"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,
like a salted

"Brits' sense of humour fails at the age of 52, study finds
'Victor Meldrew Syndrome’, when adults become more grumpy than happy, kicks in at the ripe old age of 52, scientists have found
It is then that both men and women begin to suffer a sharp decline in their sense of humour and get increasingly grumpy, according to scientists at the University of Glamorgan.
Victor Meldrew knows that being curmudgeonly is a comfort
The study also backed the long held belief, epitomised by Meldrew, that older men are grumpier than women – four times grumpier in fact, for those in their sixties.
Researcher Dr Lesley Harbidge of Glamorgan University said: "The Lifetime of Laughter Scale shows that there really is a law of diminishing returns when it comes to laughter.
"We laugh twice as much in our teens as we do in our fifties. And our findings suggest that it's all downhill from 52.”
The study found that while an infant can laugh aloud as many as 300 times every day, life rapidly becomes far less fun."
Dr Harbridge is a twat
I have just opened 16 cards ( thank you bloggers who sent me one btw....the postman had great fun sorting out the vague addresses) ......received two garden vouchers, 2 T shirts, 3 smart shirts, three pairs of pants, a small wooden chicken, and tickets to see 12 Angry Men

I HAVE SMILED THREE TIMES ALREADY! Mind you...one of those were as a direct result of an overly large bowel movement
