is that his cup?

It's his Tower of London to his family jewels

Or Stephen's nose guard.

Oh, well done banjo and Fryphile !
Take a bow...



It was, indeed, what banjo calls a 'cup' and Fryphile describes as 'His Tower of London to his family jewels'. (Brilliant description and very sensitively put !)

BUT

Does anyone know what English cricketers call it ?
(It's not usually referred to as a cup, although I'm sure some sports use that word.)

The first person to answer correctly will be awarded 6 Frypoints


AND an England cricket ball. Whew ! What a prize !!!!

Sorry, emma_wemma, it's not an 'Abdo Guard'.

But you can have 4 Fry points (or 'runs') for being the first to reply.



Anyone else want to try for the big 6 - and the ball ????

Er....sorry, no Fryphile and shatzi.

But your ideas are VERY amusing ! And quite logical, really.

HINT: The real English cricketing name is NOT very logical (which doesn't help).

If Stephen happens to be looking in in on this discussion (yeah...right...), he'll be having a real laugh !

Keep 'em coming !

We have a winner !!!!!

er, cricket box ????

This little gentleman's item (worn by both batsmen and the wicket keeper behind the stumps) is referred to as a 'box'. Weird, eh ?



Well done, Gerti !!!

TA-DA....

You win 6 Frypoints... (runs)



AND an England team cricket ball !



Good stuff and CONGRATULATIONS.

Also thanks to everyone who took part. It was a bit of fun and you tried SO hard. Bless.

Now if any of you find yourselves sitting next to Stephen at a cricket match, you'll be watching the umpire and will know when to clap. When Stephen starts talking cricket, you'll be able to make some impressive and relevant remarks; so much so that Stephen will invite you into the Member's Bar to have a quiet drink with him.

Now I will stop going on about cricket !

Now I'm really excited to see this ep. I just finished a marathon youtube session catching up with season 2, and now I'm all ready to go. I understand cricket and everything!

'...seeing as aussies are great cricketers and all ...'

I couldn't agree more, Lily-Mae.

Er...may we have The Ashes back, please ?
