Matt: "Did you know Shakespeare died from eating too much pickled herring?"
Mum: "No he didn't! He died from syphilis."
Matt: "Grandad, did Shakespeare die from eating too much pickled herring or was it syphilis?"
Grandad: "Yeah, probably. It was pretty common."
Mum: "What was common - syphilis or herrings?"
Grandad: "No. Crabs."
Me: "Grandad!!!"

Yeah. Reading that you'd assume that my grandfather was crazy or had alzhiemers or something.

There's nothing wrong with him at all. He's just rude.

    Good. Keep up the commenting.

    It makes me feel loved when people comment. It's how I know people actually read this thing and that I'm not just wasting my time writting it!

    By the way, if you select "Other" instead of "Anonymous", you can leave your name without getting an account!
