BRITAIN’S dicks have used the ‘supermoon’ to excuse their awful personalities.
Engineer Wayne Hayes said: When my neighbour caught me shitting in his garden last night I just pointed at the sky and gave him a ‘what can you do?’ shrug.
The irony was that such a bright moon meant he could see exactly what kind of mess I was leaving his lawn in.
“It was three months ago that his car partially blocked my drive but it’s been well worth the wait.
There’s another one due in September of next year so let’s wait and see whether he bothers sending a Christmas card.
The phenomenon is known by astronomers as a Perigee moon, named after Perigus, the Greek god of being intolerable.
In ancient times it was marked by a Perigean festival, where villagers would come together to interrupt each other’s conversations, spill each other’s tankards of mead and talk loudly about how much their hovel had gone up in value.
Yesterday’s supermoon will be followed by the Perseid meteor shower on Tuesday, which many will use as an excuse for forgetting to feed their pets.
