Smother Party

January 16, 2017

To continue my series of posts titled Classics on America or Britain, here is a quote from Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs, in which he describes a time-honored English custom.

This is a rural English custom designed to eliminate aged and bedfast dependents. A family so afflicted throws a “smother party” where the guests pile mattresses on the old liability, climb up on top of the mattresses and lush themselves out.

Nice, isn’t it.

I guess, what with the current sorry state of the NHS, this type of entertainment may well be on the rise in the UK.

The American equivalent is known more prosaically as the “Mattress Party” which actually might also become more prevalent once Obamacare gets truly repealed by the Reptilians… ahem… Republicans.

And, while I am at it, here a quote on America (meaning the USofA) from same:

America is not a young land: it is old and dirty and evil before the settlers, before the Indians. The evil is there waiting.

Well, nothing new here.
