image for The meaning of 'Happiness'?
No Diddy Men were harmed in this Spoof article

'Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess,
I thank the Lord that I've been blessed,
With more than my share of happiness'.

Many will recognise these lyrics as the chorus to the 1964 hit 'Happiness', made famous by the buck-toothed, tickling-stick toting comedian Kenneth Arthur (Ken) Dodd OBE.

However, following in the wake of recent Police investigations into the private lives and habits of celebrities, rumours have surfaced that these lyrics might have more sinister connotations. Some have argued that the word 'Happiness' may well refer to the male appendage!

Furthermore, it has been questioned whether pursuing small persons (the Diddy Men)and waving a tickling stick is entirely appropriate behaviour, or again whether this is a thinly disguised reference to rather more unsavoury behaviour.

Det.Sgt P.D Phyle of Knotty Ash confirmed that initial enquiries had discovered nothing untoward.

More significantly, Ms. Cilla Black, fellow ageing, buck-toothed Liverpudlian celebrity has issued a statement in support of Mr Dodd.

In the meantime Police are examining the lyrics of his other hit songs including: 'Once in every Lifetime', 'More than Love', 'Hold my Hand' and 'Take it Like a Diddy Man'
