    I think it's called Eggheads cos all the contestants have got nits.
     
  8. This is absolutely bizarre - on the way home today I was thinking of Kolly Kibber...I need to go and lie down. It was a thought around the idea of accidentally meeting someone with a CC jersey...:blush:

    I nicked it (the phrase) fron VIZ comic. They, I think, nicked the phrase from all those old Reader's Digest type magazines.

    That's where I first saw it. They ran a competition where you put money in an envelope addressed to Viz office into a likely looking post box and you had to shout "You are Lucky Lucy and I claim my five pounds". Or something like that.

    I now know about Lobby Lud and have had a Pratchett reference explained into the bargain.
