They used to film it at the end of my road (Auntie Wainwright's shop). I'd come home from work to find they'd parked the crew's mobile toilet outside my front door. They'd fill the street with all their filming paraphernalia, including cables and those little railway lines they run the cameras on. I couldn't park in front of my own house and found the crew to be rather an arrogant lot to deal with. I've never actually watched the programme all the way through, but I can say I'm not very enamoured with it.

crew's mobile toilet = honey wagon

those little railway lines they run the cameras on = dolly track


Now I have visions of MG looking like William Simmonite :lol:

^^^ Didn't smell like a honey wagon. Is that what you earthlings call... irony?

Umm. Not quite. Maybe a cross between Long John Silver and William Simmonite... With the type of character of Normal Clegg as he was in the earlier series... :P

How dare you insinuate I'm an earthling , I didn't name the things but yes I believe the name is derived from irony

Had to google William Simmonite.
... that was a bit weird. Never even thought about Compo having a proper name. Did Roy Clarke have some deep and mysterious reason for naming him after a 19th century astrologer?

My Mum does the ironing. I have done it on occasions... My Mum does not let me use her iron for other things. It would be great for soldering, but no. It is for ironing only.

Took me a while to work that one out, but I got there (brain fog today)
You're helping to derail your own thread, MG.

To get the thread to make sense again... I was once told I was a cross between Mr Bean and Frank Spencer.... Was due to my masking humour I guess.

I really like the early versions of LOTSW. They had a relaxing atmosphere to them.

It's a very random LOTSW reference?
