Maybe he was going down on his own sword?

"ersmt" - very appropriate

Yeah, yeah. As Nabs would say: Try the veal, it'll be here all week.

I mean ... um...

I think one of the Channel 9 commentators described Michael Parkinson's wife as "Sir Lady Parkinson".

Pomgirl, that's why I listen to the ABC. They too are bad -- but they are less bad. And funnier.

Our cricketers are so MACHO, I could well imagine them having a sword and blazing guns on the go at the same time.

It was to Kerry, & Glenn did then fluster in embarrassment. Bring back McGilray....

That was Mark Nicholas interviewing Parky during the Lunch Show - or the Luncheon Show, according to Bill Lawry - and he was joking about what to call Parky's wife after he'd asked Parky how he like to be addressed.

About all you can do if you're on a sticky wicket without a paddle.
