So what’s with the title? Quite a few were put forward but this one bubbled up to the top. It’s what Bruce said to Stuart when he first met him. Funny then and now. A reference to a Monty Python sketch ‘Bruces’ Philosophers song/Bruces’ song. The sketch was from 1970 but had been introduced into the USA in 1975 and was popular through most of the 80’s. There’s quite a bit of wiki info out there but if you want to watch the sketch itself go here:

Monty Python – The Bruce sketch
Original sketch about the Australian University of Woolloomooloo. It’s from series 2 (episode 22; recorded 25 September 1970)
