When they termed the phrase domino effect in the 50's I bet they didn't expect that this would be the s**t that hit the fan!

Haha! That's brilliant. I remember RIAT 2010 when the Tornado demo team were "dropping their bombs" on the display line. I've never seen my cousin move so fast as she came bounding out of the toilet wondering what had gone on.

The TURDIS park at the Time Lords' convention... Let's hope the pilot had at least turd party cover!

I seem to remember hearing about one of the V bombers veering off the runway and clipping the toilet next to the runway controller's van. Unfortunately it was in use but the time set for the 100 yards by the WAAF encumbent, with her knickers round her ankles, would probably shame many Olympians.

Irresistible force vs immovable object...aka, inertia vs constipation.
