My Word! was one of the most popular programmes on radio and this 1980 edition of the best punning stories was released for the show's twenty-fifth anniversary. Each story purports to explain a well-known phrase or quotation - but with a twist: such as Nordern's allegation that he was kidnapped by an Arab gentleman to be his personal story-teller (beware of sheiks sharing lifts) and a mix up over breakfast cereal with a breakdown in communication (There's Furries at the bottom of the carton, rather than fairies at the bottom of the garden). A lot of fun and ingenuity.
