“Are You OK?” – The Most Pointless, Stupid Question Of 2023?

“Are You OK?” – The Most Pointless, Stupid Question Of 2023?

Will “are you OK?” and “are you really OK?” become the two defining questions of 2023 asks a very much unenthused Matthew Steeples

Blubbering bore Dr Ranj Singh is quite the opposite of the queue jumping blaggart bore Holly Willoughby; he, in fact, is far more and should go down in history as nothing but a blatant bandwagon jumping bore.


Writing for The Guardian this morning, the dippy doctor – who seems to be all too keen to join ‘the club’ frequented by the likes of Sir Elton John, Stephen Fry and Alexa Chung –  embraced self-centred, selfishness whilst on his promotional tour for his bag of bilge How to Be a Boy book and declared:


“I don’t just casually inquire: ‘Are you OK?’ I go the extra mile and ask: ‘Are you really OK?’ This simple question serves as a powerful reminder to myself to delve deeper into the wellbeing of others. It urges me to push past surface-level responses and genuinely listen, to really understand the emotions and challenges that someone may be grappling with. It compels me to embrace kindness.”


Clearly clinging to the coattails of Willoughby, who asked exactly the same tripe when returning to ITV1’s This Morning after the whole scandal of Phillip Schofield had imploded, here is a berk-not-a-boy who also moaned about his “own struggles” with “stress, anxiety and burnout.”


Going further Dr Singh bleated: “And as an adult… I may bear the scars, but I also have the skills and insight to know what to do and how to deal with it.” Perhaps this prized pillock could write that on a postcard. Perhaps also, he could then post it to Phillip Schofield.

This morning on Twitter, Matthew Steeples asked: “Is ‘are you OK?’ and ‘are you really OK’ going to become the idiotic not-really-meant sentiment that 2023 will be forever remembered for?” By 11:30am on Wednesday 21st June 2023, the majority of respondents favoured the answer: “No; cancel them all.”
