     ‘Self-deceivers, too, that’s the other thing. Our friend Jerry was a big smoker – he was of that generation. Went for a general check-up in his sixties and was told he had prostate cancer. Opted for radical surgery. They took his balls away.’

     ‘They took his balls away?’

     ‘Yup.’

     ‘So – so he had just a cock?’

     ‘Well, they gave him prosthetic balls.’

     ‘What are they made of?’

     ‘I don’t know – plastic, I think. Anyway, they’re the same weight. So you don’t notice.’

     ‘So you don’t notice?’

     ‘Do they make them move around like real ones?’

     ‘Are we getting off the subject?’

     ‘Do you know what French slang for balls is? Les valseuses. The waltzers. Because they move around.’

     ‘Is that female? I mean feminine. Valseuses.’

     ‘Yes.’

     ‘Why is bollocks feminine in French?’

     ‘We’re definitely getting off the subject.’

     ‘Testicules isn’t. But valseuses is.’

     ‘Female bollocks. Trust the French.’

     ‘No wonder they didn’t support the Iraq war.’

     ‘Not that anyone around this table did.’

     ‘I was sort of 60/40.’

     ‘How can you be 60/40 on something like Iraq? It’s like being 60/40 on flat-earth theory.’

     ‘I’m 60/40 on that too.’
