Erm...

"Two different music videos for the song were recorded, one featuring Basil with a backing band, and another featuring costuming and choreography inspired by cheerleader dance routines. Both versions were shot in 1981, while Basil was 37 or 38 years of age."

An entertaining novelty hit, but am I the only one who found these lines more than a little risqué?

The original version of the song had the genders reversed, it was called Kitty. I don’t know if that changes your view of those lines at all?
And for some reason they didn't think to check the rest of the lyrics to see if anything else needed rewriting to make it make sense.
I mean, it wouldn't have been too difficult to have it as something like;
So come on and give it to me anyway you can
Anyway you want to do it, give it to me, man

I expect though that 'Mickey' was probably an a-hole anyway.
He appears to have been responsible for a quite significant number of Ms Basils annoyances.

I'm aware of that, and just to check, I've just listened to Racey's version again. I'm not sure if my view of the lines has changed, but sung by Ms Basil, they're a bit more wink, wink...

Genuine incident - When taking part in a Health & Safety course at work on lifting heavy objects the trainer pointed to a large heavy box and said show me how would you move that? I promptly turned to my deputy and said "Jo will you pick that up and move it" (She did reply "He f******g would too!")

I was looking for scientific personality tests and instead I found this:

And at 8 seconds in.....Mike Myers in an appearance occurring before he got well known in Waynes World.
