GuyBarry posted in the wrong thread in the first place, presumably by mistake.

It wasn't a mistake, it was a joke! I don't really think The Orange One has got Woking in his pocket...

Never mind.

I've just read today's daytime posts and thought your cross-thread Woking/working pun was very amusing. Mind you, I thought my habits/hobbits comment was too :D

And obviously it also works as the straightforward cross-thread Woking joke, so perhaps I'm inferring the added pun element myself :oops:

Well thank you very much, but it wasn't mine, it was The Orange One's! (If you mean the one at the start of the "Where am I? UK Stations #2" thread.)
