Dear The Kaiser Chiefs
Re: I Predict A Riot
Forgive me, Mr Wilson and friends, for my lack of excitement concerning your powers of prediction. It is, after all, a fairly simple matter to forecast a civil disturbance somewhere in the world at an unspecified time in the future. One may also “predict” the wearing of a beige jacket, the purchase of a refrigerator, or damp weather; without providing further details, one hardly requires Nostradamus-like insight.
If, however, you have information regarding where and when such a “riot” is likely to take place, I suggest that you inform the Police Force immediately, in order for them to make the necessary arrangements to combat such mass misbehaviour.
My wife Olive and I would like to “tell thee” that we find your musical efforts muscular and catchy, in equal measure. Despite your facile prophecies, we would like to wish you every success in the future.
