RESEARCH has confirmed that the number of people blatantly ripping the p*ss is eight times higher than in 2009.
A survey by the Institute for Studies has shown that over the last decade, cases where people must be surely having a f**king laugh are increasing at an exponential rate.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “At first, we thought these results were themselves attempting to p*ss us about. But they are entirely serious.
“Let’s not forget, we’re beginning from a time when bankers, after almost destroying the world economy, decided the time was right to begin awarding themselves bonuses again. So the level of p*ss-taking was already high.
“But since then, perhaps inspired by national politics, it seems that everyone from other drivers to the weather to your boss at work is taking the absolute p*ss pretty much all the time.
“It is, and I don’t say lightly, a total f**king joke. And somebody is going to get a slap.”
