I'm thinking about forming a complaints choir in time for the annual HAJET talent show. Hey -- they have them in
Birmingham (the first complaints choir)
Helsinki (far funnier and a bigger choir)
the children of Poikkilaakso Elementary School
and there's even a CBC radio version (hooray CANCON!)
Overpaid, underworked English teachers need a complaints choir too. If you aren't familiar with the concept the complaints choir website explains:
In the Finnish vocabulary there is an expression "Valituskuoro". It means "Complaints Choir" and it is used to describe situations where a lot of people are complaining simultaneously. Kalleinen and Kochta-Kalleinen thought: "Wouldn´t it be fantastic to take this expression literally and organise a real Complaints Choir!"
What a great idea. Now all I need is a choir.
It's not fair!
