One day I'll be an adult
There's a series of case reports called the Criminal Appeals Review. All case reports have standard abbreviations. This one is "Cr. App. R." Every time I need to read a case from it I get the uncontrollable urge to snicker.

You are not alone: I saw a brand of chilli & seafood sauce in the world food section of Asda last night called shito. That amused me so much I took a picture of it.

I'd've said that Force Awareness is very important in S&M...

Many years ago, I used to regularly pass a van marked "S&M specialist cleaning services" on my way to work. This provided many whimsical moments wondering whether they didn't realise, had done it deliberately, or really meant it.

"Crapper" is quite a common surname in the Sheffield area. There used to be, and probably still is, a firm of estate agents there called Crappers. Maybe they ought to take over Foxtons.

I assume you weren't aware of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Crapper

Oh, I knew about Thomas Crapper and how his name became a sort-of synonym for his invention like "Hoover" or "Biro", though I thought much of the story was apocryphal. Figures that he was a South Yorkshire man too.
