Yes I am that thick. There's another one blush and he's old and doesn't play keyboards.

What about Dr Fox?

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Tue 12-Feb-13 19:50:09

I've never heard of Professor Green.

Does he have a dodgy lip job along with Professor Cox?

Soaccidentprone, are you working up to tell me that actually, in fact, in all honesty, Doc-doc-doc-doc Doctor Beat [won't you help me Doctor Beat] is in reality, not a doctor at all?

blush Now I am just pure affronted at my thickness.

WHO Mrs Rajesh are you referring to? Dr Fox or my DH. Offence is taken [hoists bra straps and sniffs vehemently]

I have no idea, I haven't looked at DH's lips in yonks. (Since his hair was stolen)

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Tue 12-Feb-13 19:56:59

I was asking about Professor Green. Still don't know who he is.

Professor Cox may have had a lip job - possibly from the same surgeon Pete Burns uses.

Not talking about your DH, you can put your tits back down.

Is Professor Plum a real academic?

Punch and Judy men are traditionally called Professor.
Perhaps science communication is his second foray into the entertainment industry.

I can't stand up I have a uti/kidney infection I think. It hurts to laugh. Could you lot please stop it. At once. Forthwith. grin

springlamb Tue 12-Feb-13 20:01:45

I think Professor Green may be the bloke who lives in Cluedo.

No, that's Professor Plum actually.

No idea at all.

Check this out, it's hilarious. Will make you giggle at Brian Cox...

MechanicalTheatre Tue 12-Feb-13 20:04:06

OP, I still don't really understand what you thought.

Did you think they just called him Professor Brian Cox...I dunno, for a joke? As a nickname? Why?

Enquiring minds need to laugh know.

linspins Tue 12-Feb-13 20:05:11

hmmm, try again.

linspins Tue 12-Feb-13 20:05:50

Ok, link doesn't like me!!
Look at "wonders of the stoner system" on youtube.

freddiemisagreatshag Tue 12-Feb-13 20:06:09

I didn't realise there was another Brian Cox. I didn't know why they always said "professor" and didn't just call him Brian Cox I thought he was a pretentious fucker, like someone who always has to be called Sir someone

I am that thick. blush

freddiemisagreatshag Tue 12-Feb-13 20:06:32

And Brian and Professor Brian and assorted wives if you are reading I am very very sorry.

MySpecialistSubjectIsMN Tue 12-Feb-13 20:07:58

Professor Cox is a professor due to his work on the hadron collider.

He was also in D:ream.

Weirdly I'm not a fan.

freddiemisagreatshag Tue 12-Feb-13 20:09:20

I feel a n/c coming on blush

MechanicalTheatre Tue 12-Feb-13 20:10:05

But did you think he wasn't actually a professor?

TunipTheVegedude Tue 12-Feb-13 20:10:32

OMG he's 44 shock

I thought he was about 31.

freddiemisagreatshag Tue 12-Feb-13 20:11:35

I don't really know I just thought he was so up himself he wanted to be called professor all the time.

God I hope his wife isn't on here.

Tweasels Tue 12-Feb-13 20:11:52

MySpecialistSubjectIsMN. I read that as HARDON collider grin

Panzee Tue 12-Feb-13 20:12:31

Dr Fox is not a fox, no.

cakesonatrain Tue 12-Feb-13 20:12:36

Professor Brian Cox is not an astronomer/astrophysicist. He's a particle physicist.

And he has a funny face!

I have seen the Professor Green chap on Blue Peter. I think he was a rapper.
