My favourite Robin Williams line

August 12th, 2014 · Posted by Skuds in Life/Politics · No Comments · Life, Politics

One reason why I like comedy is the way that a comedian can often manage to sum up a whole social issue in a one-liner that makes its point better than a politician could in an entire speech, and still make you laugh  When politicians try humour it is cringeworthy at best, but when comedians try politics it is often a lighbulb moment.

Which brings me to my favourite Robin Williams line, one which I have repeated many times, and although it comes from an old VHS I had in the late 80’s or early 90’s it is still depressingly relevent today.

When your company is paying you minimum wage it is just their way of telling you that they would pay you less if they were allowed to.

Of course, back then we didn’t have a minimum wage here, but we still got the joke and the implications of it.
