Cuckoo watch: a friend says that if you want to hear a descending minor third, you need only listen to the current Speaker of the House say 'Order! Order!

Locavore theatre: another friend takes issue with Poor Player's attack on TV's sugary output. 'Has Poor Player ever watched television? Jon Stewart ... the Simpsons ... Mad Men ... it's only bad if you choose to watch the bad stuff.'

But Poor Player has a point: musicals get rolled out across the world with not-such-spectacular sets and not-such-starry leads and after a few assistant directors have come and gone the shows lose any connection to where they came from or who they were for.

The public ends up buying the poster and t-shirt.
