Though I do take objection to your characterizing my humour as belonging to a sell-by age bracket ("the humour just about misses our age bracket", sez FCD).

3. Optional: Display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' icon. I chose not to. You'll find at the original post.
Oh all right, all right, here's a bonus seventh:
