Mum considering ripping ears off to avoid hearing more about f**king Minecraft

A MUM whose son won’t shut the fuck up about Minecraft is considering ripping her own ears off to make it stop.

Donna Sheridan of Bristol has been forced to listen to her five-year-old Josh talk incessantly about mods, redwood and other bollocks since he got the game six months ago.

She said: “This is worse than when he told me what his favourite dinosaur was about 3,000 times. It was a velociraptor, in case you give a shit.

“But now he’s got into Minecraft and won’t shut up about exploring and crafting and many, many other things I do not care about. It all just looks like piles of cardboard boxes to me.

“I’m not sure how much more I can take before I do something mental to make the Minecraft stop. Maybe I can just get some industrial ear muffs and wear those around the house all day.

“I love Josh, I really do. But sometimes even a mother’s deep love can be tested by hearing about how he’s made a sword out of cubes.”

Who should you blame when you've massively failed at life?

HAVE you totally bollocksed your life up? Don’t worry, there’s loads of stuff you can blame for your mistakes! Read our guide and feel a whole lot better about yourself.

Your parents

Parents are a ‘get out of jail free’ card when it comes to failure. You can blame their bad parenting for everything from your inability to boil an egg to your shitty A-level results and therefore your crummy job. They’ll have nothing to come back with because they literally made you in the first place.

The internet

From porn addiction to sending death threats via social media, the internet can be blamed for much of your crap behaviour. Even though you’d have still been a twat if you’d been born in Victorian times, the digital age is a great excuse. It’s not your fault you completely wasted 90 hours this week watching car crashes and shark attacks on YouTube.


Fat? Tired? Sluggish? Irritable? It’s definitely not because you stay up until 3am every night watching Love Island and drinking Baileys from a mug. It’s all the fault of that nasty wheat.


Are foreigners coming over here and stealing all the jobs and attractive sex partners? Or are you just a slacker who can’t be arsed to fill out boring job applications and wash your pants? It’s probably the latter, but it’s easier to blame someone from another country than buy some Daz and clean those ripe-smelling Y-fronts.

Your genes

Genes are a great excuse because they definitely affect you but it’s still unclear exactly how, so no one can prove they’re not responsible for your uselessness. And the great thing is you can sound scientific when you’re explaining how they made you drink all that lager last night and be late for work.
