Next question: D'you know what a coxed eight is? Well, there are boat races between colleges of various universities, e.g. between Oxford and Cambridge. The boat of a team sometimes has eight rowers and a cox; this is called a coxed eight.
Enough of this long 'foreplay'. What I actually wanted to tell you is this: There once was a boat race commentator for the Beeb - Howard Carpenter - who came out with this double-entendre in 1977:
Isn't that nice! The wife of the Cambridge president is kissing the cox of the Oxford crew.
Thank you, Howard!
