Recently whilst in Pickering and gagging for a cup of tea, I enteredr a tea room to find on the counter "Figgins" and yes, they resembled the ones in the pTerrys books! I thought they were delicious!

Hoop is Dutch for Hope :shock:
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

My personal favourite is in UA... page 11

On Glenda's bear:

"Traditionally, in the lexicon of pathos, such a bear should have only one eye, but as the result of a childhood error in Glenda's sewing, he has three, and is more enlightened than the average bear."

'... Smarter than the average bear' :wink:

Also a reference to T. Lobsang Rampa and his utterly discredited "autobiography" about being a Tibetan Lama, which claims (amongst other jaw dropping silliness) that the key to unlocking your psychic potential and achieving enlightenment lies in learning to see through your pineal gland, referred to as "the third eye", by having a hole drilled in your forehead. :shock:

Plus, it's also sometimes used to designate a pile of poo. We've come full circle!

Well it didn't do much good in Scanners either :wink: But it made a good film though.

Does hoop really mean poo?
