      Ace mate, while I applaud your choice I think it would have made a greater impact if you had been able to articulate your thoughts in ENGLISH rather than, perhaps, Glaswegian? Over 'ere, a wide-boy is a male child of rather large girth, and the gee-gees were three British brothers who could sing like three women sopranos. Personally I don't see how either of these terms can apply to Dennis Waterman, who is known to his friends as either 'the skipper' or 'Tewl.'

      Cheers,
      Dan.

      Wide Boy


      Gee-Gees
      So long as men worship the Caesars and Napoleons, Caesars and Napoleons will duly rise and make them miserable.

        Wide Boy


        Gee-Gees
        Wide boy (Cockney) = One who always has some grubby, little money/power scheme on the back-burner.

        Gee-gees = Horses - tends to mean one who bets heavily on them (legal in the UK, but often taken to excess).
        Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

          "New Tricks" is the only one I've seen of the three, But wife and I enjoy it immensely.
