plenisette, n. A wisp of cellophane that sticks to your hand no matter how hard you try to shake it off.
Because we really need to get some liff back in these forums.

dipple, v. To try to remove a sticky something from one hand with the other, thus causing it to get stuck to the other hand and eventually to anything else you try to remove it with.
Plenisette might not have been quite the right word the first time, since I'd somehow read "cellophane" as "cellophane tape". At least dipple also fits the bill.

kingston bagpuize, n. A forty-year-old, sixteen-stone man trying to commit suicide by jogging.

Perhaps Art's not 40 yet, but that just means he's not quite able to succeed at the suicide part. :p
