    I just told the wife she's got to take a pay cut. All the bills are going up and I need the revenue to pay them.

    I have heard that households with one registered disabled person are going to get 3 polo mints a week and those with more than 1 registered disabled person are going to get 3 extra strong mints . 1 member of the household is to put the mint on their tongue whiloe the others stand/sit around warming themselves on the minty vapour . If you are lucky you may get an IS or ESA income related top up of 1 or even 2 mints

    The government today announced that it is changing its emblem from a Union Jack to a CONDOM because it more accurately reflects the government's political stance. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed.

    Hahahaha, funny guys. Has a sad ring of truth though. Remember the time many years ago-I think during the Thatcher years-when one of her puppies siad old people should live in the kitchen & use the cooker for heat? Then he said of disabled people, they could keep warm if they exercised, walked. I do not remember who said it, but this was after a person in a wheelchair had died due to the cold.

    Mine doubled when we moved to this house. I asked why, they said it was because I lived in a better area.
