In WWII there was a common idiom ‘Loose lips sink ships’ meaning one should avoid careless talk as it may prove useful to the enemy. The focus of our picture never quite got the gist of this though. He’s something of a gossip and will, without doubt, repeat what you’ve told him to all and sundry as soon as your back is turned. In fact, most times he won’t even wait he’ll just shout it out parrot-like so every one in the vicinity can hear your tales of misery and woe. That said he is a very good friend in most other cases, totally selfless and as faithful as a swan. Just don’t tell him anything you don’t want the entire world to know…
