A recent advertisement from a theatre company promised: “We have a wonderful season for you. Each show is better than the next!”
I hate to say so, but this is hardly an inducement to buy a season ticket—if every performance I attend will be worse than the one I saw last time.
If I were trying to sell as season, I think my slogan would be: “Each show is just as good as every other show!” Now that’s a goal to try to live up to!
As you have no doubt observed, if you are a Constant Reader, the verses of the Bard of Buffalo Bayou are all worse than the last ones.
A West Indian impresario
Put on a show in Ontario.
But he found the Canadians
Not as droll as Barbadians,
And they yawned throughout his scenario.
