|06:41 am - BOOSHFIC: Get Foxed (NC-17) Howard/Vince, series 3, no spoilers|

This is a bit of a ramble, but bear with me, please.
In the wee small hours of this morning this fic of yours popped into my tired, warped brain but, for the life of me, I couldn't remember the title of it.
The thought crossed my mind that, knowing your love of puns, you'd called it 'The Crack Fox' and therefore I'd missed out on another layer of humour.
Then I thought about Series One and Howard as the 'fox bummer' . . . was the Crack Fox in Series Three their in-joke? The needles just a distraction?
I told you my brain was warped - well it was 2am.
Not sure why I felt compelled to tell you this apart from the fact that I think you appreciate the 'cleverness' of the layers of Noel and Julian's writing. This example may not however, be one of those layers.
(I'm actually relieved to find that it's called 'Get Foxed' as this is probably more acceptable & funnier!)
Thanks for listening.

No, you're right. Crack Fox. The fox up his crack. It all makes a horrible sense. I think Crack Fox would have been a funnier title too... although perhaps a bit gruesome, because it would have made me think of the needles.
I don't know though. Crack. Fox. Arrgh! It was perfect! Why didn't I see it?
I'll tell you something else - you know when Vince calls Howard a batty crease? I always thought it was just normal Boosh gibberish.
But then I found out that a 'batty boy' was like a bum bandit. So is a 'batty crease' actually your arse crack? Is Vince really calling Howard a big ol' arse crack?
There are layers within layers in the life of Howard Moon, colon explorer. (He'll bum you silly for loose change if you let him.)

You see - that's very impressive.
Give you half an idea and you come up with at least a dozen more. So many 'bumming' referrences.
And, yes. I always thought batty crease had 'dubious' connotations. It was very much frowned upon as an expression when I was growing up 'up t'north'. It wasn't till I was well into adulthood that the penny finally dropped!
I'm not from England, so I never really heard the term until the Boosh used it. So batty crease is real? Actually, now I come to think of it, I might have heard it on 'Last of the Summer Wine' too.
I looked it up in Urban Dictionary.
This crease in in one's buttocks is known as the 'Batty Crease'.
Ah, the internet. So good for learning the art of insults.
