Perhaps one for older readers, but a correspondent to the excellent Phil White show on Radio Humberside contributed this anecdote concerning the eccentric Mr. Stanshall and excitable Mr. Moon.
One day in the 60s, the duo went into a fashion shop in Carnaby Street and asked the assistant if they had any strong trousers.
Somewhat nonplussed the assistant replied that yes, all of their trousers were strong - and being so assured was sent off to get a pair or two.
On receipt of the trews, our heroes took a leg each and pulled as hard as possible. They agreed with the assistant that they were indeed strong. However, on continued pulling, one leg came asunder from the other.
At which point the duo declared the trousers weren't strong enough and decided to leave the shop. The assistant complained that now she had an unsaleable item -to which Viv replied "of course not - a one-legged chap could walk in, and they'd be just the thing!"
Having said this, they marched out of the shop and down the street - where they met up with the one-legged bloke they'd set this stunt up with just a few minutes earlier.
Viv and Keith then took great pleasure peering through the window to observe the reaction of the shop assistant as their Long John Silver look-alike buddy calmly entered the shop and made his inevitable request....
They don't make pop stars like that any more.....
