“Hey Paul, you know that couple you play golf with on a Friday?”

“John and Dawn? What about them?”

“She never stops talking, but then he’s very quiet... in fact I don’t think I’ve ever heard him say a single word.”

“He can’t!”

“Can’t? Is he dumb then?”

“The doctors call it a case of Forgotten-how-to-get-a-word-in-edgeways-itis.”

“Really? Is there a cure for it?”

“For some blokes yes, but not in John’s case, because of his other affliction”

“What’s that?”

“He’s got what they call Too-shit-scared-to-do-a-runner Syndrome.”
