Ee-arr Terrorism, This Is Manchester. We Do Things Differently Here!

Ee-arr Terrorism, Last night you deliberately attacked a children’s concert in our great city, Manchester. You murdered 21 innocent people, injured and traumatised many more. You should know without any doubt that we don’t condone that sort of shit here regardless of our age, race, religion, sex or sexual preference. You see, when a disgraceful excuse of a human-being attacks our…

If I had a quid for every time I’ve quit smoking I’d be living the dream in a luxury condo within spitting distance of a beach in the Caribbean. In fact, if I had saved every penny I’ve ever spent on smoking over the last 18 years I could be well on the way to that seafront gaff. I’ll cut to the chase. I am currently embarking on my two hundred and fifty millionth attempt to quit smoking.

5 Things That Require Zero Talent
