Room 101
 
Right, just dawned on me that there are many, many things I would put into Room 101.

Please offer your suggestions (no, it can't be me) and we should collectively agree or disagree.

First:

Mushrooms.
They're rank. They're fungal, they're not even nice looking, they grown on the floor, they don't belong in any meal really, they offer very little in terms of pleasantry either as flavour or a 'thing'. They come in pies, which frankly should just be steak or chicken, not steak & (unless it's ale).

Mushrooms aren't even clean. For example, The FDA allows 19 maggots and 74mites in every 3.5 ounce can off mushrooms in the USA. Who the fudge wants that?

Anyone who drives a Nissan Tiida or Toyota Yaris with AD plates - clearly a cheap rental and someone who does not care about any other road user.

Hmm....

Guinness is rank and belongs to Room 101.

The entire State of Qatar.

Indian restaurants where there's 30 waiters running amok like a Charlie Chaplin film.

From George Orwell's novel 1984, it's the basement torture chamber in the Ministry of Love, in which the Party attempts to subject a prisoner to their own worst nightmare, fear or phobia, with the object of breaking down their resistance.

And also a light hearted show on UKTV starring (currently) Frank Skinner.

It's a show where celebrities come and put two or three things into room 101 (to never be seen again). I never found it funny.


Fun fact, basic 101 is a reference to the college course numbering system. Although there is some variation among the universities, generally speaking, the first number indicates the year level (1 meaning freshman, 2 meaning sophomore), the 0 indicates entry level (as in the lowest level course offered within the first grouping) and the second 1 indicates that it's a survey course (which is broad based, rather than specialised courses that one would take later on).

So basic 101 means the easiest and first course
