Can you believe they wiped this?

On j4's LJ, I used the phase 'whom God preserve,of Utrecht' in connection with Mr Snips (whom God preserve, of Utrecht). This prompted a comment by venta, which prompted me to look up the phrase on Wikipedia which yielded http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_of_Beachcomber (which I did not know, though there was a Radio 4 thing with Richard Ingrams which I think I have a cassette of somewhere, possibly) and in particular "Odd inventions explained by Dr. Strabismus (whom God preserve) of Utrecht (Spike Milligan with a high quavering German accent)."
