Oh, they've been having a right old laugh over at TV Licensing HQ where the top excuses for not paying have been revealed. Enjoy the best of the rest, which we're totally going to re-purpose wherever possible in our lives, below:

  • "I had not paid as I received a lethal injection."
  • "Knowing my luck I'll be dead in six months and won't get value for money."
  • "I have lost weight recently and had to buy new clothes. That's why I could not afford to buy a TV licence."

More blips!
