Ever wondered how popular phrases were conceived?

I can only assume that this is the very essence of a cock and balls story

Surely they must have noticed when 'she' was standing up whilst producing the urine test?

As to the etymology of the phrase 'cock and bull story', if you are interested, one possible explanation is connected to two inns - The Cock and The Bull - on the road from London to Birmingham, in the town of Stony Stratford (now on the edge of Milton Keynes). A Cock and Bull Story being one that was told around these two dubious watering holes, passed around by travellers and often not worthy of credence.

I believe that both pubs are still serving, so I'd like to believe it's true.
Sorry Tamarin were you saying something.
Well I enjoyed it.
