Wednesday’s Piece

“A certain South African tribe considers long speeches injurious both to the orator and his audience. To protect both, there is an unwritten law that every public speaker must stand on one leg while addressing his hearers. As soon as his other foot touches the ground, his speech brought to a close, by force if necessary.”

John Lentell
