Well, really must be doing something with my time

Roger Wellington, 46, from Tanworth has been the first man in history to die from Procrastination.

'He was just doing nothing, like he always did' said his wife, Loretta Boot, 64. 'He said he would do it later, but most days when he got home from work he spent the evening putting his toenail clippings into their proper order. Sometimes he would put his fingernails in there as well, just to provide some excitement for tomorrow, or the day after'

Mrs Boot, 59, continued 'I was always telling him he was doing too much, but he never took it on board'

Dr Smith, a local man said: 'Procrastination is like most things. It is beneficial in small doses, but too much of it, like in this case, can prove fatal. Procrastination is like boredom, the silent killer that often claims more lives than falling piano, which really is not that many, to be fair'
