I was going to postpone any more blogging about, er, a certain person, at least until I had done my Nativity blog.
But after another tweeter came up with this magnificent description of You Know Who, a sense of mischief crept up on me.
So (without naming full names – perish the thort!), I will now post a list of soubriquets of certain souls on Twitter, and leave it to you to figure out just who they might possibly be. All in a spirit of seasonal goodwill, I stress.
Disclaimer: I am the originator of only seven of them. Items in inverted commas are taken from the tweeter’s own description.
Poundland (after she tried to crowd-fund an action against social media harassment, but only managed to raise £880 – bless!)
Phillidrugs (after she admitted getting drunk and taking drugs in the past: it’s all right so long as you don’t do it in court, she says. Obvs.)
The Bristol buffoon
No. 2 (best mates with No. 1)
“A proud Scallywag throwing/ A Janner in Brittan’s works”
Lord Haw Haw
Dame Alan Loony
The Beast of Miele
The Pantomime Dame
Tadpole of the Bailey
“This account is temporarily restricted”
Dull and Sunny
The Prague photographer
“The real ‘Nick’ is my friend….”
All further suggestions gratefully received.
Corrected and re-issued after I discovered that I had misunderstood who “Tadpole” was. But…..it still makes me laugh. Every day. Thanks to the person whose humour gave birth to such a brilliant catchphrase. More power to your elbow!
