December in Manchester is impossible without a cosy jumper and a big, warm coat. Obviously, as a Scotsman I CAN handle the cold (by putting on a cosy jumper and a big, warm coat) but I was still stunned on the bus from work yesterday, to see three separate people walking about in SHORTS.


I don’t keep up with the “macho-and-tough” trends. Is this The Thing now? How exactly does hypothermia impress the lay-deez? Granted, you might have some Nurses in your immediate future but i’ll bet all the money in my pocket their thoughts will contain the phrase “you twat” at regular intervals.
