Computer says cheer up

Many phrases within the English Language are said to be re-thought due to the Credit Crunch.

The saying 'You can't afford to miss this' when in reference to Television or a bargain product will become 'You can probably live very well without this'.

Adverts talking about Debt Consolidation will also be banned, as many within society feel that they are taking the piss.

A Ms C Vorderman said: 'In these times of tightened belts and inflated overheads many adverts will be replaced simply with pictures of things said to cheer people up. Pictures of pets, chocolate and Terry Wogan will be shown on a loop. Why have hours of expensive TV when a simple smiling photo of Tezza will cheer more people up?'

Make Ben Macnair's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
