It seems that it was your very clarity of expression ("I don't fancy you enough... you're a munter") is what got you in trouble!

When the Bonzo Dog Band was touring the States by bus, Viv Stanshall wearing a pair of trousers fashioned from green hotel towels and the rest of the band looking like freaks and oddballs, they were pulled over by a policeman:

"Have you boys got any drugs?"

No, goodness no, they replied.

"Are you carrying any guns, any knives?"

No, no, officer.

"Then how do you expect to defend yourselves?!" asked the incredulous officer.

"With good manners!" replied Stanshall.
