Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves

I love my little sister. I always did. She’s fun, and rather wonderful.

But being a big brother, and now a professional torture merchant, I had to learn my trade somewhere.

Louise is her name. But from the age of five, she was always Loo Wees. The pan, plus its contents. Poor dear, to this day, parcels may still arrive at her door bearing this name.

And looking back, she really didn’t deserve some of the ribbing she got – or to be honest the fact that I once attempted to sell her in the ‘Horses’ section of the local advertiser.

On that occasion she only got one inquiry – but rather beautifully it was she who picked up the phone to it.

‘Hello. I’m phoning about Louise.’


So, may I use these pages to publicly thank Loo Wees for kick-starting my career in the world of torture.

So I’m sure this is where I must have picked up my brand of toilet humour. I mean, where else could it have come from? After all, I can’t think of another name that is redolent of toilets. Can you?

Best wishes,

‘John’ (Paul)

  2. Fifi? (It’s a double, you see)

  3. Enjoyed your toilet seat clue on saturday – it was my final solution as I was convinced it was an author! Whilst I appreciate that only you are are allowed to copy Mudd, “Braless” was clued the same way in saturday’s FT and in yesterday’s Guardian, I presume you are not in control of the timing of their publication.

    • Hi Fearsome. Glad you enjoyed the clue, and thanks for writing. Gosh, I am so not in control of the timing of puzzles’ publication, and do not have a system for fiiing clues or ideas, so unfortunate little things do crop up once in a while, if I’ve forgotten I’d used a particular device before. Oh well. Have a good day, and thanks again.


  4. It’s perhaps not in the same league, but I’ve always felt that W C Fields suggests some form porcelain farming.
