    Just been listening to a few old radio shows on a webcast and heard a name *and a language* I haven't heard in years.

    If the title of the thread hasn't given it away it's Stanley Unwin. The creater of Unwinese.

    Just hearing a little bit of it sends me into fits of laughter.

    However - having found www.stanleyunwin.com which has some clips of him in full swing on it I'm one of the happiest people around at the moment.

    Sadly though - he died in 2002 so the only exposure some people will have to him language is through comedians like Hugh Dennis who speak fluent Unwinese...well...kind of...

    Anyway - does anyone know of anywhere that I can learn Unwinese?
    Think it would be a cool thing to put on my CV.
    Speaks a second language fluiently: Unwinese :D

    But I'll leave the final words to Stanley himself....

    No - He's the ex-BBC Engineer who spoke Unwinese *Or gobbledegook as some call it*

    He played one of the royal aides in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - he doesn't get much to say but from what I recall the little bits he does say were mostly Unwinese. :D
