Christmas crackers aren't really a thing in America. You can get them, but yer average Americanx wouldn't be familiar with them.

They don't know what they're missing, the poor things. They may all be equal, but they all equally lack a paper hat, a rubbish joke and a small novelty of variable quality.

That reminds me, at Christmas dinner at Fanmumanddad Three's I got in my cracker a keyring with a high quality plastic diamond hanging off it.

And yet I haven't seen it since Dec 25. I must have left it behind bawl

We all know about personalised number plates, but I didn't realise that there are also personalised postcodes for "high profile organisations".

For example:

British Telecom's address is DH98 1BT

The Sun newspaper is E98 1SN shifty

TSB Bank is BX4 7SB dontpanic
Egg Banking confused 2 is DE99 3GG bananaspin

I'd forgotten about GIR 0AA, which is particularly egregious because it has 3 letters in the first bit instead of 2.

That reminds me of Radio 2's text number - 88291 - "88 to 91" being Radio 2's old wavelength/bandwidth thingy and one of their slogans.

I know a fair bit about music, I'm also the son of a former music teacher, but I've only just this minute found out that "celli" is the plural of cello. gasp
