London: Four months ago, a 20 year old man dressed neatly in an expensive suit , but soaking wet was found wandering on a beach by police. He refused to speak, so police took him to a mental health unit for evaluation.
During his evaluation , he was given a piece of paper and a pen and promptly drew a sketch of a concert style piano. Someone decided to let him sit at a piano in the hospital chapel, and-according to one of the psychiatrists , he gave a brilliant concert recital.
Dubbed The Piano Man , the stranger immediately became the rage among Britains culturally sensitive , and the hospital was inundated by well-meant suggestions and advice. Many hoped he would someday be cured of his strange infirmity , and take his rightful place on the concert stage.
Unfortunately , the lid of the piano crashed down so to speak when German authorities identified the mystery man as a German national of rather plebian origins whose last known employment was in a psychiatric institute in Bavaria ; where , it is believed , he became quite adept at mimicking the symptoms of genuinely disturbed patients.
On learning this , British health officials decided The Piano Man had made marked improvement , and was fit for repatriation : the sooner the better.
( Both Britain and Germany have government-paid healthcare. I wonder which set of taxpayers will get stuck paying for this gentlemans musical interlude ?)
I believe this has now been debunked. The fellow can play snippets of a few tunes. That's all.
Liberalism is a mental disease. What are the governments'excuses?
"That recital was BRILLIANT!"
You're quite correct on that !
