was on the Clive Anderson show, and made some comment about the others
present having so much more life-experience, or something like that.
Clive asked her, are you saying we're all old? And while she was
spluttering (that _is_ what she'd meant, though with no malice), Clive
(who wasn't at all offended) said something about it being Geri and the
