Re: Airtight alibi

'Ironclad: A 19th century warship with armour plating... used particularly of such ships during the civil war'.

Oxford Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.

So, ironclad has a nautical history whether said of an alibi or of anything else.

Re: Dishes are very tasty

In my opinion, to say that her dishes are tasty directly after referring to her big breasts makes it sound like a double entendre. I would go with another form, unless Jennifer has a great sense of humour.

Re: Bloody Royals

There is the argument that the royals pay their way via monies the country makes in tourism. Does that mean we should have Jack the Ripper knighted?

Re: food memory

I always associate tangerines with childhood Christmases, as I got them in my stocking. We couldn't usually afford them at the time.
