So, if someone started posting here who was a former Arsenal goalkeeper-turned-tv pundit what happens to 'our' bob?

Incidentally, I have just googled the above chap, and found his middle name to be Primrose

Ah you're behind the 8-ball on that one, tetsabb. A couple of posters had much hilarity with that when bobwilson first joined us. I have to say that bobwilson has never made any attempt to pretend to be the former Arsenal goalkeeper.

Now this is QI. Anyone know where this expression comes from and what it originally meant?

Nothing to do with the "magic", "fortune-telling" 8-ball toy?

As a matter of forum policy, we don't allow the use of usernames intended to make the reader believe the poster is in fact that person, so the Eddie Izzard username has been banned.

So Zaphod Beeblebrox is not the Zaphod Beeblebrox???

Au contraire.

The poster of that name has not been banned, on account of having demonstrated to the Management's satisfaction being the Zaphod Beeblebrox! That two headed and three armed guy is the imposter ...

If that is the case, they should be banned, for using their full real name, surely?
Or are you going to be pedantic about whether it is ZB III, II or I?

This thread brings me back, that Eddie Izzard stunt was a classic. I often catch myself arguing/discussing a point on this board and wondering if I'm doing so simply to win and argument and look big, but I'd never stoop to that level...

My comment was based on the limited amount of information I had.
