Phil's got a way with words

Oh dear Phil Peverley! Artistic licence has caught you out and you have been verbally bashed by a professor. I sentence you to be screened with the largest sigmoidoscope available. But I still love you. On the subject of verbal tics, a 50-year-old used the word 'cool' repeatedly. I pointed out the maximum age for the C word was 25 and he got very upset.

Dr John Barrett, Belvedere, Kent
