THE discovery of a gene that could cause obesity has caused lazy bastards to demand a DNA-based excuse.
Idle person Julian Cook said: “If overweight people have a genetic get-out clause, lazy people should have one too.
“Surely there must be a scientific reason why I am so fascinated by the sofa and Sky+.”
However Professor Henry Brubaker said: “It’s possible that laziness evolved as a survival strategy, because those who stayed in the cave looking at the paintings were less likely to be killed by bears.
“But there aren’t any bears now, so get off your fat arse.”
