I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, the long-running, self-styled antidote to panel games on BBC Radio 4, is in its 63rd series. Some snippets from two recent episodes:

Introducing an episode from Sheffield, chairman Jack Dee, noted Nick Clegg the local MP and former leader of the Liberal Democrat Party, had admitted in an interview he had tried cannabis at university in the 1970s. Observers say it impairs thinking and decisionmaking but can't say when the effects are likely to wear off!

A session on mistaken proverbs produced a few gems:
> Look before you leak.
> A thong of beauty is a joy for ever.
> Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.
> Farting is such sweet sorrow.
> Love thine enema.
> The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Mistaken signs
Non smoking sign seen on an Italian railway platform:
> Don't alight here.

Introducing an episode from St Albans included Jack Dee's comment that "St Albans, the undisputed gateway to Hatfield". It brought a combination of cheering and a few groans from the local audience.

Meaning of expressions
> Frog-march - third month in the French calendar.
> Encounter - where they display chickens for sale in supermarkets.
> Manoeuvering - what my wife would like to see more often around the house.
> Biased - having four buttocks.
> A blatter - someone who nearly gets away with it!
