I Resemble That Remark


The ever wonderful Wiley Miller and Non Sequitur.
The one for the next day is also good. I can tell you from my experience as a public servant, though, that the entrance labeled "Public" could also be "public servants" and the guy in the middle the "Minister" (Secretary for you Yanks).

One time chatting with a rep from an industry association (and for a big IT outfit) he remarked we public servants seemed a bit afraid of the industry reps. I replied 'That's because you have better access to our Minister than we do.' He laughed and acknowledged the truth of that. I also I once had a lobbyist offer to lobby my Minister on behalf of a policy that I was working on. Regretably (and my regret is genuine - lobbyists aren't always wrong), I had to decline the offer.
Apropos of practically nothing, one of my favorite television shows of all time was "Yes, Minister," even if I am an ignorant "Merkin."
