A tim-tam is an Australian penguin-a-like.

You can usually get them in bigger supermarkets or specialist food shops.

What's the collective noun for collective nouns?

Malcolm was bold enough to comment:

Ordinarily I'd agree (and can even envisage its occurring in the workplace tomorrow, but... What's a tim-tam? And can you buy them in Yorkshire?



Yep, you can get them at Tescos, you'll find them in the jaffa cake/digestive section rather than the Kit Kat/Penguin bit.

A confusion of collective nouns? Don't know...

Although while looking I did discover that the collective noun for aardvarks is an aarmory (yes, that is the right spelling!).
Interesting Politicians are in a lie.

It's a catch of collective nouns and a collective of nouns.

I've got to admit I totally misunderstood this when I first read it - I thought you meant we should write a Legent of TheDaddyDotOrgers.

And now I think about it, maybe we should... Huh...

I only ever saw the repeats in the afternoons. And for some reason Richie drove me mad. I think it was his voice. I don't know.

Fortunately he became a director instead, which was a much better place for him. Although the only film that springs to mind is Ransom. I know he did other stuff, but I can't for the life of me think what...

Oddly they seem to have based about half of Universal Studios around him and his work. I went from not realising he was a director to having in-depth knowledge of his leadership in such classics as Backdraft, Apollo 13 and Cinderella Man

Thats 1 long CV


Imagine the amount of paper.
speaking of paper what floats your boat in newspaper reading??

I have to admit its The Sun for me why???? cos i like to read the news in short format instead of a full page spread of long hard words like in the guardian.

Word of mouth. Seriously.

It's just like reading a newspaper except you get all of the major headlines and general information about what's going on without any of that annoying celebrity crap you get most other places.

Plus it comes in an easily digestible format, with regular updates to keep stories interesting!

I've all but given up on the papers now - use the bbc website instead. If I do partake it's usually an Independent (plus a Heat mag every now and then...).

Yeah, given that I spend half my day in front of a computer screen I pretty much rely on t'internet aswell.
And of course, the old classic 'the news'.

Personally I go for a three-way split between the BBC website, BBC News 24 and the Guardian. I only choose the Guardian because it's free to get an automatically-updated daily version on my pocket pc every day - ideal for trains.

Although I have to agree with Amanshu that whenever there's something major happening, word of mouth seems to beat all other forms of news. I learned about the last two London bombings from Malley, just across the office from me. I learned about the Olympic decision by hearing the whole of the counselling service (in the office across the corridor) shouting simultaneously. And I tend to learn about disruptions to the rail network by experiencing them first-hand.

Also - anything to do with immigration, I lean through observing three-inch high newspaper headlines out of the corner of my eye while walking past newsagents. The same goes for anything Big Brother-related.

Since signing up to BBC breaking news e-mails I have become the Fiona Bruce of our office, relaying the current stories to my colleagues. I am now trying to perfect my 'concerned and sympathetic but professional' look.

On another topic, saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last night, so new debate... Ooompa Loompas or Smurfs?

EDIT: Or I may consider a womble...

Although I've got to admit, I do get some local news by reading the headlines of the local paper in the office canteen each day.

But when I say reading the headlines I really do just mean that as I walk past...

Apparently yesterday the ex-Lord Mayor of Portsmouth chased a robber down and I've got to say that I think all ex-Lord Mayor's should do that. I can just see it now, ex-Lord Mayor man, and his sidekick city-councillor boy...

Smurfs - blue, big noses, silly hats - friendly yet stupid
Oompa Loompas - dwarves, green hair, white eyebrows - cold, calculating evil

Spanners, he vote for Smurfs

No, I'm going to have to go with Wombles - I mean they're cuddly, fluffy and ecologically sound.

Oompa Loompa's are short weird, and work in a chemical spewing factory.
Smurf's are obviously freezing to death, and I've always had the feeling that some of them would go for your throat given half a chance.

Either that or I had some weird day dreams when I was a kid...!
