The Grumpy post

Sick today with "Man-'Flu" or it could be pneumonia, definately can't be a common cold... thus Grumpy and a little bored!

I decided to start a post for people to whinge about insubstantial or inanimate things.

I shall start with the fact that the light in ZH today is super grey and not of the quality I would expect from CH! A very lacklustre performance...

Re: The Grumpy post

Better check that it's not bird flu or triple pneumonia, both of which seem to be more prevalent in men (for some reason)

Mentioning Man Flu and then whinging about insubstantial things is a bit of a contradiction. Everyone knows that Man Flu is one of the worst diseases known: certainly not insubstantial!

I'm confused by the "".

Man Flu is, as you rightly point out, no laughing matter.

Re: The Grumpy post

My whinge for the day is about "butthole air travelers".

At airport security: Yes, you need to take your jacket off, now take off your belt, lose the gallon of water/Coca Cola/other liquids in your carry on baggage, leave the Kalashnikov at home in your wardrobe and get a freakin' life muppet. 9-11 was almost 10 years ago and you still don't know how to board a friggin' airplane....?

Makes my blood boil. Better now - thanks, innit.

I agree, be prepared for the usual interferance from the bottom inpsectors at security, it is not difficult to put your laptop in an easy to access place, and take your jacket off before getting to the conveyor...

Re: The Grumpy post

Phew, you posted not long ago, when I first saw this post and you had man flu, the first thing I did was get the phone and, even in my complete inability to speak French, phone the authorities and get some serious medical help to you!

Man flu is one of the worst diseases know in the world, there is no known cure, it's resistant to all know forms of medicine, although I'm firm believer in a hot toddy for man flu, as it has all the manly ingredients to combat it.

Take it easy and I hope you beat this killer disease soon.

LOL..you have to be truly ill to withstand an entire week in bed watching "Top Gear". Mind, I've love it for years, but I don't thin even a man flu could force me to watch it even for a week.
