People with more than two kids love squalor

PEOPLE who have three or more children do so because they enjoy living in squalid and disgusting conditions, it has emerged.

Psychiatrist Dr Helen Archer said: “Those with large families find the idea of living in revoltingly dirty and chaotic homes, with jam and faeces coating the walls, perversely appealing.

“Anyone can have one child. People are curious, they make mistakes, there’s nothing on the telly. 

“To have a second seems insane but there’s method in the madness; after a hellish couple of years, the big one spends most of its time torturing the little one and the parents get some respite. 

“A third child, however, demonstrates a wilful refusal to face reality and an active pursuit of squalor that sane people find incomprehensible.

“And a fourth puts the parents at a level of psychopathology similar to the Joker, who just wants to watch the world burn.”

Virgo (23 AUG-22 SEP)
You’re really excited to see how Spider Man fits in to the Marvel universe and whether that weird dangly thing between your legs has a second function other than urination.

Scorpio (24 OCT-21 NOV)
Rather than inviting your neighbour to your party on Saturday, why not stamp on the floor and loudly refer to ‘that prick downstairs’ until they come up?

Sagittarius (22 NOV-21 DEC)
The results come back on Friday from the “Does anybody care about your opinion on Better Call Saul?” laboratory. It’s not good news.

Capricorn (22 DEC-19 JAN)
This horoscope has hidden meanings you are too stupid to understand.
