Oh boy, only in PC Britain could such a thing happen :lol:

But what about 'nicknames' I was at school with a guy called Richard and we called him Tricky Dicky. Dick has/had long been a shortened name for Richard, hasn't it???

That was how Richard Nixon was referred to in the early seventies wasn't it?

One of my football coaches in high school was a Tricky Dick. Last name Dixon... forgot first name. :)

And as far as I can recall he greatly deserved that nickname. Although many of out current political wannabes also deserve the 'tricky' title.

Ah! I had forgotten that more famous "tricky" but that is exactly the period I am refering to i.e. late 60's to early 70's...............now that makes me feel ancient :lol:


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Not the best quality - taken with a cell phone but still pretty funny.

My old boss used to tell a story about a job interview she had right out of college that went badly. The recruiter set up the interview and told Debbie she was to meet Mr Dix in the lobby at 9:00 AM sharp. When she arrived, she was greeted by a man "Hello, you must be Debbie" he said. "Yes I am," she replied, "and you must be Mr. Cox."

She said she wished she had just left right then.. She knew she had blown it (her pun, not mine).

True Story.

I didn't take it, it's really funny, but it's something you won't see twice in your lift time.

I'm ashamed I thought anything of this. If it helps, I saw it from a distance and my vision isn't the greatest.
