    A Wee Biege Jobby

    As I find myself back in Scotland due to the passing of my father, Iíve been reminiscing about the things that used to make me laugh. Now, as Iím here with my wife who originates from Thailand, I really want to play the clip of Billy Connolly talking about his unfortunate encounter with the wee biege jobby on the train as I suspect my wife is the only thai person in the world who knows what jobby actually means. Unfortunately, it appears that this clip is unavailable online, so I need recommendations as to where I can find it .

    I realize that this is an extremely juvenile request and I apologize if the word jobby offends anyone.

    Is that the one where he tries to batter it to death with paper towels?

    Was the wee beige jobby not a jobby found on an aircraft? The Billy Connolly sketch discussed the "jobby wheecher", the toilet apparatus used to wheech the jobby out the aircraft?

    It is one of the finest ever comedy routines.



    Edit - just been listening to this again, and it is definitely this one.

    Yep, goes from the plane toilet situation to discussing a train toilet, which is where the wee beige Jobby is discussed

    Hopefully it doesn't get pulled by youtubes totalitarian copyright protection.

    Thank you so much, but it was blocked before I could view it. I understand copyright protection, but Youtube are taking things too far nowadays.
