    I've had that. I sometimes instruct off-road activities and one of the vehicles we have are those Polaris mud-buggies. Epic machines, but they can really get some loud backfire. A group of inner-London black lads had come along as guests and all spontaneously dropped to the ground thinking it was a gang shooting about to kick off.

    Haha,
    2 months ago we were having dinner in a rather swanky country house near Berwick, and I heard a "gentleman" - you know the type - upper class Scots announce to his dinner guests,

    "Bloody French, they had more casualties in the last world cup than they had in the war"

    I thought of Benny and started chuckling...got the look from SWMBO...
    In between Maserati's!!!!

    There was a 1980 TV series called 'Chancer' where the two enemies met - Piers was driving a very flash car. Steve said "You must have an extremely small p*nis to need a car like that." And Piers drawled in response "Stephen, if you have a car like this, you don't really need a p*nis."
