Reade crashes out of BMX medals - at last, the term is being used correctly!
Is it just me or does today's quote of the day sound like a threat? Surely he should have offered to get his staff to "get back" to the questioner, not "get" them. Perhaps it's time they got their coat?

I have to disagree with Matt (Thursday's letters). I think it would be perfect if all dumped plastic was marked with the name of the person who dumped it - so that it could be returned to them when found polluting some pristine waterway. That would mess up a few front-doorsteps...

In the Magazine Monitor Olympics, is there a medal in the offing for the BBC news story that inspires the most letters about nominative determinism? Because my money's on this one.

Re Police top misheard lyrics chart. Does anyone else hear the line in Englishman in New York, "I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien" as "I'm an alien, I'm an evil alien." The song had a completely different meaning to me when I was growing up.

Well, PM throws another gauntlet down on the gender question, but we're definitely back to the straight female/gay male hypothesis after today's admissions. I particularly admired the Queer as Folk quote shortly after the wife meltdown.
Sorry about the pettifogging, but surely economic growth is either at zero, or the economy is at a standstill?
Sorry everyone - I know there is a campaign towards a moratorium on nominative determinism but I couldn't let this story go by unnoticed!
I can't believe that Wake up little Snoozy isn't among the top ten mondegreens. Just me then?

Re Tim, London (Thursday's letters). It would seem that the random stat is doing no more than it suggests, by randomly appearing and displaying a stat, albeit it's not in the control of MM. Perhaps it's the phantom random stat.

Between us, my husband and I have three nationalities - Chinese, American and British - and therefore a tally of 94 golds, 62 silver, and 67 bronzes. But since we're both dual nationals and between us constitute half a Chinese, half an American and half a British person, do we have to divide the medals as well? Or can we still claim all the glory?

Help me, I've got irony overload! Data about criminals may have fallen into the hands of... criminals.
Our small office of one Brit, one American, two Chinese, one South Korean, five Japanese, two Indonesians and one Malaysian, make up our Olympic winning combination which totally owns Sophie of London (Wednesday's letters). Hand over those golds (113), silvers (80) and bronzes (85)... so there!
