Britons find being older than 52 is
nothing to laugh about because that’s the age when they start becoming grumpy,
according to a new survey.
The poll of 2,000 Britons found
those over 50 laughed far less than their younger counterparts and complained
While infants laughed up to 300
times a day, that figure had fallen to an average of six laughs by teenage
years and only 2.5 daily chuckles for those over 60, the survey for cable TV
channel Dave found.
Men were also found to be grumpier
One reason for the decline in mirth might be the lack of joke-telling skills.
The study found the average Briton
only knows two jokes.
