Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to Win-nie, Happy birthday to you!
Londonist would like to congratulate Winnie Langley for reaching the precious age of 100 years old today. To put this in context, this means she’s seen two World Wars and no less than 19 different Prime Ministers. Wow, that’s a lot of stuff to see in a lifetime.
So how is Winnie, from Croydon going to celebrate her birthday? By having a fag, that’s how. Apparently she’s been smoking since infant school (around the time of the First World War) and has no intention of stopping now.
Winnie has been smoking 5 a day since she started, which at todays prices would, (if our maths is right) have cost Winnie around £50,000. Think of the size of the birthday cake you could but with that. Winnie might have to, she’s got to pull all of those candles somewhere.
Have a great day, Winnie!
