“Eggs have become very expensive.” “Everything has, the Sensitive Price Index is over 42 percent and the Consumer Price Index that includes imported inflation is in the late 20s and…”

“Late 20s?”

“Well data integrity with respect to certain indicators is suspect and…wait…let me finish I reckon all governments not only the Shetland pony government of today, but all prefer indicators of public interest to show an improvement – inflation and unemployment and…”

“Even if that disables them from taking timely, informed decisions?”

“Even if my friend. And it’s easy for our revolving finance ministers – you know as Michael Jackson’s song says, they can blame it on the boogie…”

“And the boogie I assume is the International Monetary Fund?”

“Indeed, meanwhile they continue to mis-spend our tax rupees…”why are you laughing?”

“There is misinformation and now mis-spend hunh!”

“That’s right, and need I add the number of misses is rising exponentially…”

“Indeed words that are uttered in Christian marriages to this day seeking anyone’s opposition to a marriage, but I tell these words were never uttered by any of our party leaders – The Man Who Must Remain Nameless cause had he said those words I can imagine an entire ten kilometers long line…”

“It’s his private matter but anyway The Man Who Refuses to Spend on Elections, Nawaz Sharif, also did not utter these words…”

“These are weighty matters, sadly, so let’s not be facetious.”
