Strange discussion with Drayton Parslow just now. He accused our flowers arrangers of heresy for using oasis to support their arrangements. Apparently it's been banned by EA Sports after a programming bug allowed Noel Gallagher to end up as manager of Man Utd.
He told us they should instead look to the Biblical models of flower display. "Consider the lilies of the field", he said. So we did. As we threw him out in the field. The grass may wither, and the flowers fade, but oasis seems to last forever.
