Charley says: Splink

Apparently, the Green Cross Code, with its mantra of 'Stop, look, listen, think', was a bit too hard for 1970s kids to remember. Dolts. Oh hang on, I was one of those. 

So to help us dolts out, in 1976, the Green Cross Code recruited Jon Pertwee to teach us all the obviously far easier to remember mantra of 'SPLINK', which stood for (can you guess?) 'Stop at the Pavement, Look and listen, and If traffic is coming, let it pass. When No traffic is near, cross the road, but Keep looking and listening.'

There. Simple hey?

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
