After observing over 4000 men for a period of six years it has been established that men who hang to the left are more likely to gamble on the national lotto than men who hang to the right.
The findings came as quite a surprise; no one had any idea the way men dress would affect how they play the lotto.
A spokesman for the lotto told our correspondent in Dungeness that it's all to do with balls and the way they drop. "All the lotto balls are the same, no one ball is any different from the next, I did hear once that two of the balls got stuck as they dropped but that was a one off and we can assure our customers that it will never happen again".
It was also noted that footballers who hang to the right take better penalties than those who hang to the left, it seems the left hangers tend to shoot over the post where as right hangers scuff the sod before shooting.
Oddly world leaders tend to hang to the right; Hitler only had one ball which was only slightly larger than Himmler's.
Edward Heath (1916-2005) who knew Margaret Thatcher very well once said she had no balls at all, he was a very clever man who also sailed boats and conducted large orchestras.
No one was ever able to confirm one way or the other which way Heath hung.
