There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

I must admit I've never actually seen a sketch of this - I only know it from the record that used to get played a lot on the radio when I was a kid smiley - biggrin

Your current name, "Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Gosho?" is a reference to a play another extract of which is quoted on your personal space.

Brilliant play, too, as we've agreed before.

TRiG.smiley - ok

Indeed smiley - biggrin

Every now and then I find a quote or a saying I want to use which has two possibilities for the insertion of 'Gosho', and this was one such quotation.

It could have been "Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Gosho?" or it could have been "Why Gosho, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Wales?"

I think the one I chose works best smiley - tongueout

This was another:
"Alas poor Gosho. I knew him, Horatio"

And this one had three possibilities!
"They're techno trousers. Ex-GOSHO. Fantastic for walkies"
