Does Cips, Kips or Kipper count as Barnes and whoever work their way up to the 1628 climax?
If so 83 times.

52.

And in the event of cancellation, I think it will be the electrician (Alec) who gets the blame this time. Or have they used that one before? :smt017

I used to do a similar thing when watching The Sweeney. How many times would they say the word “guv” in an episode? Sometimes it was getting up to three figures for an hour long episode. They really should remake it. Anyway:

Cipriani is a popular word in Adams Park so I will say 49.

I'm going low with 17. With the supposed exodus of Wasps players in todays newspapers (Haskell, Flutey, Palmer, Shaw etc) I think a bit more coverage will be divereted from Cips.
