    I had to sit deadpan in absolute silence in the boardroom, and at the end had to finish the joke

    'And he came right on her tits.'

    Completely ruined the joke.
    Did you bill for the minute?

      Just saw breaking news queen calls attack "very wicked". It would have been breaking news if she had called it "a very good thing"

      5 people were killed in an accident on the M6 yesterday, no one besides their friends and family cares
      I think the emergency services who dragged them out of the wreckage and treated the injured in hospital cared. I think the unfortunate people who just missed the crash cared.

      Nope. It's because those events e.g. dying of old age, dying of illness, dropping dead suddenly from undiagnosed heart defects, car crashes, home accidents are expected to happen as part of normal life. People don't expect to be blown up by a bomb.
