Napper is an 18th century slang word for the head. Did you know that, or did you, like me, think it was a word for people who take naps?

Don't get caught napping and miss this free competition. If you use your napper and come up with something good enough to win, you'll have it recorded by a professional actor and made available on their website. Previously published work may be entered.

And here's a free to enter poetry competition.

And this is for Dr Who fans.

Nothing like throwing around some historical slang terms to mess with people's nappy heads!

Had a quick look at the Doctor Who comp - it ends on 30th June - but am unhappy about having to put in my e-mail's password along with my e-mail address: am I being thick? Surely if I put the password to my e-mail in, just about anyone who can even vaguely 'hack' could get into my system. I tried putting in a newly thought-up password but the computer seemed to know it wasn't the real thing and told me it was invalid! I repeat - am I just being thick?
I am SO unsavvy about technology!
Thanks for posting, Tosh!

I've always considered myself a dapper napper.

@ Alex - would I do that?

@ Celia - Are they not asking you to create a password for use on their site? If it's really your email password they're asking for, you'd be right not to give it to them.

@ Mac – That's accurate, I'm sure.

I did not know that. Thanks for the new word knowledge.
