The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Growing Old [Dis]Gracefully

We all live lives with a pressure to conform … whether it is interms of our choice in music, hairstyle, fashion, looks … it gets to us in some way or other.

However when you get older … a time where you are supposedly a little bit wiser … you try and be a bit less obviously influenced by what society is pushing – and focus on what makes you feel good, regardless of outside opinion.

Well, that’s the theory anyway … in practice it doesn’t always work that way, as this wonderful example of ‘mutton-dressed-as-mutton’ [or Salman Rushdie in uber-disguise] demonstrates.

There was a line in one of the first brilliant Adrian Mole books, where he describes old women’s breasts like “semi-deflated balloons” … ironically on this woman that’s exactly what they are!

What with the fatman in budgie-smugglers and the thin woman in eurgh, I think this could be one of the best ad’s for euthanasia going.

Oooooh the devil lives inside you doesn’t it.

Comment by Rob

yeah. sometimes. i asked my mum if she ever knew andy, to see where itmight come from. she denied all knowledge. it must just be learned behaviour…

Comment by lauren

Comment by andy@cynic

The devil doesn’t live inside you Andy – you are the fucking horn-head aren’t you!

Comment by andy@cynic

What the fuck is that ‘Hahaha’ bollocks? Are you pissed again???

Lauren, I think you should be more worried that your Mum is another ex-wife or Mr Marry-a-lot. On the brightside, you might be able to get a heap of cash out of him.

Comment by Rob

too fucking right i am. living the dream, living the dream.

Comment by andy@cynic

i’m actually more worried about the fact that i’ve stupidly made my mum the topic of conversation here… this could get dangerous..

Comment by lauren

I thought so … why else would start repeating your sentences?

PLUS your spelling is far better and in your ‘Haha’ rubbish, you even used capital letters.

Now go to bed, big day tomorrow.

Comment by Rob

New Rule [only rule] … Mum’s are free from ridicule or innuendo!

That should help protect your Mum Lauren – well it would if anyone actually listened to a word I say, ha!

Comment by Rob

Comment by Marcus

Which bit? The old bird, the young bird, the young birds Mum or the drunken slob in Rio?

Comment by Rob

all of it.

Comment by Marcus

It must be getting close to dinosaurs-do advertising-at-cannes time of year.

Time to roll out the wrinklies, champers, yachts and air/arse kissers.

Comment by Charles Frith

I know they say 40 is the new 30, but this is getting ridiculous!

How are you Charles? Well I hope …

Comment by Rob

and apparently mutton is the new lamb..

Comment by lauren

Maybe she’s born with it…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Born with a sausage or are you doing a Maybaline thing?

Comment by Robert

neither mutton nor lamb have a chance against the might that is sausage

Comment by Marcus

The latter!

That is truly a shocking site. But then again, the amount of hideously ugly women that dress like that are no worse than her.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Commenting on Sheffield ladies are you Rob?

Comment by Robert

There are ugly women who think they are attractive everywhere in the world.

Just like there are ugly blokes who think they are gods gift…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

And back to Andy … hahahahaha!
