    They nearly all are, but we do get the occasional mess up that just ruins the video, so we have to start again. This happens maybe once or so during the month of a competition.

    In this instance, I was shaking the chassis to mix up the names when a load of tickets flew out the top and in my surprise I used a mild swear word. I carried on for about 2 seconds thinking "it's okay, I'll bleep it out", but then I did a much worse swear word as a I mentally castigated myself for the first transgression. Fearing a potty mouthed snowball of vernacular expletives would ensue if we continued, I just decided to quit there and start again. It would probably have been an amusing video, but not really in keeping for the image of a company supplying to all tiers of education.

    EDIT - I'm not changing the way I sing it (sure, I sing that song. So what?), I like my version better.

    Oh the temptation for some casual racial steretyping around terrorists and various cultural incarnations of Billy Ray Cyrus. I will be the bigger man and resist.

    Yeah, I get that now.

    Thanks for bursting my bubble and pulling the foundations upon which my world is built out from under me and waking me up smelling of coffee gathering moss on a rainy day (makes my soul, makes my soul, trip trip trip away-ay-ay).

    @VeryPC Al obviously has genocidal rather than suicidal tendencies.

    If we're going to go down the route of mnishead song lyrics, I am required by statute to post this video by Adam Buxton (off of Adam & Joe).
