Your Letters

17:07 UK time, Friday, 6 June 2008

Regarding the Chinese having to teach people how to clap (Beijing approves Olympics 'cheer'); if only we could get them to sing the chorus to Queen's We Will Rock You at the same time, it would be wonderful.
Steve W, Southampton, UK

I saw six cars flying the England flag today. Two points to these car owners a) England are not in Euro 2008 and b) your petrol consumption will increase.
Helen, Leicester

Was Kevin Rudd driving the porcelain bus to that ever-popular destination, "Not In Service"?
Nigel Macarthur, London, England

Regarding Alexandra "famous in her home town of Croydon" De-Gale (Big Brother launch attracts 5.4m). I've never heard of her.
Michael Hall, Croydon, UK

Does it count as reverse nominative determinism that the spokesman for the UN children's agency should be James Elder? And surely such a talented bunch of flexicographers as Monitor readers should be able to come up with a snappier phrase than "reverse nominative determinism"?
Adam, London, UK

Actually Stuart Taylor (Thursday's letters), you can divide by zero, the same as you can multiply by it, there's just not much point.
Helen, Luxembourg

Stuart Taylor, impressing the ladies by baffling them with mathematical equations? I'm much more won over by the men claiming to be Mourhino. Yes please!
Felicity, Cheltenham

Please tell Ian C of Kent (Thursday's letters) that I don't understand the question. I do respond to "darling" though (and, being a Northerner, to "love").
Pix6, Vienna, Austria

(Red faced) I just got it - it's a pun on Pi. I gave up maths after I scraped through it at O-level.
Pix6, Vienna

Re Archbishop skydives for soldiers. Great achievement, now can someone tell me why he's wearing a traffic cone on his head?
Stuart, Croydon

Stuart Taylor of Bromley says "I hate to nitpick" (Thursday's letters). You're reading the wrong blog, mate...
Tim Barrow, London, UK
