Don't swear at your mum.

Chatting on the phone tonight, she asked me what I thought of Charles & Camilla. My reply was indifference and annoyance. I'm not particularly bothered about the whole thing and annoyed that the Beeb devoted so much airtime to it on PM.

Topic drifted onto the job being a calling like the Pope & I pointed out that Popes aren't born into the role, it is sorted out with white smoke. She said the cardinals elect like the Masons. I immediately said BALLS. Sorry? she asked.

"The masons use Balls for ballots, hence the term blackballed" I replied. It is a good job she didn't take offence...
