Makes me think of the Fast Show!

What did I say Roy?
You said you could shit through the eye of a needle.
No I did not Roy.

Nay sorry. If its a family name can you not use as middle name?

I quite like Roy, but I have a friend who, when considerably inebriated, likes to yell at people "ROY THE BOY!" Nobody knows who Roy the boy is.

No, nor reg either

ShadeofViolet Thu 01-Aug-13 22:06:01

Awful, sorry.

Where I used to work we had to have aliases and the office jerk chose Roy.

Allalonenow Thu 01-Aug-13 22:07:10

Nay nay nay

Casmama Thu 01-Aug-13 22:08:34

No - it makes me think of Roy from eastenders

DamnDeDoubtance Thu 01-Aug-13 22:11:10

What about Royston.

Bowlersarm Thu 01-Aug-13 22:14:05


Roy doesn't sound like a cool teen. Roy doesn't sound like a trendy 20 something. He doesn't sound like a popular 30 year old family man.

He sounds a bit like a retired 70 year old!
