At first they came for the smokers but I did not speak out as I did not smoke. Then they came for the binge drinkers but I said nothing as I did not binge. Now they have an obesity strategy.
I read somewhere on the Interwebs that David Cameron has man-boobs.
Is it proof of the theory of creative evolution?

FT journalist Alan Beattie proposes this iron law of journalism:If there's a question mark in the headline the answer is either (tabloid) "no" or (broadsheet) "who cares?"Daily Mail: "Have The Police Gone Stark Staring Mad?" (No.) And (I think) The Times: "Do women prefer Vladimir Putin's body to Jack Nicholson's?" (Who cares?)For women's magazines, the answer is: "Dunno, and your stupid quizisn't going to tell me."(In response to, eg, Could You Be Co-Dependent? Are You Your OwnBest Friend? Is Your Cellulite Abnormal?)For men's magazines, the answer is: "Dunno, but I'm sure you're aboutto tell me."(In response to, eg, Is The Nokia N8 The Hottest Phone of 2008? Is'Four Lions' Violent Enough? Are You Britain's Best-Dressed Man?).Having said this I do kind of care about breast measurements - if only their (and my) other measurements weren't increasing at the same rate....
