a floor, so cunningly laid that no matter where you stood it was always under your feet.

China Story. A Goon show Script. Recorded on January 16, 1955 First broadcast on January 18, 1955. Script by Spike Milligan and Eric Sykes.

... The floor was so cunningly laid ...

Eventually, several layers of Yacht Varnish will obviate the need to employ urchins to swab it every Saturday morning, but for now the lovely Mrs K agreed to test the deck, after Sunday lunch and a tolerably good bottle of Rosé from Rheinessen.
