"Put your money where your mouth is tonight" says it all. Or does it?

The priceless Pulp lyrics in This is Hardcore also have a conciliatory tone: "leave your make-up on and I'll leave on the light." Unlike the tone taken by GoodOil films when they asked Lambton Quay businesses to leave the lights on this weekend. What's in it for us?

Certainly not some kind of saucy romp a-la Pulps Jarvis Cocker. Frogblog had a word or two to say about the audacity of that lighting letter I posted about. But the response there was a little muted.

In fact Pulp provides more than a little inspiration for considering a response to such pompous drivel. One similar to Cockers "let your arse speak your mind" display to Michael Jackson at the 1996 Brit Awards would seem appropriately inappropriate.

Don't panic Mum. I'm not likely to be done for sedition. Baring your arse in public is apparently OK. What's more, I'm a good lad, I'd never...

In short good people, turn the lights off when you leave work. Especially this Friday.

I can hear the choppers, the b'stards. Lots of snooty people in hi-viz jackets about earlier. Even lights on by the floor-full. Does anybody read your advice? Kidding.
