While listening to Simon Mayo the other day, there was a nice moment when he became a bit concerned that the person who had called in was going to be rude about the bankers. The person on the phone says, "No, I'll just call them a 'wunch'." Mayo did not know what he meant and cautiously asked him to repeat it. "Wunch," the caller replied. "A wunch of bankers". A google search confirms that the word has been around for a while, and even finds its way into the Urban Dictionary.

Mark, surely you didn't miss the obvious: invert the opening consonants in the phrase 'wunch of bankers' Roger

Roger -- you are right -- I didn't miss the obvious. Didn't think it needed "spelling" out, as it were :)
