Audley Bowdler WilliamsonBorn 28 Feb 1916; died 21 Nov 2004 at age 88.British inventor and manufacturer of skin-care products who invented Swarfega hand cleaner, a green jelly that mechanics, printers and others use to wash grease, grime, and ink from their hands. "AB," as he was known, started his company, Deb Ltd., in 1941, selling a mild detergent to treat silk stocking, a market which collapsed with the arrival of nylons after WW II. However, he knew that mechanics cleaned their hands with petrol, paraffin and sand which was effective at removing oil, but also caused dry skin and dermatitis. He adapted his detergent formula to clean oil from skin without these side effects, and named it by combining "swarf" (term for greasy grit) and "-ega" (eager). By the time he retired, the company had 20 brands.«

"I'm having a baby," she replies.
"Is the baby in your stomach?" he asks, with his big eyes.
"Yes, it is," she says.
"Is it a good baby?" he asks, with a puzzled look.
"Oh, yes. A really good baby," the lady replies.
Shocked and surprised, he asks: "Then why did you eat him?"
