Mary Poppins

Recommended Posts

(inspiration from the "God Spot" on the Today programme)

Remember the film Mary Poppins, where the kids cause a run on the bank by wanting to buy seed for the birds instead of putting their money in the bank?

I'm taking my guitar down to the Golders Green branch of NR this lunchtime to serenade the queue with the song, altogether now;

"Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag......."

Anyone want to give me odds on how long it takes before I get my lights punched out?

How anyone can claim that the banking system is a big scam when one of the most popular children's films of all time tells the kiddies loud and clear that their deposits will be invested in "railways through Africa, dams across the Nile, etc" I don't know. ;)

Yeah, Mary Poppins is a tool of the Illuminati!

Proof (if it were required) that I am a sad individual the events of the end of last week inspired me to dust off the Mary Poppins DVD and watch it again - a superb film if ever there was one.

I think you should go dressed as a pearly queen and give them a rendition of Supoercaifragelisticexpialidocious....

Love it. :D

Wonder how many will get the connection though? Probably need at least a quid to open an account nowadays though, never mind tuppence. :rolleyes:

Ahhhh, classic. I needed that!

:rolleyes:

'Mr. Dawes Sr, Mr. Banks and Bankers:

If you invest your tuppence

Wisely in the bank

Safe and sound

Soon that tuppence,

Safely invested in the bank,

Will compound

And you'll achieve that sense of conquest

As your affluence expands

In the hands of the directors

Who invest as propriety demands

You see, Michael, you'll be part of

Railways through Africa

Dams across the Nile

Fleets of ocean greyhounds

Majestic, self-amortizing canals

Plantations of ripening tea

All from tuppence, prudently

Fruitfully, frugally invested

In the, to be specific,

In the Dawes, Tomes

Mousely, Grubbs

Fidelity Fiduciary Bank!

Now, Michael,

When you deposit tuppence in a bank account

Soon you'll see

That it blooms into credit of a generous amount

Semiannually

And you'll achieve that sense of stature

As your influence expands

To the high financial strata

That established credit now commands

You can purchase first and second trust deeds

Think of the foreclosures!

Bonds! Chattels! Dividends! Shares!

Bankruptcies! Debtor sales!

Opportunities!

All manner of private enterprise!

Shipyards! The mercantile!

Collieries! Tanneries!

Incorporations! Amalgamations! Banks!

You see, Michael

Tuppence, patiently, cautiously trustingly invested

In the, to be specific,

In the Dawes, Tomes

Mousely, Grubbs

Fidelity Fiduciary Bank!'

Love it :o

Classic!

I think I'm likely to get stoned to death if I sing the bank song!

I'll stick with Feed the Birds, by the time one of them in the queue makes the connection I'll have my running shoes laced up and ready to go.

"Gawd bless yar, Mary Pahpins".
