Things which don't seem to have a name

Might just be my ignorance, but here are two to get us started:

1) Those little circular bits of paper that are produced when you use a hole punch

2) Those curled-up paper things you blow at parties (ooer!) which unravel and make a pathetic squeaky duck-call sound

Are there others?

    You see ... I've heard that. But it doesn't work for me. The blower has to be the person on the end of it, doesn't it?

    Party Blowee maybe.

    Surely George Bush jnr didn't cheat his way to the US presidency?

    Surely all votes from black voters were included?

    Surely his brother didn't deliberately miscount the votes in his Florida constituency?

    Surely corruption of this level couldn't possibly happen in the United States?

  • Can't believe that no-one has done a 'Reg Smeeton' yet.
  • What about that gunk that gets on the feet of your computer mouse? Not the fluffy stuff that used to get inside the old trackball mice, but the stuff that accumulates on and sticks to the tiny rubber feet of the mouse. That needs a specific name.
  • Its called gunk mate
  • the streets that U2 sing about
    the time gap between thunder and lightning
    people with plastic flags on their cars for a couple of months
    the emotion felt by a scapegoater when a scapegoat has a successful and totally unscapegoatable game

    No, the filtrum is the bit at the bottom of your nose.

    As in "hello I'm Daniella Westbrook my filtrum disappeared due to the amount of coke I used to sniff" .

  • What is the name of those rumoured little metal things that have Charlton Life on them and are attached to your clothing with a pin ?
  • Douglas Adams dealt with this years ago by attaching strange british place names to unnamed things.
    My favourites were, if I recall correctly;
    A fart in the bath: "Brompton"
    That sticky nasal discharge thats too thick to be snot, but not solid enough to be a bogey: "Skegness".

    Douglas Adams: comedy genius. Sorely missed.
