    After a random debate about the name of the remote control for the tv at euphiwoo's house with Bazza. We couldn't decide what the remote was called. We were all confused when Bazza asked where the handset was! So folks, what is it really?????

    FLICKER???? Those with poor eyesight (like me) might have to double check what that really says, particularly if the 'L' and the 'I' are very close together.....

    Alternative descriptions...

    Remote controller - how some bandspersons describe their conductor/s.
    Zapper - A common mis-spelling of a famous and unorthodox American rock musican who lived from 1940-1993.
    Handset- How those protusions on the end of your arms look
    Dibber - An accusatory remark by a drunk person aimed at someone believed to be telling lies.
    Telly Changer - What you are likely to be if your existing telly packs up.
    Flicker - What a bogey becomes after it's ended up on the opposite side of the room to where it was originally picked.

    How about..

    The television (and possibly video and DVD) operational control device.

    Well, it's long winded but accurate, surely?

    It's a sky mote in our house....when we can find it that is. It has several nicknames though, usually centred around the fact it's always getting flippin' lost!
