  1. Quality architectural planning to further enhance the ‘natural’ beauty of the place…
    Seems like brain is functioning marginally today as didn’t need WikiWhackypedia as somehow know that orchitis relates to bollocks and poly is either many or a Chav spelling of a girl’s name. So I’m guessing it means ‘KP Party Pack’ – Many Nuts.

    See you next week Kapitano

  2. Yes Paul, congratulations! As the only person to correctly identify “polyorchidism” as the medical term for possessing a pocketful of nuts, you are the lucky winner of “A Night With The Camels” – an unforgettable experience with the herd under a canopy of dazzling stars, in the freezing cold desert. You lucky, lucky boy.
