91-Year-Old Man Is The Most British Person Ever In Post-Vaccine Interview

This 91-year-old man who was interviewed after getting the coronavirus vaccination has won the internet, showing himself to be the most British person ever:

Martin Kenyon spoke at length to CNN about his experience, embarking on multiple tangents as he stoically and charmingly describes some of the less favourable parts of his day en route to getting the jab.

These diversions include politely complaining about not being able to 'damn well find anywhere' to park his car and also speaking mournfully of his 'rather nasty lunch'.

Oh, and it's worth pointing out that, at one point in the interview, a fella walks by casually carrying a red front door... as you do.

People have taken to Twitter to dub the interview 'perfect', with one person saying: "Tremendous old British man content."

Another added: "On a 0 to 100 point scale of Britishness where 0 is Rush Limbaugh and 100 is Queen Elizabeth, this dude is 110."

During the interview, Martin explains: "I rang up Guy's Hospital [Guy's and St Thomas'] which I know very well because I've lived in London most of my grown-up life.

"I said, 'What's this thing you're doing, the vaccination?' They said, 'Yes,' and then they spent various times asking me questions about this and that - not very interesting.

"I said, 'Yes, no, yes, no,' and they said, 'Well, come at half past 12.'

"Of course, I couldn't damn well find anywhere to park my car so I was late. I'm here now."

Eventually, Mr Kenyon explains that the vaccine itself was painless and he didn't feel anything. When he was asked how it feels to be one of the first in the country to get the vaccination, he makes sure to correct the interviewer, pointing out he's actually one of the first in the world.

He then showcases admirable honesty by adding: "I don't think I feel about it at all. Except that I hope I'm not going to have the bloody bug now.

"I don't intend to have it because I've got granddaughters and I want to live a long time to enjoy their lives."

Someone wrap this man in cotton wool and protect him from everything.

He then goes on to explain how he hadn't actually told his family he was going for the vaccine, saying: "I'm getting home and telling them now. Nobody knows, you're the first to know.

"I'm going to tell my family, they don't know I've been here today. I haven't got time to ring up."

Mr Kenyon also adorably adds: "I don't intend to have it. Well there's no point in dying now when I've lived this long, is there? I don't plan to anyway."

What a LAD.
