TheWife and I came of age in the late 80s. Yes, puffy hair; denim; all-brown outfits of velvet, corduroy and desert boots were ours to have, music like the Fine Young Cannibals was ours to listen to and, for me at least, the seminal most oft-quoted movie of my high school years was Lethal Weapon II.
As for seminal teev, The Young Ones was our bread and butter. We may not have got alot of it, but man we quoted it.
Now, as adults, with a young squirmy boy, occasionally we pepper our parenting with lore from our past.
One such thing is Snot Patrol.
Snot Patrol is when theNoo has, as my older brother describes it "Housing Commission Nose", where thick goobs of snot are heading on a slow passage south, like pioneering snails striking out to settle the south west of the garden. When he is seen with snot a'hangin' we sing out to him 'Snot patrol, snot patrol' and he (hopefully) comes a runnin' - and, as he does, he counter sings back 'doo doo'.
Where is it from?
The theme to Nozin' Aroun' from The Young Ones.
