On lunch at the commissary at Pinewood Studios:
"Prior to the lunch break each day, one of the carpenters or electricians would usually go down to the canteen to get a copy of the typed menu for the day, bring it back to the set for the crew to place their orders. On one particular day, an electrician produced the menu which offered: fried Spam and chips; cold Spam and salad, Rissoles and a couple of other items ... only the "R" on the old typewriter wasn't working correctly and instead printed as a "P".
"OK then," said the spark to the formidable canteen manageress. "We'll have three Spam and chips, four Pissoles and chips ..."
"What did you say?" she snapped.
"Four Pissholes ..."
"That is an R, an R – did you hear me?"
"Oh, sorry," he replied and without missing a beat continued with, "We'll have three Spam and chips and four R-soles and chips, please."
