Now let's have a look at the sales chart. When you took over this account, Frog,Conquistador was a brand leader. Here ypu introduced your first campaign, "Conquistador coffee brings a new meaning to the word vomit." Here you mad your special introductory offer of a free dead dog with every jar, and this followedyour second campaign "The tinglin fresh coffee which brings you exciting new cholera, mange dropsy, the clap, hard pad, and athlete's head. From the House of Conquistador."

Frog: It was a soft-sell, sir.

[Faux German accent]

Universal affirmatives can only be partially converted. All of "Alma Cogan is dead," for example, but only some of the class of dead persons are Alma Cogan.

In the "you learn something new every day" department, it turns out that "Ecky Thump" is a common expression in Northern England.

It's similar to "hell's bells" or maybe even "oh, snap!".
