No-one will probably remember this but centuries ago there was a radio panel show with Frank Muir & Dennid Norden called My Word with questions about the English Language.
At the end ofeach programme they would each be given a saying or proverb and by twisting it a bit came up with it's origin.
I thought we could do something similar in a more abbreviated way - newspaper headlines and stories.
I knocked up the follwing in about 10 minutes. Surprised it took so long eh?
A 6-piece group were playing some gigs. However 4 of them thought the other 2 weren't pulling their weight so they decided to kick them out.
The headline in the papers read “A third of the Band have been given the Push”.
(to explain - if I need to - "A bird in the Hand is worth Two in the Bush")
