You Can't!

It was amusing to hear Naveen Andrews, on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, tell of his and Dominic Monaghan’s habit of exchanging Partridgisms between shoots, much to their co-stars’ bemusement.

I too work with a guy with whom in Partridge we have a common currency in comparison to the rest of our colleagues, due to age range rather than nationality. There’s something oddly satisfying in the confused looks the rest of the office shoot us when we complain that a cup of tea “is hotter than the sun”, good work is greeted with exclamations of “Spiceworld!” or we are just casually enquiring “smell my cheese?”

Not quite a Partridgism, but m' step-son is going through a phase of weaving the term 'cheese' into all manner of song lyric. Yesterday, it was during a reworking of Damien Rice' Cannonball.
