"It's the new ACARS, Automatic Crewman Aural Response System, basically it works like that old toy GI Joe system where you pulled a string out of it's back and it spouted out commands, on this version, you punch the buttons on his head and he says stuff like, How many sugars do you want Boss? or Yes Sir no problem or can I carry your bags Sir, a really useful piece of kit, this is the Mk2 version with the enlarged blinkers.."

"Yes sir, this is the third Milliband brother: Nigel. We managed to sort out the dalek voice, the persecution complex and the wild staring eyes. Problem is, if he tries to stand up unaided, he topples over.
