A grant, a grant, my Pentax for a grant.....

    According to the Pentax forum on DP Review (from which I've, once again,
    been banned by Uncle Phil) Pentax have sold about 250,000 dslr's since the
    introduction of the *istD

    Which compares rather meagrely with Canon's 125,000 units per month.

    However, there are advantages in a low volume system - not least from the UK
    Arts Council, an eclectic body of homosexuals, feminists, progressive
    thinkers, and bearded liberals, who exist solely to ladle out vast amounts
    of taxpayers cash to 'new age' artists - particularly artists from
    disadvantaged minority groups.

    The Pentax owner can now take his/her rightful place in the queue for a
    wheelbarrow full of Fifty pound notes, rejoicing in the knowledge that
    he/she is most definitely a minority applicant - why, at a mere 250,000
    cameras sold over a three year period, there are more one-legged Hindu
    transvestites getting Arts Council cash than Pentax owners!

    Grab a Pentax, and come along on the journey to El Dorado!.....

    Gosh, to think "Uncle Phil" banned someone of your obvious intellect and charm
    boggles the mind.

    This sounds like...CANADA!!!
    I want a grant to use sonoluminescense as a power source for nano
    material self-assembly. Can I get a grant of say...$100,000?

    Sarcasm, my dear Brown, is best applied with surgical precision - a deft
    snip here, a skilled stitch there.

    To watch you attempting it, is rather similar to witnessing a builder's
    labourer performing open heart surgery with a mortar trowel - grotesque, yet
    strangely compelling.

    Ah yes. I should have seen that too. :eek:)
    Funny thing is, my reply to you still hasn't even appeared in
    rec.photo.digital.slr-systems anyway.

    perhaps it is because you do for pentax what george preddy does for sigma.
    ian lincoln, Apr 8, 2006
  15. Yeah, but subtle stuff does not work with semi-literates. A turn of a
    phrase is simply casting pearls before swine on usenet.
    Love that!
