My stepson, a graduate of Auckland বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় in Japanese and Mandarin languages , uses the catchphrase "I didn't know" when caught 'in flagrante delicto' whilst up to something not quite 'above board', অথবা things a gentleman might call 'not quite cricket".
I was told দ্বারা Jem Robert's লেখক of The Real History of the Blackadder that he'd never heard of Nagle, he quoted somethings from his book about Sir Ben ( sorry I've called আপনি Mr Ben up until today, what a faux pas) and Mr Curtis watched one episode of a Regency era drama of the early 1980s , and from that were able to create Edmund Blackadder...
