7 Reasons You Shouldn’t Use The Washing Machine

7 Reasons You Shouldn’t Use The Washing Machine

1.  Odd socks. Wearing odd socks is not really the done thing. It looks strange and makes people avoid you. The problem is that it’s really not your fault.

Yesterday, there was a general election. You may have noticed. The results came in over night. I was there. Throughout. This is how I did it. 10:00pm. So we have an Exit Poll – which it turns out is very different from an exit pole. It’s going to be Hung Parliament time. I can hardly contain myself. So I don’t and have a biscuit.
