For some reason, even though Joey Deacon was featured on Blue Peter quite a lot, the use of his name as an amusing insult seems to have been very much a Northern thing. I first heard it used when visiting friends in Leeds, then it slowly came northwards to here - but even then it didn't seem to catch on throughout the North East.

Maybe it just sounds best with a Yorkshire or North West ish accent...

Nah, it was rife at my school in Lancing, and you can't get much further south than that without getting very wet indeed.

The Joey thing was rife in Crowborough too, and I'm not that old. Funny you should mention it now, it was only two days ago I Googled Joey Deacon and came across this:

http://www.playgroundlaw.com/perl/browse.pl?sid=424

and this:

http://www.spleen.dsl.pipex.com/jd-modern.html

I wanted to have a look after seeing this:

http://www.tshirthell.com/store/product.php?productid=258

Because I could not remember for the life of me what Joey looked like, wondered if this was him.. Then remembered that Americans probably wouldn't know who he, or Blue Peter were!

Any way, just thought I'd share.

Amy - it was well before you were born BUT THAT IS NO EXCUSE! The kids in my school know all about it and call it each other all the time. They use it to refer to soeone who is like a mini slave for another. "Will you take these books back to 224 please, Sam?" "Ok Miss", says Sam. "AAAhhh YOU JOEY" shout his friends.

Back to word invention.

Intaxified (in - tax- ee - fye - d)

The strange smell of an over air freshened taxi, or rather the process of this happening.

It is wierd how all taxis smell the same. Must be the leather upholstery they always have mixed with the pinefresh things.
