What do you mean, Luck **was** the cat. Last I knew Lucky was just fine. What did you do to him?

Don’t get close; he may try to kick you.

Maybe I should wait until I've read the play before I post again.

What makes you think that makes a difference?

Dear participants, dear audience

This thread was of course based on an absurdist play "Waiting for Godot" by Irish writer Samuel Beckett:

http://www.samuel-beckett.net/Waiting_for_Godot_Part1.html

http://www.samuel-beckett.net/Waiting_for_Godot_Part2.html

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-20889073

http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9782000/9782225.stm

I enjoyed this thread in the beginning. There are people here in Setisphere who knew well what this was about, and others who were willing to find out for a bit of literary buffoonery. Thanks to you for nice two acts.

Later, this started to go more widdershins, and there is finite time for everything anyway.

Would someone of the mods now please lock this thread.


Regards
