Quoting incessantly from the Goon Show is one of those things that people either love or hate... I and a bunch of my self-confessed goonatic friends can, and will, go on for hours along the lines of "Saying 'Thing' is a cure for monkeys on the knee". OTOH the same technique will cause my girlfriend to leave the room within nanoseconds.

If done to annoy people, as in the latter example above, it works best with co-conspirators... my flatmate is shaping up to be quite a satisfactory sidekick in this regard.

And now I, as Dhericean, have only one thing to say...

"Nick knack, paddywack, give a dog a bone..."
"What are you doing, Min? Dog's had four bones already... three of them are mine."
