I am a grumpy and cynical old git, and proud to be so. I have a sense of humour which varies from being un-PC, ironic, sarcastic and dry to occasionally downright sick. I once thought I was mellowing with age but I now think I'm probably getting worse. If there's a tone that needs lowering, I'm your man.
I had to turn off "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" (R4) at lunchtime, since Humphrey Lyttleton's dry presentation has me in stitches, and having slipped and fallen down a couple of concrete steps at my daughter's 50th birthday party last week and cracked a couple of ribs, I really cannot afford to laugh (or cough, or sneeze), it's too painful. So, at the moment, I'm "enjoying" being a miserable old git.

I understand the joke, but I just don't find it funny enough to laugh or even smile at. I'm not a grumpy old man, but if I kept hearing jokes like this then I soon should be.
