    6 oranges for £1.That is quite a bargain.

  2. Well done! I knew someone would do it, didn’t really expect it that quickly!

    And no, I’ve no idea why that message – I don’t think any of us understand how Crumbly’s mind works!

    Oh! Was that what the subliminal message was?
    You do realise that the whole point of subliminal is that the conscious mind doesn’t notice it?
    Advertising it with nearly a fanfare kind of spoils the point…;)
    I think someone needs a lie down.

  4. Any moment of fine acting or that will give someone a fright is a proud one for me, to see others are affected by it. But the most embarrassing is & will always be Dalek Sec (“Dalek Sex”, Mr Willy Head). I am terrified others will ask me about that. Whatever they were thinking with it wasn’t their brains. I know there are many allusions to phallic images involved (Sonic Screwdrivers, etc) but that is the worst.
