very good!!!

Superb!!! :stuck_out_tongue:

OMG it’s not April 1st is it?

Surely the Editor shouldn’t let it go out like that?


Well spotted, that is quite subtle and the better for that.

:smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

My GP’s name from a few years ago was Dr Sores

You should worry. A few years ago there was a Dr. Blood in Eltham.

Yeah, bad enough so far, but he was a direct decendent of Captain Blood of pirate “fame”.

Right, who’s had a dentist called Phil McCavity ? :smiley:

Do I detect someone doesn’t believe Dr Blood?

He made it into one of the Sunday supplements, with interview, when Greenwich Maritime Museum had a big pirate exhibition a “few” years back.

I didn’t know Phill Mc Avarty was a dentist. I just thought he was gay.


Yes, bit of a ticklish one that - we hoped nobody would notice. :Whistling:

It is his real name and may I assure you that he is a jolly nice chap … and doesn’t.

Still, you can imagine the scene in Rome:

RB: (stands to ask question at press conference) “Roger Boyes…”

Cardinal: “No! Yes, well … it was all a long time ago…”

Wow. :laugh:

Now people have spotted, perhaps a subtle change of name might be in order (?) though that’s hard for journalists who’s reputations are built on their name.

Still wondering what happened to the Richard Head I was at school with, in the 50’s/60’s,who was always called Dick.

brilliant name… RB


There was one working at Texaco when I was there 20 years ago, dunno if he’d be the same one though.

There’s someone in our German operation called Bernd Finger… :slight_smile:

He sure does get around.

All they need now is a crime correspondent called Robin Banks. That will make it almost worth the new access fee. Or maybe not.

I went to school with an unfortunately named boy called Phil Hiscock.

There is just no way The Times On line is worth paying for.
