Any reader from outside the UK with an interest in the very best of wordplay silliness would be well advised to check out BBC Radio 4's "antidote to panel shows", I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Last April the show ended a run of more than 35 years following the death of its chairman, national treasure Humphrey Littleton (Eton, Brigade of Guards and world class jazzman... well worth a google).
Last night I happened to catch a repeat of the final broadcast including a regular feature, the Uxbridge Dictionary of new definitions for existing words.
Here's a sample:
gurgle to steal a ventreloquist's dummy sanctity a multi-breasted frenchwoman fastidious ugly sprinter tallyho loose woman who keeps count cursory where toddlers learn to swear semolina form of signalling with puddings
Over the years I'm Sorry spawned a series of books, including a couple of editions of the Uxbridge Dictionary. I selected the following from my copy for your delectation:
halitosis bad breath brought on by a comet baccanallian to bet on a martian canape Scottish inability to settle bills acne a dyslexic's walking stick navigate scandal involving road menders senile what to while holidaying in Egypt
