    “Their/They” can be plural or singular. It’s especially useful if that person referred to is an abstract, such as in jokes, or if their gender doesn’t matter in the statement (there it is again!)
    I’m sure if you look at the word in a dictionary it lists both plural and singular definitions. For example:
    “A parent should play with their child”
    “The teacher is very mean to their students”
    “A person may enlist only if they are over 18.”
    Those are singular uses and genderless.
    Gendered pronouns only really matter where gender matters and, most of the time, it doesn’t really. The joke isn’t about infidelity on the part of a husband or wife, it’s a silly bit of wordplay and doesn’t need to be gendered for no reason. Now the old fashioned version of that joke would be me making cracks about my unfaithful wife. It doesn’t make it any less funny to alter the language and make it less heteronormative. Still grammatically correct too. :biggrin:

    I will never donate blood again. Too many silly questions.
    What's your name?
    Where are you from?
    Where did you get it?
    Why is it in a bucket?

    Can’t remember where I posted the thing about my colleagues and me doing a virtual marathon this last weekend to raise funds for work into saving south African rhinos (and can’t be arsed to go looking for it amongst all the posts!) but I’d like to thank those who donated and report that our team of 11 across 9 countries ran/walked/cycled/crawled a total of 63km on just over 7 hours, spurred on by our team leader, Jackie, in Canada, who was up at 3.30am her time to get us started and ran her 5km leg at 2pm her time.
    We raised over £2000 which converts to nearly 25,000 South African rand - which is a huge amount for the charity!!
    Thanks a million!!

    Oh FFS! I love watching Richard Osman’s house of games.... quickly finished some work only to switch on and see that dirty site b’stard James on there! Sponging more money of the Beeb.

    ah well... I can at least scream at the televisions and remind the wife that I once scored the winning goal against him in a cup replay after he dropped a cross.

    With the return of fans to PL matches why not give the lucky 4000 Saints fans a sex doll each to help fill the empty stands at St Mary's.
    During the match the commentators can genuinely say:
    "I have never heard so much moaning".

    Sex with women is like my bank account, I put it in, lose interest and take it out again.

    Well I have to say I’m impressed with Truespeed, my ISP. Yesterday they announced that speed upgrade packages would be available, with options of 350, 500, or 900 MBS. That’s guaranteed minimum speeds, not like BT and others’ “if you’re lucky” figures. So I phoned up, got straight through, and went for 500 MBS for an extra £12 a month, for almost double the speed. Should be happening almost immediately, so I’ll wait with bated breath!
