t afford air
conditioning. Or fans. Or windows. Ok…so…we’re in the windowless study at Mums. Happy? There. We said
it. We work at our Mum’s house.
Anyway, if our Mum
lived in Chile (Which she never could, cause she’s nowhere near hot enough) and
we got too hot in our/her office, then all we’d have to do is take our ties
off. Because this summer Chile’s
economy minister is encouraging the men of his country (and fashion-bending
women presumably) to not wear ties to save energy.
You see, if they didn’t
have ties on then they wouldn’t get so hot and the country would save a bundle
on the electricity it takes to power anti-tie air-con. And while Snort is hot in our little
room, this particular cooling technique wouldn’t help us because we don’t wear
ties. We have an un-usually large
neck and Mum says a tie just accentuates that. She’s right. We know she’s right.
