    Changing a duvet cover in the back of a moving caravan.

    Playing the sax solo from Gerry Rafferties Baker street while kicking a football up an escalator.

    Opening a bag of Doritoes whilst standing in a hammock.

    Being right in an argument against an angry woman.

    Reading a copy of The Daily Mail without rolling your eyes, regardless of how right or left wing you are.

    Unicycling backwards across a tight rope juggling whilst drunk.
