22. WE LOVE WATCHING WOMAN IN BALLET OUTFITS, BATHING COSTUMES, BALLROOM DANCING OUTFITS. WE ARE CONFIDENT WITH OUR SEXUALITY AND IT IS FINE TO ADMIRE THE FEMALE FORM (and also fine to criticise - you should have heard us at the royal wedding (you would have thought you were sitting in room filled with michelle pheiffer look-a-likes). did you see that skinny woman in blue with the ugly nose and a canoe on her head? too funny on fashion police on saturday night joan rivers asked "what was that cocaine snorting woman doing wearing her vagina on her head?!!!)

29. HARD ONE FOR ME, DON'T DO CATS (sorry judy, caroline and other cat lovers but i agree)

30. THE ONLY REASON NOT TO JOIN IN IS IF YOU HAVE A VOICE LIKE MINE.
