    What do you call a group of Cyclops? Cyclopses? Cyclopi? I apologise for the banality of this. I would Twitter it but... I'll Twitter it.

    Any more of this Fearqus, and I'll whip you off to Spec Savers.... Then start reciting " There's a one-eyed yellow idol, lying south of Katmandu etc. etc. "

    Also, in passing, quite sure the plural of Cyclops is Cyclopod.

    I thought the idol was to the North of Katmandu and isn't pod singular as in gastropod pod meaning one footed?

    Big fan of nonesense right here!

    I was so thrilled to find out that more than one thesaurus are thesauri. Does that make thesauri a synonym for superfluous?

    I should write for Radio 4 me. As opposed to just to them...

    And of course, in answer to the original thread, we must refer to that great tome, written by Norman, the first of the Cyclops, which is of course, the Ncyclopedia.

    While we're here, does anyone know the collective term for horses, and also for pigs? I'm sure it's not a herd...?x
