Double Entendres

CAUTION: This post contains material which some readers may be offended by, other readers may laugh excessively.

Some of my favourite (unintended) double-entendres ever heard on British TV and radio:

  • One of my absolute favourites Back in the 70’s weathermen used Magnetic Boards; fog had enveloped most of England. While reporting on the weather behind Michael Fish the F from the word F O G fell off leaving O G. At the end of the weather report Michael Fish turned to camera and said “That’s the weather and I’m sorry about the F in FOG. ” the BBC were deluged with complaints about his foul langauge on TV.
  • Ken Brown commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie F*nny Sunneson lining-up shots at the Scottish Open “Some weeks Nick likes to use F*nny; other weeks he prefers to do it by himself. “
  • Harry Carpenter at the Oxford-Cambridge boat race 1977 – “Ah, isn’t that nice. The wife of the Cambridge President is kissing the Cox of the Oxford crew.”
  • Carenza Lewis about finding food in the Middle Ages on Time Team Live said to Tony Robinson: “You’d eat beaver if you could get it.”
  • New Zealand Rugby Commentator – “Andrew Mehrtens loves it when Daryl Gibson comes inside of him.”
  • Pat Glenn, weightlifting commentator – “And this is Gregoriava from Bulgaria . I saw her snatch this morning and it was amazing!”
  • Clair Frisby talking about a jumbo hot dog on Look North said: “There’s nothing like a big hot sausage inside you on a cold night like this. “
  • Mike Hallett discussing missed snooker shots on Sky Sports “Stephen Hendry jumps on Steve Davis’s misses every chance he gets.”
  • Another absolute favourite Michael Buerk on watching (an extremely attractive IMHO; not wearing a lot) Philippa Forrester on a beach cuddled up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1’s UK eclipse coverage commented: “They seem cold out there. They’re rubbing each other and he’s only come in his shorts. “
