So What's For The Main Course Then?
An online health site is running a list of the Top Ten Healthy Takeaways for men this morning, it's part of a series that began with Top Ten Child Friendly Weapons of Mass Destruction and will probably end with Top Ten Most Scenic Places to Commit Suicide. It is in all seriousness a laudable attempt to show that you can still enjoy five pints of lager on a Saturday night and have a guilt free takeaway on the way home.
The problem is that looking at some of the recommendations I can only assume the list was actually aimed at National Hunt jockeys or male performers at Sadlers Wells. Take this helpful tip on the humble pizza:
