    Yup.....and amazingly is also an anagram of Pissflaps. 
  • NOVATION

    From the Brandsmiths to Southall letter. Cited by @Henry Irving and others on the Southall - Bassini thread

    Is it:

    a) The opposite of an ovation - a special moment where nobody claps.
    b) A legal term for the replacement of an old contract with a new one.
    c) The act of getting egg on your face.

  • MOUNTEBANK

    Making its 3rd appearance today courtesy of @McBobbin on the Brexit thread, just two days after its previous mention by @NornIrishAddick on the same thread. Its debut was brought to us by @ColinTat back in July on the Birmingham v Charlton Post Match Thread.

    Is it:

    a) A financial institution operated by the Canadian Mounted Police.
    b) A small mountain named after a monocled boxer.
    c) A charlatan or swindler.

    Can I go for d)?



    Which is, of course, a first cousin of the pettifogger (or in Mr. Farnell's case, pettifogging viper).
  • And tomorrow's word of the day writes itself! 
  • PETTIFOGGER

    Word of the day is running a little late due to all the excitement on the TS and BS threads, but here we are as promised with @NornIrishAddick's Pettifogger.  

    Is it:

    a) As mentioned above, a first cousin of the mountebank.
    b) A small device used to emit dry ice at stage shows and discotheques (compare with grandfogger, a somewhat larger device used for Ibiza raves, Pink Floyd concerts and Vincent Price films).
    c) A pouch of potpourri which is sewn into a ladies petticoat to counter the effects of flatulence, dry gusset, wet gusset, stink creek and associated maladies.
