I love that technically we should be 'fneezing' not 'sneezing'.

The 'f' was misread as a long medieval 's'. A 'fneeze' has just
the right sound of a blocked nose and a snort.

Psssst Nick, I'm not being entirely serious.

Wilfred's big money Escalado games with Queenie tipped him over the edge financially, and he never fully recovered.

Still, the cash enabled Queenie to bankroll the Sex Pistols in their formative years. Little wonder she became known as the Queen of Punk whatever Siouxsie Dent of the Banshees might have to say about it. Even now all these years later, former Sex Pistols Ronnie Beastly and Ken Putrid stil pay Queenie 10% of their gross earnings.

Etymology of the day is ‘tawdry’, meaning cheap, sordid, or in poor taste. It began as ‘St Audrey’s lace’: ribbons worn as necklaces to honour a 7th-century saint of Ely. Thanks to their often shoddy quality, ‘tawdry laces’ became linked to cheap or disreputable behaviour
