In Odds and Ends "Oojah-cum-spliff" was claimed to be a typical Wodehousean phrase for All-Fine-And-Dandy. This could not be further from the truth, because the correct phrase is "Oojah-cum-spiff".

Changing Spiff to Spliff is the stuff of human perversity.

Thanks vkvarma but as Bondee illustrated, we do know about that one! Welcome to the forums anyway - we are quite fond of physicists around here.
