    I'd never trust a politician named 'boner'.

    I'm unsure what that means, but from now on, if my wife asks, I'll tell her to touch my throat-warbler.

    Go for it, D, but it's just from a Monty Python TV show sketch. :D

    As in:
    The door opens and Raymond Luxury Yacht enters. He cannot walk straight to the desk as his passage is barred by the strip of wood carrying the degrees, but he discovers the special hinged part of it that opens like a door. Mr Luxury Yacht has his enormous polystyrene nose. It is a foot long.

    Specialist: Ah! Mr Luxury Yacht. Do sit down, please.

    Mr Luxury Yacht: Ah, no, no. My name is spelt 'Luxury Yacht' but it's pronounced 'Throatwarbler Mangrove'.

    Specialist: Well, do sit down then Mr Throatwarbler Mangrove.

    Mr Luxury Yacht: Thank you.

    Etc...
