Famous marshal phrases

Ive had many a discussion with folks on the bank regarding phrases we use regularly on the bank...mostly humorous and often sarcastic. I've decided to be brave enough and start a thread, to see how many, or few, people contribute!

I will attempt to kick it off with:

"It's gone quiet...anyone got any pork pies left?"

Or

"Where's he going?"

Just the usual ones. " you can't park there", " I don't think you meant to do that", " that's not good" , "whoops". And our old favourite on our post......" Mustn't Grumble" !

And I forgot the Observer's cry........what exactly happened there lads!

I have a stock phrase when writing out a Post Chiefs report after a multi-car incident where perhaps I didn't see everything, it goes like this, 'car 1 hit car 2, in the ensuing melee', I find the phrase 'in the ensuing melee' gets me out of most sticky situations, also if we are talking about religion and I haven't a clue what is going on, the retort I use is, 'that would be an ecumenical matter' again gets me out of most problems.....

Bladders......

Another couple of phrases regularly shouted to passing cars is simply 'Wrong' or 'Christ that was quick'......

I didn't even get the Arch Bishop job despite having my own mitre (which was actually a turned inside out Sainsburys bag, but at least the colour was right) - humph...

I still like Bill's "Ah, he's on his breaking down lap" as someone goes past in obvious trouble!

Missed gear changes get "there's one in there somewhere".

I have to stop myself using Brundle's famous "ran out of talent" comment for the simple reason that although it's funny, I wouldn't get very far in a racing car. I know my place, and it's not in the driving seat!

I have a very long list which I won't reveal here - I'm thinking of publishing a book on it and presenting to new marshals :-)

"Keep it on the black, not the green"

Any statement involving the word "quiet" tends to cause mayhem...but that may just be me!
