7 Devilishly Daft Sayings

Eevee’s Miriam Sallon has put together a list of  idiotic idioms and silly sayings. ‘Make no bones about it’, it’s time to ‘gird your loins’ and take a peek at this lot… Holy moly we talk a lot of rubbish. Statistically, more than 45% of what we say is regurgitated from old sayings and clichés. That’s not true, I made it up. But it could be!

Eevee catches up with two-time EPT champ and all-round goddess, Victoria Coren-Mitchell, to discuss all things poker… Winning an EPT is a remarkable achievement, something that furnishes the CV of only 98 poker players. To win twice however, is a unique accomplishment and statistically speaking borders on the impossible. What makes two-time champ Victoria Coren-Mitchell’s recent win in San Remo – where she added to her 2006 triumph in London to stand alone in the record books – all the more mind-boggling is that she isn’t a pimply-faced math-freak who breaks into a sweat if away from a table...
