Oh, Gary, what are you talking about.

Gary Johnson, 48-year-old consumer of popular culture, has wasted 45 minutes of his life watching a bloopers and out-takes edition of 'Pointless'.

Complaining to wife, Lorraine, he grumbled: 'That's forty-five minutes I won't get back. It was just some random bods, whose back-stories we didn't get to learn about, and Richard and Alexander laughing at their own jokes. Still, it could have been worse. I was watching 'Have I Got News For You' yesterday. Honestly, I have had funnier Zoom meetings, lately. I know he doesn't look the type, but Dave in Accounts is so funny when he wants to be.'

'If you say so,' said Lorraine, her eyebrows touching the ceiling.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
