Local man Dave Taylor has spent the best part of the last 10 years searching for the answer to all of life's problems without success - until he eventually discovered it tucked neatly between the buttocks of his beloved dog, Mavis.
The jolly 46-year-old taxi driver from Leeds is keeping his find close to his chest, and has refused so far to share the details of what the answer really is.
"I'm just enjoying my good fortune, I am", he said, "All life's little problems have melted away and it's all thanks to a dogs arse. Funny that, eh?"
No longer does Dave get household bills in the mail. Jehovah's Witnesses no longer call to his house and knock on the door while he's trying to watch the 'pervy' channels on the telly. His wife has developed massive breasts and her face no longer looks like a dried piece of shit. He can now also fit into those denim jeans he got for Christmas 5 years ago.
There has been a media frenzy over not only what the answer is, but how it managed to get lodged in his dogs anus, with some suggesting that it could have been put there by another dog or an alien race or something.
