: : : According to a new report, the words of David Brent, star of The Office, "Accept some days that you are the pigeon, and some days you are the statue" is now one Britain's best known sayings.

: : That 'new report' must have been one of those notoriously well informed editorials in the Sun Newspaper as I've never hear the phrase used by anybody - perhaps I should mix more with Sun readers.

: It was actually reported in today's Sunday Times!!

Haven't read the Times today but was it an independent report or simply some dubious survey concocted to fill column inches?
