Nor did I, thought of Biggles and Googled.

When I saw what came up I thought that it was worth posting

I could see the headline, but not on the magazines that we read

May I suggest the eloquently simple, if not cute "OTTO".......yes, it was used 40 years ago by some control-liner, but there is no copyright on names or titles

At the top of my list is Charlie's suggestion of 'Whippit'

Devo - Whip It (Video) (2 min 47 sec)



reminds me of the school disco!

I am waiting for confirmation on whether this model is small enough for a free pull out plan in the mag
