Scooch 3: The Horror, the Horror

Chippy brings us a shocking revelation in his comment on my previous post. It seems that the name of our flag-flying band at the Eurovision Song Contest has seven possible meanings, none of them likely to delight the parents of their burgeoning teenage fan base. Chippy is especially concerned about number 7, as, indeed, am I. Naughty pop and rock names have a venerable tradition - 10cc, The Sex Pistols and Axl Rose all have, shall we say, hidden meanings. But some of the possible meanings of Scooch make the Pistols look like The Partridge Family. And, of course, subverting the dewy innocence of the ESC in this way is an outrage. Somebody should write to the Daily Mail before it is too late.


  1. Don't be coy,what does it mean???

  2. Have you never heard of mega-bands "Pearl Jam" or "Third Eye Blind"? If I had my teenage rocker here, I could get her to name ten more with similar, hardly hidden meanings.....

  3. It's always puzzled me anyway that the female genitalia are susceptible to infection from yeast, a constituent of bread. I mean, it's not as if the scrotum can suffer a flour infection.

    And does this mean that one could add flour and water to such an infected example of the female genitalia, leave to bake for a while, and then obtain some bread as the final product?

  4. As in having a bun in the oven?

    Hang your head in shame and go back to the measurement problem in quantum mechanics.

    Without any supper.
