Oh Tom! Now you have explained about an Umlaut in a polite idiot proof manner. then you go and confuse me even more mentioning something that sounds like Trauma and Derriere (possibly spelt that wrong!) lol
Are you sure you weren't the Cabbie who won \mastermind! I will now be checking with you if I ever see a word I cant understand..:-)
Check away Jan, I'll do my best, and remember, I don't need an encyclopedia or Wikipedia, my wife knows EVERYTHING, but if you ask her about me, she'll say, "He is as intelligent as all get out, but he's never had a lick of common sense."
The black cab driver who won Mastermind, was Fred Housego.
He lived in Stanmore, Middx., and often 'worked' the airport, where he was ragged silly in the drivers restaurant after he won Mastermind.
Guys would shout at him, "Fred, what's the capital of North Korea?"
When he'd reply "Pyongyang", they'd say, "Correct, but no points, because no one likes a smart arse!"
