It has been a very depressing week so far. We saw the awful chemical attacks in Syria, and on the home front we have had footballing legend Ray Wilkins dying at the early age of 61. In such depressing times, it is often nice to come across and amusing, stupid story, devoid of any seriousness or subtext. That is why this story about Debenhams selling a table lamp of a gorilla appearing to make the ‘wanker sign’ put a smile on my face.
OK, I will admit it, I’m a man. Therefore I don’t always understand the ‘female experience’. I look at the world and I hear from social media that women find life so hard, but then see that Angela Merkel runs Germany, Hillary Clinton is about to become President, and other women are doing well.
Last night, I was sat with my Mrs flitting round the TV, looking for something that wasn’t total rubbish. With over 1000 channels, you would have thought that would be an easier job. I stumbled on a show called 10,000BC. The premise of the programme was that 20 people would be chucked into some Bulgarian forest, and told to live like they would have done in the prehistoric ages for a couple of months. It actually sounded quite interesting.
