I got an e-mail saying 'At Google Earth we can read maps backwards!'

I thought, "That's just spam."

Do another one, Mac.

'Are you smart enough TO google?'

Google - verb.

I'll leave it for posterity.

Cue Blackadders definition of manuscript and Baldricks fire description response.

The Dictionary was burned, until the very end where the truth emerged.

(The episode ends with Baldrick lighting another fire and this time burning the actual dictionary.)

Doesn't it end with him burning the manuscript of Dlackadder's masterpiece?

Can't remember the title or Edmund's nom de plume.

Something about a servant's tale, written by a 'woman'.

Nope. tremember, the manuscript was burned and it was thought to be said dictionary. Blackadder penned a copy, Johnson burned that...

morning, Johnson and his devotees arrive at the palace, demanding the dictionary. He explains that he has worked on this book 18 hours every day these past 10 years, ignoring his mother's death, his father's bizarre efforts to gain his attention, and his wife's infidelity. Just as the enraged literati are about to kill Blackadder, the Prince emerges from his room, holding the dictionary and offering his patronage. It is ultimately revealed that Baldrick did not burn the dictionary but instead burned the only copy of Blackadder's novel (which Johnson had also brought with him when visiting the Prince). Blackadder is, of course, devastated. Johnson departs in a fit of rage on realizing that his dictionary is missing the word "sausage" after he reads Baldrick's "semi-autobiographical" novel (" Once upon a time there was a lovely little sausage called Baldrick, and it lived happily ever after.") The episode ends with Baldrick lighting another fire and this time burning the actual dictionary

Of course 'SAUSAGE!'

Alas, the clip isn't on youtube. I so wanted to use it for my 'trump card'.

Can you say/type 'trump' in these turbulent times?

Or should that be 'yoo'?

An clue. 'Some people' couldn't find it, even if he ever had a woman.

A boy without a winkle? That's a miracle.

Replied: 28th Sep 2012 at 11:45

The one question I can answer without googling, Piccy., is the reason manhole covers are round is so they can't fall in the hole.

The rest I shall google....
Piano players = All of them
Toilet paper, a good few rolls? (Google doesn't answer)
Shrunk in a blender, ( I would duck) Google gives many answers.
Swimming is water/syrup = both the same.
