Default Heath Robinson

Amazing how many blank looks you can garner from the phrase "it's all a bit heath robinson." Better than the glares when they realise what you mean I suppose.

Anyway I've always loved his stuff. Have a look

my old man refers to Heath Robinson. No one ever knows what he's talking about.

I do too. Sometimes people openly laugh at me when I say it.

Super-contraptions tend to feature in his work, as well. Despite being familiar with his work and, obviously, the phrase you are celebrating, I don't think I've ever read anything about the man himself.

I work in IT for a large financial compmay and therefore hear reference to Heath Robinson on a despressingly frequent basis. Not depressing becasue it's not funny, depressing becasue it is true.
