"Wobberjib Whammerjib"

Wobberjib Whammerjib - 'Splodgy' James' next door neighbour in Watford (who was a little bit crazy by all accounts) used to call bacon sandwiches wobberjib whammerjibs.

Wobberjib - Sausage
Whammerjib - Sandwich

Sadly we don't know the actual reasoning or origin behind this term. However the "Wobberjib Whammerjib" has become a family tradition of the Jones family.

Algorithm - al·go·rithm [al-guh-rith-uhm]

noun a set of rules for solving a problem in a finite number of steps, as for finding the greatest common divisor.

1699, from Fr. algorithme refashioned (under mistaken connection with Gk. arithmos "number") from O.Fr. algorisme "the Arabic numeral system," from M.L. algorismus, a mangled transliteration of Arabic al-Khwarizmi "native of Khwarazm," surname of the mathematician whose works introduced sophisticated mathematics to the West (see algebra). The earlier form in M.E. was algorism (c.1230), from O.Fr. Modern use of algorithmic to describe symbolic rules or language is from 1881.

How else do you illustrate Algorithm!? (Interrobang) I know, its just so funny!

Her·maph·ro·dite. In zoology and botany, a hermaphrodite is an organism that possesses both male and female sex organs during its life. In many species, hermaphroditism is a common part of the life-cycle, particularly in some asexual animals and some plants. Generally, hermaphroditism occurs in the invertebrates, although it occurs in a fair number of fish, and to a lesser degree in other vertebrates. On very rare occasions, such a hermaphrodite can even impregnate itself, but this will result in complications.

Some readers may recognize this example of Hermaphrodism:
