Ellie's Law?
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

Nah, I'm pretty sure any law of mine wouldn't involve Nazis. :P

So is there a minimum period of membership before we are allowed to verbally conjugate with the Mods and more importantly avoid being sent for an early shower. :wink: :?

Wow I have not heard the term "Sunshine" used in a long while (very old school) did you go to the other place? In my day "Oi Sunshine" was usally followed by a fourpenny one ... (fawpney) :o

I'm still in slow sleep mode before I roll up to work an hour or so late, and can't even focus on a google search right now, so I'll take your word for it. If I ever use this phrase for something and get laughed at, I'm holding you responsible. :P

I use it. Although according to people I know, since I don't have an iphone/smartphone I'm stuck in the 1800s anyway, so clearly I'm just old fashioned.

I like calling people sunshine. It's amusingly ironic when you're using it to refer to a grumpy til monkey you're trying to discipline. :thumbup:
