People Speaking - Not Good

— "Wai-wai-wai. They say that what Sharon has this time is worse than than the previous."

— "Why wai-wai-wai?"

— "A sick prime-minister is not a good thing."

— "Why not good?"

— "What do you say, that a sick prime-minister is a good thing?"

(It's not cynicism, it's linguistics.)
