The Chronicles of Pootle

The codegent offices were once again filled with mirth and merriment as it emerged that curious Dave's pet (or fluff?) name for his wonderful girlfriend Jane is Pootle!

Younger readers may not be familiar with the classic BBC fur-based television series from the 70s - The Flumps - but the name Pootle "the youngest member of the Flump family, he often got things confused and he sometimes wore a white hat" is certainly a comedy term for his better half.

Aside from outing David as a big softie in this blog entry I would like to also share a beautiful Flumps moment with viewers...

"One of the most tear-jerking episodes concerned Pootle's consternation that the moon appeared to have fallen into a bucket of water. The moment when he realised that it was the reflection of the moon in the water, was a heart-breaking piece of British television."
