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. “
