    The cream of society = thick, rich and full of clots.....

    Well, they do say that the old ones are, in fact, the old ones.

    On a serious note I think in the last few years cream generally as risen to the top. Whether that’s because of luck or design is another question.

  9. I thought it was 'when the heat is on, the scum rises to the top'.
  10. I have always wondered about this saying. Most normal people have shite that sinks like a stone otherwise you could never flush the damn stuff away.

    Only strange people who eat "roughage" have bouyant sh1t and they are not the sort of people who should be allowed to make up pithy sayings.
  11. TAFKAP reliably informed us, "Cream, get on top".

    Moreover he said, "Cream sha-boogie bop" but I may have misheard.
  12. Are you bored this morning mate?
  13. Honesty is the best policy - discuss that one!
  14. The advert I just got at the bottom of the page is titled "Military Discharges".

    Is there a connection?
  15. Cream rises to the top, but it is the first to get eaten by scavenging birds as they peck through the golden foil lid on the milkbottle.

    Much akin to 'Eagles may soar, but sheep don't get sucked into jet engines'.
