Little Known Ailments of the Modern Age (number 4501) – Shopper’s Knee

Shopper’s Knee – a chronic condition predominantly affecting men when on shopping expeditions with female partners.  Often mistaken for an attack of selfishness, the only known remedy is immediate rest and a swift intake of alcohol in a nearby bar.  The condition is indiscriminate: it can suddenly strike down men of all ages, during the weekly purchase of household sundries or, more commonly, the seasonal extended search for clothing.  (See also Chronic Family Gathering Fatigue [CFGF])
