Of course the best thing to do would be stop using wet wipes but this isn’t easy, mainly because it will mean not having children!

If that makes no difference, then that’s probably the best news ever!

o Is there anything worse for people who don’t like vegetables than actually having to eat the pumpkin you bought to celebrate Halloween with, before it goes off?

I’ve been sweating for the past 10 days wondering how the hell I’m going to eat all of mine?

Pumpkin pie anyone?

o Researchers in America have found that procrastination is a genetically inherited trait.

I assume it’s not passed down from father to son though, because it’s the procrastination gene.

So what makes us so unquestioning about mayonnaise and salad cream?

I say let’s start being a bit more suspicious about them. They could be up to something!
