... I was reminded of one of the best showbiz stories I ever heard.

Early in their careers, Mike and Bernie Winters (for younger readers,a "comedy" double-act that made the Chuckle Brothers look like masters of subtlety) were playing in variety in Glasgow, a city notorious for its capacity to strangle new acts (particularly Sassenach ones)at birth.

Mike began by coming before the curtain and playing a doleful air on his clarinet. The audience responded with a slow handclap, a selection of interesting traditional Gaelic invective and the pitching of sundry objects onto the stage.

Sensing imminent death, brother Bernie made his entrance in the usual manner ... by sticking his head between the curtains, giving a ghastly buck-toothed gurn and doing his gormless "Nyyyaaaaahhh",

At which one Caledonian wag called out "FUCKING HELL! There's TWO of them!!!"

Precisely!
