My fridge is a SMEG - it's black and I love it so much I bought an over-sized green lizard fridge magnet to run up it... :twisted:

Apparently the producers of the show used it because it sounded like a one-syllable word of no apparent meaning that might end up as a swear word in the future... not because it was a fridge brand.

Oh smegging smeg, what the smeg have you smegging done?

Obviously a very versatile word.

It's a robot. See, a kind of disc-shaped head, and the body to the left.
