    Mine is "I'm Sorry For Your Trouble". (For anyone unaware, this is a conventional Irish expression of condolence.)

    Good to see you back, my lord. Don't be a stranger. By the way, speaking of wanking, "Sex Education" is back for a second series on 17 Jan. If you haven't seen it, do yourselves a favour and catch up. It'll make you laugh your socks off, and the soundtrack is terrific.

    Correct, he has been recorded as saying that, but quite recently I read somewhere that he has had a change of heart and now aspires to reach the ton. Can't remember the source, but if I find it again I'll post it.

    I think only three of mine obliged, so am content with mid-table obscurity.

    So Who’s Your Salvage Lot of 2020

    Fair play, it just caught my eye and I didn't take note of the context.

    A relative of mine who was diagnosed with cancer in the 90s started having the mistletoe injections. It was a very new treatment then. Sadly the nearest place where it was available was a couple of hours drive away, and he wasn't well enough to go more than a couple of times. What might have been

    Hmm, I'm sure most of mine are goners, but not confident they'll all go this year. Glad I haven't stooped to jokering cancer brides.

    Yeah, I think sheer determination will take Philip through another 18 months to reach 100.

    This is probably just me, but when unread topics are displayed they are showing in the Expanded form instead of Condensed. I have clicked the Condensed button, but it's not changing anything. Anyone else got this? I've tried in Firefox and Chrome, with the same result. @Cat O'Falk any ideas?

    No, but you did once pick a basketball player in the Hartlepool DP. And then got all shirty because you hadn't read the rules & scoring, which state that US baseball and basketball players score negative points.

    Yes, I was wondering what he was up to. Although he doesn't do a lot of actual deadpooling.
