The Man With A Long Chin's Diary


Lighter Maker


8 July 1998 - LIGHTER MAKER

I've stopped being Medusa now, and have a new job working in a factory which makes cigarette lighters. You wouldn't think so, but we laugh all day in here!

My colleague, Thomas Boppa, and I spend much of our time playing practical jokes on another colleague, Samuel Hoffman. Yesterday, for instance, we dropped his ham rolls in the lighter fluid vat, and then made him eat them. He was complaining about stomach cramps and a burning throat for the rest of the afternoon! We laughed and laughed.

10 July 1998 - LIGHTER MAKER

Our bosses here at the cigarette lighter factory sure know how to keep us workers happy; yesterday they hired a couple of clowns to entertain us while we worked.

This was great fun for a couple of hours, as the clowns japed and pranced around us, throwing buckets of shredded paper in our faces. Things took a sour turn when my colleague, Maureen Posh, snapped and attacked one of the clowns. As others joined in, the fight spilled out into the car park, and was still raging seven hours later.
