"When the temperature goes right up, and the weather is sizzlin' hot - Mister Adam, for his madam, is not..."

'Cos it's too. Darn. Hot.

... so much so, that I merely smiled, nodded politely, then got off at the wrong stop the other evening, instead of spearing with a harpoon, plunging a wax-seal knife into the neck, rushing with a speckled swamp adder, or even simply bidding a terse "Good day to you, sir", when targeted on the Tube by an utter nutcase jabbering on about how the same man created both Sherlock Holmes... and Conan The Barbarian.

'Tis a tad warm, but that's no excuse for not knowing that Holmes was created by Conan the Barbarian. No... Conan O'Brien. Edgar Allen Poe, I mean. What?
