Yes, you're right! Sorry. I had been thinking it wasn't quite right myself. But he and ImNotDedalus had a fairly similar sense of humour so I tended to get them muddled up, or at least associate...

People just used to write "waffles". Linking to images came later, and I guess that would have used bandwidth, but I don't think that removing the post and writing "waffles" instead of the duplicate...

TVR seems a bit out of place on that list - those were pretty low-volume sports cars that almost fall into your "exotic" category, surely? Some models they made fewer than a hundred of. Nice, though...

Oi! I haven't read them all yet, but number 2 is an English (or British) food brand! I think Australians might eat it as well, but theirs isn't even the same!

There was a trend a few years ago for Irish bars in the UK to label the loos in Gaelic - Fír and Mna.

But you know what he's named after, right? (Albeit indirectly, I assume...)

Maybe I shouldn't mention this! If you don't, then perhaps you shouldn't look it up!
