Licensed To Party

What a fascinating spectacle…
How to define in law
A social occasion?

Can you defend your gathering
Was it a party
Was it a dinner
Was it a work meeting
Did you play Hungry Hippos?

When does a meeting
Become a party
And when does a party
Become a meeting
Therein lies the built-in, implicit need
For discretion and subjective judgement

But that doesn’t hold up in a court!

So, if we are really going to do this
Why not simply argue
Why your party was a work meeting
Instructions unclear
You were confused
Because, after all
For persuasive evidence of that…
Just point to the prime minister himself
And those who wrote the laws!

Thus, by their ridiculous actions
The whole premise breaks down
And we are left with
The interesting yet catastrophically-absurd navel-gazing thought experiment!

Good evening and welcome…
Come on in!
My 35th birthday party
…Is compliant with British Standards BS 80085! πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“

noun: navel-gazing
self-indulgent or excessive contemplation of oneself or a single issue, at the expense of a wider view.

    1. Ha! Good point. You know the answer to that.

      Interestingly though one side (Labour) DID have a meeting agenda.

      Although even parties can have agendas sometimes when host is really organised πŸ˜…πŸ‘. You know the type and their parties are shit, more like a work meeting πŸ˜‚.


    1. Does it still say super spreader for you? I made a few modifications way before you read it, just wondering how effectively it updates!
