    When I go visit people, they always have different names for their remote control for their TV. Tell me, what do you call yours?

    Ahmed.

    He's a little orphan child my mother brought back from one of her aid tours in Somalia. We've pretty much adopted him as part of the family now and he likes nothing more than to work 14 hour days doing odd-jobs round the house and watch TV with us when he's finished his evening shift.

    Yes, but he is 38, so in that context it seems less cute than creepy.

    I was at a mate's watching one of the games in last year's world cup, all of us pretty pissed.

    Anyways, my mate kept on going on about where his 'pair of white buttons' were. Took us about 5 minutes for us to work out what they were due to his seriously bad explaining. Interestingly they weren't even white. So ummmm yer.

    I call it the 'remote (control)', like all sane people should
