You older readers of mine disappointed me. Don't you remember Horace Rumpole responding il sotto to Hilda when she complained about not having enough money? I am guessing but something like 'the money all gets spent on Vim on the High Street.'
Ever since, R and I have used Vim, as Horace did, as a collective noun for household cleaners. Eg: Shopping shouldn't cost too much this week. We don't need any Vim.
Nevertheless, although no one got the Rumpole reference, your responses were interesting.
