Since Mark has got you nicely warmed up with some comedy gold, I’m going to attempt to batter you into submission with some of my favourite moments of mirth. To merry hell with being festive, I’m all too aware that a lot of people want to kill themselves at this time of year. So my only advice is don’t do it.
