It was a joint board meeting of the Go-Along-To-Get-Alongs and the We-Can-Do-Betters!
So far things were going the way of the Go-Along-To-Get-Alongs. They had got their GATGA contract approved! It was one of the weakest in their history! Everyone was getting less than usual, except for the smiling Talk-a-Lots who where getting a nice little bump! But to the Go-Along-To-Get-alongs, it was an acceptable deal because, well, ah, they were Go-Along-To-Get-Alongs!
Anyway, it was now time to decide if the Kept-In-The-Darks would once again be, ah, well Kept In The Dark. As the vote was called, the GATGA Chairperson, squinched up her button nose with a perplexed expression when she noticed that several of the GATGA’s including the Frumpy Blonde and Bony Worldly Gentleman had their hands raised in favor of leading the Kept-In-The-Darks out into the LIGHT!
What the hell where they doing? Damn! She knew that if the KITD’s where NOT kept in the dark, there would be dark days ahead for her and her agenda. So, she immediately switched off the Light by calling an end to the vote. Ah, there seemed to be some confusion, she muttered! So, ah, in, well, in the meantime, she’d let a couple of more speakers, ah, Speak.
In the meantime, she gave the high sign to her Majority Whip, who immediately whipped into action as she went along to get the “confused” Go-Alongs to Go-Along with the Go-Alongs! In a matter of minutes she had whipped them into shapeand on the next vote they went along and the Keep-In-The-Darks would once again be, ah, well, Kept In The Dark. As the Bony, Worldly Gentleman raised his hand to keep the KITD’s in the dark, he had the expression of a guy who had definitely been POLICY WHIPPED!
So, it looks like once again the KITD’s will be kept in the dark, and will remain there unless of course they stop going along to get along and DEMAND that the lights are turned on! If they don’t there will definitely be DARK DAYS AHEAD !!
