Don't drink alcohol beverage, gave it up when I was 15 after a drunken ride on my bicycle.  ;D

Now Ovaltine, that's different. Usually have it about 2 am. A large mug full, five spoons of chocolate flavoured, mixed with two spoons of coffee mate and two spoons of sugar in hot water. Just the stuff to help have a good kip.  8)
Ain't got nuffink now except memories.

Cows, we got stuck behind one for 25 minutes when I was in a hurry to catch the last train back to London.

That's not the way to talk about women drivers!

I nearly made a joke on similar lines!

The only whiplash I heard of in 1989 and earlier is something scantily clad ladies of the night used on their clients?  :-[

It used to be a standing joke in American comedy, The Fortune Cookie with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau being a notable example. Difficult to understand why its treated with such reverence.
