The top 12 dull men in the UK include a drain spotter, traffic cone enthusiast, brick collector and a loving husband that has given his wife the same Valentine's Day card for 35 years in a row.

Over 5,000 men belong to The Dull Men's Club and they are passionate about mundane things that others might find boring.

We wanted to have a bit of fun. The British are well known for being eccentric and this calendar is a celebration of that.
