Several umpteen

BBC: Animal charity starts mole count

A conservation charity is calling for thousands of volunteers to take part in a national survey of moles… The survey will involve a molehill count because the underground-dwelling animals are rarely seen.

Honestly, I just couldn't be bothered. Do you reckon they'd accept several umpteen as a reasonable approximation?

  1. What a destructive little bugger! He seemed like such a nice chap when he was having tea with ratty.

  2. Do you remember the Jasper Carrott monologue about moles?
