Thus, on Tuesday, Matthew Bannister, 'the Fat Controller' of Radio 1, paid tribute to Chris Evans. He might have meant to say that his contribution was enormous - "cannot be exaggerated", or he might have meant what his words actually meant - his contribution was zero. A slip or a truth? We should be told. And if it was a slip, was it Freudian or Mrs Malaprop? Les Dawson said his mother-in-law's gravestone carried the tribute "gone but not forgiven".
Post the best putdowns (Freudian, malapropian or word-playing) you know or have made up to: Exaggerated Evans, Features Department, The Independent, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL by last first-class collection today or by fax before tomorrow midday to 0171-293 2182.
The quality of the champagne for the best entry cannot be underestimated
