Back in my footballing days when I had tonsillitis, I hacked off my tonsil with a Swiss army knife, spat it out over the boundary and just kept on playing.
Kids of today are so wasteful. We chewed 'em up and swallowed 'em. No point wasting such valuable protein.

M'kay, showing my age here.

Don't do a google search on Riley Reid from the office folks!
I've only seen the UK version, and I don't recall seeing her with Gervais and the rest of the gang. She must've been in the US show...



Edit: Ok never mind, probably a good thing Gervais never starred in anything with her. And I'll second the suggestion to not search on Google, at least not while at work...

So Mum was right about playing in the rain all along...
I umpired in sleet and hail 2 years ago ended up with Bronchitis and the other umpire ended up with his liver/kidney shutting down because it was simply too cold

I think it is definitely real problem

Not sure if youre being serious or not, but Glandular is only acquired through the sharing of saliva. Usually young blokes get it from kissing too many girls.

Wait, so is it tonsilitis or glandular fever? I thought the reports said it was tonsilitis, has the diagnosis changed since the last update?
