Issue 654 Volume 3 Number 154
It's Friday, November 18, 2022 and we hope that a reader can explain this sentence to your newsletter purveyors: ‘David and Stephen Jackson run the high-yielding Ottawa herd of 270 cows at Fairview Farm, Belfast Road, Bangor, Co Antrim.’ It’s from a recent story in the Irish Farmer’s Journal – What? You’re not a subscriber? – and we have no clue what an ‘Ottawa herd’ is. Would some cow spotter please enlighten us?

▪️Pretty Woman continues until Sunday at the NAC. We’ve got to be honest: it wasn’t our favourite show (It wasn’t our favourite film to start with, so the musical didn’t really stand a chance). To us, there’s not much that’s song and dance-y about a sex worker being paid by a grumpy business guy for a week of companionship and, well, sex. Maybe it’s just us, but it’s pretty cringeworthy to see a transactional sex act on a piano heating up as the lights dim between scenes. Aside from all that, there’s a good musical number with many of the supporting characters in the first act that allowed us to forget the plot for a few minutes. It probably is just us; the people sitting around us on Tuesday night all seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the show.
