    1. Glad to give you a bit of a chuckle. Found the Liz Taylor GIF sometime ago, while looking for something else. Thought it was well done and saved it. 🙂

    1. Many thanks. I was thinking about the word games that they play on BBC radio show Sorry I haven’t a Clue and the list started to propagate. Unfortunately I was in bed at the time, and the only one I clearly remembered the next day was the Hamlet one. As a consequence, I had to generate a new list. If I ever recall more of the original list ( and they are any good), I may have to do another post. 😀

      Happy Easter. Hope the new Dr. Who episode was a good treat. 🙂

      1. Haven’t seen this Dr Who episode yet — I tend to dip in and out — but I gather the reaction has been muted.

        I can see the influence of ISIHAC here, certainly! Great prog, try to catch it when I can.
