  1. SOB – I’m a FAILURE LMFAO 😀


  2. Always nice to kick off the morning with a creative chuckle from you, Seumas.


  3. Best test ever! Sir, any day started with your humor is a great day indeed. I shall sneak my notebook in under my things for today’s meetings at work and practice joined up letters when I think no one’s looking to increase my score! Hope you have a stress free Friday and am sending a virtual box of chocolates with a virtual lockpick to you for Valentine’s Day so you can break away from the minders and sneak off to the pub…or whatever else tickles your fancy….


  4. Brilliant. Loved this.
