There has developed a whole string of them (which I only heard of a year or two back, and I can only remember two of them (besides, being squaddie humour they are probably unsuitable for a family website):

 

Black with no sugar is a Whoopie (Goldberg, black, nun, geddit?)

 

White with no sugar is a Julie (Andrews: see how it works now?)

But surely just because you've never seen one, it doesn't mean it was never done, does it ??

Well we are not prejudice, everyone gets the *** ripped out of them. Catweazle is sorry he missed me, so I'll ride the bike slower next time and give him a better aiming mark. :-D

Hello CW I've kept out of the thread but let me know when you want me to reveal all.

 

Bertie, do you know where that picture was taken? It looks like the front of a Humber 1-Ton Truck. Bit unusual to see the jerrycan on the front.

The front radiator grill is an excellent place to stow your water can, usual or not.

 

The Bernoulli effect sucking air over the can creates a strong cooling effect, producing refreshingly cool drinking water whatever the ambient temperature. In cool but non-freezing temperatures, our Series 3 Land Rover FFRs could easily produce solid ice in this way.

Aieoplanes fly because of him. There was one of those TVshows, by the one with the glasses and bike Adam Hart Davies, he had a spiral of copper tube with compressed air going through that produced ice, when played over a cup of water.
