A Conversation for The double entendre
Oooh err missus

Well that seems to be the current expression to usm up all that is innuendo sprinkled or when a person produces their ample and well rounded double entendre. The essay was a great and interesting look at an integral part of the English language and English humour, right from Shakespare through to the music halls where the great Victorian repression was broken by cheeky comics and smutty monologues, of this era Max Miller became one of the best exponents along with George Formby. To my mind Larry Grayon ("Shut that door", "What a gay day!") plus Kenneth Williams were the best at this form of humour. Frankie Howerd himself loved the odd titter and who can blame him- he always claimed it made the audience laugh and he was always one for a warm hand on his entrance!
