    We were talking about the horrible case of the nanny who decapitated the poor child and paraded their head in Moscow. I said to them, 'she clearly didn't have her head screwed on'. Not even a snigger???

    Getting old may be compulsory, growing up is not.

    Well they do say drama is the opposite of comedy... Until they reach 20 and forget Shakespeare classes.

    I'm sure they have some sense of humour but they may not appreciate yours. There's a difference.
    Or perhaps they were a bit slow on the uptake.

    Are you 20 or over? I made an OAP club you should join. I wouldn't be laughing either if I was from Grimsby.
