Corin couldn’t shout quite as loud as he usually does last night at Brass Monkey Leith, because he had cracked a rib.

“How did you crack a rib?”, I asked

“By coughing.” he replied.

Bloody hell. The younger generation are so weak.

You cough and you break a rib. Someone insults your beliefs or your trousers and you cry. You cry so hard that the only thing that can save you is a pumpkin spice latte.

Weakness everywhere. Everyone younger than me is weak*.

Yep, you’ve guessed it – I’ve decided to go full gammon. Why try to hide my contempt/jealousy for the younger generations?

The good news is that I’ve only just begun my descent into foamy-mouthed elder madness. It’ll take a few years to properly play out, so the quizzes are still functional for now. Come to the pub!

Here’s tonight’s line up of trivia fun:

*To be fair to Corin – he counteracted my accusations of weakness by suggesting that it was a case of strong muscles rather than weak ribs. Fair point, possibly.

Music Round Clue for Safari Lounge Tonight:

This is JANET JACKSON and her Erik Satie cover. It’s in the music round at Safari Lounge tonight. I’m into the Satie bit, but she loses me when she starts going on about how she hopes her new lover has “a funky car”. Good grief.
