The idea was an extremely promising one with all the usual winning ingredients: Z-list celebrities, a predictable format and a telephone vote. Each week famous celibate celebs would be taken to some temptingly erotic location and titillated until they gave in – last one standing (or unencumbered by furry handcuffs) was the winner. However, the […]
These fall broadly into three sub-categories: Comedy – lurch about swinging wildly and can’t hit a thing and can amuse you for hours but if you’re a good friend make sure they don’t hurt themselves. Professional – can hit really hard and are what Tasers were invented for. aka “twats” or “psycopaths”. Literal – they […]
A terrible condition which afflicts anyone whose job involves repeating a breezy greeting or repetitive and insincere offer of assistance to people they really don’t care about. This results in the creation of a whole host of new fictionary words like: Jawonanysawses? Jalykadrink? Pastrywivat? Enthintweet? Pliskallmibakon (incomprehensible phone number). Wojjalyke? Kannagajennything? Crispynutsothersnaks? Galarge? And the […]

The end result of eating paté which has passed it’s sell by date.
That really odd sideways and upwards look which makes the selfie taker look like they’ve had either an orgasm or a stroke…
Prone to laughing at absolutely nothing until their eyes look just as red as .
Very cute when they fall asleep, mildly annoying when they snore, yucky when they dribble in your crotch.

If your mood is the deciding facor and you are any of the other types – apart from – drink more punch! Highly likely to become with the rapidity […]
The act of Cucumber Trumpeting involves hollowing out the fruit and, by adding the appropriate holes, playing it like a trumpet. Honestly this sounds more like a flute or penny whistle to me, but I just have to go with the reasearch and trumpeting appears, at present, to be the popular term for this activity. […]
Blubby Drunks careen around your party all evening crying and talking in that strange way where all the words run together until abruptly swinging into one of the other drunk types when they aren’t getting enough attention. Don’t let them near the punch – unless it’s our very own – because they’ll cry and snot […]
If you can give someone a false sense of security – can you give them a genuine sense of insecurity?
Wimborne (a.k.a Wimborne Pants): Originating near the Dorset/Somerset border this is a completely non-contact, defensive art practiced principally in public houses. Scenario: Having accidentally jostled a fellow customer you are confronted with a very irate “Oy mate!

An Orangutang is an strongly flavoured orange sweet which has been in your pocket without the wrapper for a minimum of one month (the duration of a UK Summer) picking up all the fluff. This results in a fluffy orange object which can still be absurdly appealing after a night of heavy drinking.

That unmistakable all year round ruddiness of the raging alcoholic.
The perfect term for those moments when you meet someone so idiotic that halfwit just won’t do and quarterwit seems too harsh…
A clue that someone has had media training. It is, apparently, rude to point. But people feel a natural inclination to do so when accusing each other. The media trainers seem to teach people to tuck their index finger in… but that leaves the thumb resting on the tucked finger. The hand still jabs towards […]
That mysterious dirt you find stuck to the inside of your glasses even though you haven’t touched them.
