Check out our ludicrous lists, designed to give you a laugh and make the world a better place.


Maureen from Burnley sent in, er, seven things she'd like to see in Room 101...

1. People who end each sentence in a questioning manner.

2. Any man (over 40) with a pony tail.

3. Overweight people showing their tummies.

4. Anyone using "literally" when not needed (very bad grammar in general).

5. Tabloids substituting English terminology for Americanisms (ie. Cops - police).

6. Old peoples' total disregard for anyone other than themselves yet call any younger generation (totally ignorant).

My pet hates are:

2) People who just stop in the middle of the pavement, causing you to bump into them.

3) Ignorant shop assistants who carry on talking to their mates while they are supposed to be serving you.

4) People who talk loudly on their mobile phones on public transport.

5) Call centres

6) Chavs
