You realise you're suggesting the Mail isn't at the cutting edge of journalism here? Dangerous ground.

Good idea about the comment meme Timbo, I wonder if I could get away with it as my name?

Or how about using 'sacré' followed by a different colour or word? Sacré pink, sacré barely-there, sacré modesty?

'Sacre' is one key away from 'Dacre'. Sacré dacré?

ETA: I'm in!

Sacré woof! If only more celebrities would take Mollie's lead (geddit?) and walk their dogs, there'd be no room on the pavement for the stone-throwing yobs. Saturdays, Britain needs YOU!

@Wally Toynbee Sacré Bleu! Pourquoi est-il que vous avez à me poser, vous méchant homme. Il est évident pourquoi les commentateurs préfèrent l'anglais au français, c'est parce que la France Belle est supérieur en tous points à l'rosbifs. J'espère que mon aide anglo-saxonne cousine.

Is that the Yes Minister version of tired and emotional?
