Justin Edinburgh was called ‘Musselburgh’ because it’s just in Edinburgh

In retrospect I’m not sure that this works…

At school one of my group of friends (mistakenly) told another friend that he’d once pleasured himself whilst he was on a bus. From that point forth he was known as Top Deck. Still called it today, about 25 years after the fact.
