Heard today on I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue - Radio 4

For those not in the UK this is a fun radio show where the panel think of silly things - as below:

Discussion - Not dat cushion
Nantucket - What happened to your grandfather's virginity
Descant - Like a worker ant, only more on the administrative side
Crackling - A tiny, little bum
Elongate - Another scandal involving Mr. Musk
Parasol - An annoying sky diver
Maintain - Big, posh hill
Ransom - I didn't walk all the way - jogged a bit
Aspergers - Rectal laxatives
Splayed - A drunk shovel
Titular - A vampire who gets on everyone's nerves

And my favourite ever:
Scrotum - Nutcase
