Something for the weekend then, and in no small part was this influenced by a Friday afternoon discussion in the office, honest. Starting with the more obvious fruit related film titles (Clockwork Orange, Herbie goes Bananas, and so on), we progressed onto more “pun-ific” suggestions, the best of which was:    Last mango in Paris Can you better it?

I took years of lessons and specialised in latin dancing, specifically the tango.
