A man who took the Prime Ministers advice and sang happy birthday to himself twice while washing his hands has been sectioned. His wife, who spotted the behaviour and called the NHS mental health line and police were called to the scene. "I didn't know it was part of the government's advice", said Anne Cheshire, "but I am enjoying the time by myself"! All across the nation, people are singing happy birthday while they wash their hands leading to some concerned on the impact on children. "If children see adults singing a song normally associated with a significant event", said Doctor Igor Snood, "they may start to sing Christmas carols in June. The next step is obviously lunacy which has occurred in some adults".
