Releasing Cheaters Into The Wild. Now That’s Tough Love!

The facts: I am a rule follower. My mother wears hearing aids. I like to listen to the BBC a few mornings a week to hear world news and opinion. Now, on with my story…

The other morning I was listening to the BBC when I heard the newscaster say, “Blah, blah, blah (some organization, from India maybe?) is planning on releasing cheaters into the wild.”

Cheaters?

Isn’t that a little harsh?

What will it be like…maybe a remote area, similar to a leper colony? Or will it be like that reality show “Survivor” and there will be cameras, a neutral host and episodes on trust and how to cheat a cheater?

Didn’t she say India? I never realized their justice system was so harsh. Is a cheater someone who cheats on a spelling test or on their taxes? Or is this for cheating spouses? They’ll banish them from society and make them live with their fellow cheaters. See how they like cheating then! Yep. That’ll teach ’em.

And then the newscaster spoke of “Chiner.”

Chiner? I’ve never heard of that country….

Oh, wait. China. And cheetahs. Releasing cheetahs into the wild.

Oops.

Nevermind.

  1. Ha ha! Cute. 🙂

    But I’m all for sending cheating spouses into the wild!

  2. Survivor: Cheater’s Island. Yup. Totally a hit. 🙂

    Hahahah! I love this!

    Hee hee..this kind of reminds me when I was little and I heard about ‘gorilla’ fighters attacking people. I was in awe of, and a little bit freaked out by how intelligent those animals really were. 🙂

  5. Releasing cheaters into the wild – now that’s a clever i-dear.

  6. Oh god, me too with the gorilla fighting — I’d totally forgotten about that. Maybe they can mix it up with the cheetahs. Or the cheaters. Either sounds good.

  7. Crikey, I do love a good British accent … Wait, they don’t say that in Britain, do they? Blimey, I love a good British accent?? You see what I’m trying to say, at least …

  8. Excellent! But those major cheaters would be a good mix with the cheetahs, don’t you think?

  9. Oh I love this! Great post.

  10. I was wondering where this was going Jane – wondering why I didn’t hear about this India thing, considering that my heritage is there. Love the twist. Thanks for the smile.

    Oh, but those accents. I’d happily misunderstand them all day long just to listen to them speak.

  12. Excellent! (But sadly, I think we’d need one huge island to hold all those who qualify – even if only for the worst off-fences!)

  13. Love the accents on BBC. The newscast is a a little more interesting when you have to figure out what they’re actually reporting. Funny.

  14. I love BBC. You get so many fun accents.

  15. Ohhh how I miss Emily! You brought to mind the episode about the Deaf Penalty – what will we do to deaf people, yell at them? Or the issue of Violins on TV. Thanks for an early morning chuckle.

  16. I just stumbled across your blog. I love it! I’m going to poke around, I promise to put everything back where I found it!

  17. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!

    That is HYSTERICAL. 😀

  18. Very funny! Thanks for the laugh!

    hahahaha- this made me laugh out loud this morning, and boy, did I need it. Thank you.
