Ambulance chasers I could understand.

Well you know the expression

"You'll do yourself an injury"


Chafing

Carpal Tunnel

Eye strain

Slipping on a wet floor

I'm now getting retirement plans from Fisher Investments UK. And not just on this site either.

Is somebody trying to tell me something? I'm not even quite 45!

(Mind you, right now I'd bloody love to retire... perhaps they're reading my mind?)

I keep getting stuff about NHS services for pregnant women. When they pop up under headings with politicians' names they're good for a quick snigger.

Haven't succeeded in copying it properly, but I've just had a particularly serendipitous one showing the Littledick heading in conjunction with a retirement ad. If only ...

Morgan Computers : Cheapo cheapo gizmos.
