Cotton buds are boring. You should think about replacing them with novelty black victorian chimney sweep cotton buds.

There's no obvious reason, but it's making inexplicably good sense to me.

Or blow me a kiss, that's lucky too.

       Hooray for //novelty black victorian chimney sweep cotton buds.//   

       No kiss, but + for the idea.

       They could also be used to solve crimes, though I am not yet sure how.

       And, if you position enough of these buds at correct locations in your mouth, you too will be able to speak 'true' cockney, just like in "Maori Poarpens".

       That sounds, pretty much, like what the studio execs said when considering what to do with Dick van Dyke and his son...

       Admittedly this isn't entirely related to the original idea, [Jin], but my gerbils are strangely drawn to the clarinet section of 'Diagnosis Murder'.

       Hmmm. I'd get them to a vet, [Fishrat]. They might be suffering from that most terrible affliction of "Chachi-itis". The only treatment is to make them listen to the theme tune to Quincy.
