Life out-satirises satire

The Dim Post  tops his blog with this quote from Juvenal 1:  It’s difficult not to write satire.

Not PC gave an irony alert  last week when he observed, You just can’t make this stuff up.. . when noting the headline Rubgy: Race rule may stop Maori playing Boks.

Now we have another example of life out-satirising satire with the story that police have had to change a test after one of the recruits got hold of it and circulated it to others.

And a special mention for stating the obvious to the spokesman who said:

. . .  it is disappointing applicants would think it is appropriate to join the police through dishonest practices.

If you tried to put that in a work of fiction you’d be told it was too far-fetched.

    That’s a very sad reflection of where our society is at HP – everyone, even our police recruits, ant things handed to them on a plate. I reckon that this is the price we are paying for an education system that dumbs down and equalises everyone, instead of allowing the students with the most potential to shine. We are reaping what we have sown.

    Whoops – that should be “want things handed to them on a plate”
