This is Gobshite

Question – when is a poll not a poll ?

Answer – when not a single person is asked to express an opinion !

will someone please explain to the editor of the Metro, the meaning of the word ‘poll’ !

I Hate Mondays and . . .

by duncanr

mondaysThey could have saved a lot of time, energy and money if they had just asked me but instead they chose to do it the hard way – polling 340,000 people, and asking them to ‘rate’ how they felt about the different days of the week. They were looking to see if people really did hate Monday as much as is claimed. And indeed, their results showed that compared to Saturday and Sunday, folk really didn’t like Monday much at all.

UK Men not ‘fussy’

by duncanr

A recent Poll sampling men from several European countries with regard to the attributes they look for in a women found that UK men were the least demanding.

Unlike other nationalities, the majority of UK men sampled (83%) didn’t care if the woman was unemployed.

Sixty-six percent also couldn’t care less if the woman could cook or not.

While 52% would prefer if the woman had a pretty face, general conclusion would seem to be that – as long as she is breathing – UK men will take what they can get !!!
