I have a little quiz for yiz all.
I saw a wee headline in the paper yesterday –
Now there are a couple of points to bear in mind here.
Firstly the "researchers" seem adamant that there is a connection.
Secondly, remember that the ban applies only to the workplace such as pubs and offices.
So on that basis which of the following is true?
A. All children are in the habit of nipping in for a quick pint on the way home from kindergarten.
B. All children have office and factory jobs outside school hours.
C. Children are no longer allowed to smoke in class in primary school.
D. Smoking parents now have to drink at home and the extra smoke is curing the asthma.
E. The "researchers" are once more talking through their arses and are saying anything for a quick headline.
Now bearing in mind that E can't be the answer, as we all know that "researchers" know better than us and are as honest as the day is long, and that A, B, and C are unlikely, then I can only think that D is the right answer.
But then who am I to suggest such a thing?
Which do you think is the right answer?
