#1 What are they feeding hens these days that makes eggshells break into lots of little bits rather than break into two clean halves like they used to do?

#2 D’you think the guy who does the meerkat voiceover on the Compare The Market adverts talks like that at home to his wife just to make her laugh? “Dhaaaling, you create cuppa for Aleksandr?”

#3 Why did they take the price off postage stamps?

#4 What is it about paper party hats from Christmas crackers (which, really, are more bands of wafer thin paper than actual hats) that magically make your head roasting hot within minutes of wearing them?

#5 How come nail polish – a polish specifically designed for the purpose of coating nails – always smudges within half an hour of application or chips within hours, regardless of brand or price? 

#6 Is it just me or does Labrinth sounds a little like John Legend in his new song with Emeli Sandé?

#7 How can it be possible for shirt manufacturers to tell simply from a man’s collar size that a shirt will also fit him around the shoulders, arms, chest and stomach?

#8 Who spends £90 on a cushion?

#9 Does anyone else wake up occasionally with music playing full blast in their head? This week it’s been Ellie Goulding’s ‘Anything Could Happen’ – twice!

#10 Can it really be too cold for snow though… really?
