Uncle Ernie

Uncle Ernie returns with a devastating critique of modern life

What is this obsession with the horseless carriage?

Cappuccino? Macchiato? Flat White? Soy? Trim? Why can’t I just get a cup of Nescafe with a bit of milk?

What is it with women these days?

If global warming is real, why do I still get cold in the winter?

Isn’t it time we went back to the gold standard?

Where did I leave my false teeth?

Would we be a better and more prosperous nation if we were all made to eat potatoes with every meal?

Woman drivers?

Remember back in the day when “gay” meant happy?

When the hell are you going to get off my damn lawn?
