Tom Jones Syndrome

I'm told that this blog has become far too serious - pious even. Can't have that. So....

Dai went to see his doctor because he could not stop singing the 'Green, Green Grass of Home'.

Doctor told him not to worry because it was only Tom Jones Syndrome - and that 'its not unusual'.

I daresay its an old one - but I like it.
