Members of Gopsi are often found to be Russian around trying to avoid mentions of the "Rushin' to Russian" "joke", and ukraine-not believe how irk(utsk)ed they get by the continual feeble puns Ivan urge to make. The other important thing about Russian was the "uiuiuuouoooiiii" noise Mr Honeybourne used to make. I think he was going to be sick, or perhaps he'd just caught a glimpse of Mrs Cheale, and so was spontaneously ejaculating. Mrs Cheale used to be a member of sixties pop group the Shangri-Las, playing motor-cycle on many of their greatest hits.
