OK. Let's start a movement. A little bird told me (it was on page 17 of the Times) that Big Willy (it's what she calls him apparently) and that commoner, millionaire's daughter Kate Middleton have plighted their troth. Now that's something many of us guys will be wanting to avoid so as soon as we get the date let's set up a shed load of men's events that are not the wedding. Don't get me wrong. I'm not against marriage. Just against marriage with a massive media spotlight and the hype. So shall we do something else? I've already dreamed up the best men's Bible study group ever modelled on Richard Bacon's beer and pizza evenings. Let's brainstorm.
By the way it was also on pages 1-16 of the Times, which is why I read the Guardian.
We might have to agree to watch the actual wedding to keep our partners company. I've just thought of another thing we can do; a training course in things-to-say-during-a-royal-wedding that make us sound interested and knowledgeable. James May may be able to help in his man's lab.
This could run and run.
