It just goes to show that you can never tell how people are going to interpret things. We've just had a bloke wandering around in our area asking if anyone can help him with “Skippy”.
I was ready to have him shipped off to the funny farm on the spot, but after questioning it seems he wants to use it to talk to Dennis. Dennis (or, “Dinnus”, as he's known around here) is one of the blokes from work who's from New Zealand, and is in New Zealand at the moment.
The penny therefore dropped that “skippy” was actually Skype.
