@Minesapint 

"... and sick to death of people who have nothing better to do than worry about whether something that nobody should really care less about is upsetting somebody else who should have something better to do"

Not sure what to make of that, are you saying that we should not complain or comment unless it affects us directly. If so, where's the fun in that? 

For a start, poor old Piers Morgan would not have a television show in the morning. Tongue

As for being stereotypically male, old(ish), grumpy, un-politically correct - we could be twins... but there's a lot of us!

It might be safer to say 'they're' perfectly correct.  (before a certain someone jumps up and calls you a bigot)  Wink

PS @Minesapint  no comments were aimed at you!

I did say "male" etc.

(Are we still allowed to say that? Cheesy)

As for the rest. Exactly that!

@Minesapint I know you said 'male' - yes, we are still allowed to say it - I think.

That's why I 'winked'.Wink

@Minesapint Ah, but thinking proves you've still got a working brain, even if it hasn't been modified by the thought police.Smiley

I'll make sure I include 'wink' in (brackets) next time.Grin

I just hope them there thought police are using an all inclusive, and non-sterotypical, mascot.
