Happy News, I Shit You Not!

Positive news day, eh.

Well I wasn't too confident at finding anything at all in the papers today, that was going to turn a Grumpy Old Twat into a Positive Old Twat but, fuck me, I couldn't have found anything better.

Red wine is EVEN better for you than originally thought!

Results of a new study by scientists have found further proof of a long and healthy life can be obtained by uncorking a bottle of your favourite vin rouge.

Fucking Brilliant!

The article in today's Daily Express goes on to say . . .

"Researchers have discovered that a key ingredient already known to be good for the heart and fighting cancer can also prevent inflammation, a chief cause of many chronic illnesses.
Now a new study has found the antioxidant resveratrol blocks two key proteins to stop inflammation which plays a major role in arthritis, diabetes, and irritable bowel syndrome."

Now for someone who is not averse to consuming industrial quantities of the red stuff, this is yet another positive reason I can offer up to Pigsy next time she questions my motives for over indulgence.

Good times!

Can't wait for 'the bar' to open tonight at 6pm.
Purely medicinal of course.

Cheers!

Positive news: You can have more digs at Hattie now she's in charge. Fair's fair, she likes having dig at everyone else.

And she wanted to be on top.

A winner!

This is a bitter blow to those of us who don't like wine. A bottle of IPA and an Irish Whiskey is my tipple, so scientists, please find something positively healthy with these beverages.

Thanks GOT. Made my day. I'm glad I keep an eye on you. Need to see full report in case it claims to help "erections". Toodle pip.

subrosa said...

Lexander, don't bother reading the full report. I'm told on good authority it doesn't, but that could well be just an excuse - after all the authority is OLD.

You beat me to it GOT!Ah well, back to the research.

Red wine, like White, is only any good for sprinkling on ones chips. One can also make use of its acidic qualities in erasing graffiti and shit smears on the pavement........

As for actually drinking it I'd rather suffer industrial strenght bog cleaner than end up with a huge red carbuncle stuck in the middle of my face like an inflamed bell end or hobbling around with grape induced gout............

Gigits said...

I bet the bastards mean one glass of red wine a day. Not 3 bottles!

GOT: can you arrange a "Vicious Nihilism Day" for next week? It would be an antidote to all this positivity...

xoggoth said...

Had similar good news last week. As a kid I loved cheese and assumed as a result I was prime stroke/heart attack material. But apparently lots of dairy as a kid is good!

All I need now is to find out that vodka is good for you. And sniffing asbestos.

Dazed and Confused said...

I just wish to exclaim on this fine Tuesday morning....

FUCK! - FUCK! - FUCK! - FUCK!

That's it - Feel better already.

G.O.T. said...

Thank you all for your comments,
positive or otherwise ;-)

Dazed, I'm the fuck with you and Gigits, I think everyday will have to be Vicious Nihilism Day just to make sure that we get the point across ;-)

Oh, and Gordon, fuck the fucking fuck off and don't come back!

Robin B'stard MP said...

I think Gordon Brown is a much maligned individual. Just wait until October when that cock gobbling spunk quaffing bastard Mandleson takes over, we'll need more than industrial quantities of Red wine to escape his shit storm heterophobic bollocks...........

"Vicious Nihilism Day" for next week?
As long as it isn't Monday, for preference. I'm hoping for a parade of what's good in western art and entertainment first.
Shill, shill.
The art of freedom

"All I need now is to find out that vodka is good for you." t surely is, but its consumption in quantity does tend to make the people around one stupid and humourless, I find.

Wasn't the Duke of Clarence drowned in Malmsey? It might be a kindness, in some ways. Barrel of heavy, anyone?
