I got some Census rubbish through the post today. At first I was tempted to chuck it into the ever-growing pile of junk mail, until I learnt of the threat of legal action if I didn’t complete it and send it back to Dave (Mr. Cameron to those who don’t know him).

If I wasn’t at risk of being sent to prison for fraud and raped in the showers, I would certainly complete the form with a few joke responses.

Question 16 – “What is your ethnic group?”
This is wrong for a start. There is a section to class yourself as a gypsy, but only if you’re white. What if I was Chinese but fancied living in a caravan? There’s no option for that! RACISTS!

Question 19 – “How well can you speak English?”
This is an interesting one, with possible answers ranging from “Very well” to “Not at all”. If you couldn’t speak English at all, chances are you wouldn’t be able to read and therefore complete the marketing scam.

It is tempting to simply write underneath
“ i cant reed and i cant rite but that dont relly mater. cos i come from the west cuntree and i can drive a tracor”

Question 20 – “What is your religion?”
We’ve been there and done that with all the sci-fi geeks putting “Jedi Knight”. God, I hate them. I may put my religion down as “Dark Lord” or whoever it is that kills Jedi’s

The funniest one of all is ‘H9’  “How many rooms are available for use only by this household?”
I love the fact the survey actually tells you that cupboards do NOT count as rooms! Although try telling that to Harry Potter.

Finally, and I know this has been covered on thousands of websites, including Facebook, but what the hell is Question 17 all about? If anyone knows or has any suggestions of what I should do with please let me know.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
