            This ad generated one of the more bizarre complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority (decision 06/288 ).

            The Complainant, whose name was “Manus” said the use of the word which indicated that Jeff was a fool, had caused him considerable embarrassment.

              Thanks Super Dad. So its actually a name! (Found on wikipedia) "Manus, a masculine first name derived from the Latin meaning "hand" and, less commonly, a "band of men"

              The complaint you mentioned reminds of a similar one made about "Louey the fly"

                Manus was a common "insult between mates" in my teens, along with "Wot-are-ya?"
