If you have man-flu how come you were up at all? You are letting us all down. Retire to bed this instant and demand the papers, a drink, no not that one,your pillows plumped, a good book, the TV moved into your bedroom etc etc. You simply haven't got the faintest idea about how to have man- flu.

I feel for you John as I just went through it and having a tooth ake at the same time didn`t help
At least you haven't got that Norovirus , you wouldn't have had time to post then!
Oh no, not man flu :eek:


There's nothing quite as nasty or serious as the dreaded 'Man Flu'. At least 2 weeks off work to rest and convalesce, plus plenty of pampering from SWMBO and 'get well soon'.

That's better fellas - I can use some of this to good effect :thumb:.
Perhaps 212 people were awaiting an explanation of who Bah-Man Flu is. Did Christopher Lee play him?

Anyway, sorry to hear of your impending demise, why do these things always strike at the start of the weekend?

Man Flu – The Facts…

1. Man-Flu is more painful than childbirth.
This is an irrefutable scientific fact*.

*(Based on a survey of over 100,000 men.)

2. Man-Flu is not ‘just a cold’. It is a condition so severe that the germs from a single Man-Flu sneeze could wipe out entire tribes of people living in the rainforest. And probably loads of monkeys too.
3. Women do not contract Man-Flu. At worst they suffer from what is
medically recognised as a ‘Mild Girly Sniffle’ – which, if a man caught, he would still be able to run, throw a ball, tear the phone book in half and compete in all other kinds of manly activities.
4. Men do not ‘moan’ when they have Man-Flu. They emit involuntary groans of agony that are entirely in proportion to the unbearable pain they are in.

5. Full recovery from Man-Flu will take place much quicker if their simple
requests for care, sympathy and regular cups of tea are met. Is that really so much to ask? Florence Nightingale would have done it.
6. More men die each year from MFN (Man-Flu Neglect) than lots and lots of other things. (Like rabbit attacks or choking on toast).
7. Men suffering from Man-Flu want nothing more than to get out of bed and go to work, but they are too selfless to risk spreading this awful condition amongst their friends and colleagues. In this sense, they are the greatest heroes this country has ever known.
8. In 1982 scientists managed to simulate the agonising symptoms of full
blown Man-Flu in a female chimp. She became so ill that her head literally fell off.
9. Man-Flu germs are more powerful than He-Man, The Thundercats and The A-Team combined. They are too strong for weak, nasty tasting ‘lady
medicines’ like Lemsip, so don’t bother trying to force them on a victim of
10. While it may seem like a Man-Flu sufferer is just lying around enjoying
‘Diagnosis Murder’ it is a commonly recognised medical fact that the exact
pitch and frequency of **** Van Dyke’s voice has remarkable soothing
Every minute in this country one man is struck down by Man-Flu.
Women, all we ask is that each of you offers them a cup of tea, some kind words and your undivided attention and care. Then maybe, just maybe, we’ll beat this monstrous disease together.​
I'm liking the effort you've put into yout reply Paul.

Consider it a fitting tribute John to an esteemed member of the community, should you not pull through.

I recommed a high-calory vitamin-rich diet full of fruit and a nip of brandy- conveniently available in six packs in the form of luxury mince pies.
John, insist on balm tissues. They are worth it. Using lip balm on your nose afterwards doesn't work (and applying it in public will make you look as if you're confused, believe me ;)).

Thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
