OT: All this time I thought it was Colonel Needham!

Now I learn he was never part of the Armed Forces, and it's short for Colin! I have known many a Colin here in Canada, but not one of them was a "Col," or a Colonel either, for that matter. Is this odd or is it a common nickname in the UK? Sort of like in the UK an "Anthony" is called "Ant." They're all called "Tony" Where I live.


That's right! You're about to be killed by a zamboni!

Its not you, its him; all this time he has been bigging himself up, like he was this important Colonel in charge of the boards, and then suddenly his mask slips, the boards are closing down and his true self is revealed - he's just another wanker called Colin!

It's not unlike learning the Wizard of Oz was just some Jerk behind a curtain.

He added the 'el'

I thought the same very early on. I believe it is fairly common.

Donald Trump is the weak man's vision of a strong man.

You mean a fairly common name or fairly common to mistake him for being a colonel?

Re: OT: All this time I thought it was Colonel Needham!

Common nickname for Colin. Maybe some UKers can chime in.

Donald Trump is the weak man's vision of a strong man.

Yeah, it has a very WASPy sound to it.

I find the Needs Ham component far more troubling.
