At which point you lean as hard as you can against the poor victim, up against a wall or if in the middle of the tennis courts (or whatever) lean and sort of keep leaning as they try to get away from you.

They're 32 and 29 respectively and have lots of friends... honest. (ed: and why would we disbelieve you - tho it amazes me sometimes what passes for humour out in the real world.) John says he was using PLP to mean a combination of Proper Looking Person and Public Leaning Post back in 1955 - so I've amended the date to suit. And Susan used PLP as elementary age child in 1950's. It was interchangable with Private Leaning Post, especially if the person being leaned upon was your friend/victim). (ed: Magnus sent in a joke... of sorts... along the same lines) Ask your victim, "Are you a benny tied up?" They cannot admit they are a benny, so they say, "no." You then shriek, "Benny on the loose! Benny on the loose!"

mattress man means: Term denoting a particularly egregious form of wanker, At school during the summer they would leave the fire exit door at the end of the dining hall open for ventilation. Through it you could see the fire escape for one of the boarding houses. This house (North 'A') was traditionally known for its sexual deviancy (eg amongst its members it was prized to be invited to join the Ginger Pubes Club). One summer evening during the second sitting of dinner a commotion was caused as large numbers of diners were congregating by the door in awful fascination at the sight on the North 'A' fire escape. PD (who's name I finally removed - also used interchangeably with the more generic "Mattress Man"), having eaten in the first sitting had retired to the fire escape for a quick one off the wrist. In the throes of passion he chanced upon a discarded mattress leaning against the wall in the fire escape and vented his passions upon it fairly vigorously. Apart from half the school witnessing this so did most of the teachers who had to come over to see what was causing the commotion in the dining hall. Subsequently even they called him Mattress Man. Needless to say he left the school soon after. This was at The Leys in Cambridge.
