Cranky Bastard Syndrome is a recently identified condition that affects around 2.5 out of every 3 males aged between 35 and 70. It's particularly common among:

  • men doing well in the Rat Race, 
  • blokes who follow sport,
  • married men,
  • divorcees,
  • fathers of teenagers,
  • guys who like a drink,
  • teetotallers.

You don’t have to look far to realise you’re not the only one feeling this way. In fact, it seems as though Cranky Bastard Syndrome is spreading rapidly, certainly among your mates (the honest ones anyway). The arguments down at the pub just aren’t as much fun as they used to be. Blokes are starting to take it all too seriously and the grog doesn’t help any more. In fact it seems to add fuel to the fire. And don't get me started on our politicians, or the state of refereeing in the footy......

Sorry, I'll calm down a bit now.

A number of factors contribute to the condition, and thankfully these have been diagnosed. Sufferers are known to respond well to certain types of applied treatment, particularly the intelligent ones. (The dumb and/or lazy ones seem to keep getting worse).

That's where Cranky Old Bastards comes in.....
