People on ends weren’t sure what to do with their arms


New Year’s celebrations were ruined for end-of-row people, after the traditional singing of Auld Lang Syne left them with an awkwardly hanging arm.

Once again, New Year’s Eve was entered into by a number of people who had little idea of the words of the song, or the arm protocol for those taking an end of line position.

Murial Hislop (pictured front row, right) mumbled her way through the hymn, and left the celebrations with an embarrassed, unfulfilled right hand.

‘I was hoping to start the New Year on a diet, but fuck that now!’ said Hislop.

‘They should teach this stuff at school; what are schools for?’ added Hislop.
