Please Don't Hug Me 8

Growing old and they don't like it

25 September 2010

Expensive Sandwiches, Vietnamese Banana Technique, Refereeing, Tipping, Micky’s Torso, Widow

Please Don't Hug Me is written and produced by TV writer, comedian, Sabotage Times columnist, sometime football journalist and all too often temporary office worker, Daniel Ruiz Tizon. He is joined every week by old school friend and 1980s school sprint champion Micky Boyd, who still believes in him. Each blames the other for the 13-year break in their friendship from 1990 to 2003.

This week, Daniel frets that he will have to return the favour and buy a colleague a pricey sandwich before his work contract runs out; Micky is the world's most biased referee; we take our latest tour of Micky's Body Beautiful, this week's excursion featuring his burly 1970s torso; and in the event of their deaths, the guys wonder how long their widows would wait before hooking up with new men.
