    Default Most obscure claim to fame.

    We've all got our little claims to fame (like I once flew a 767 flight simulator with David "kid" Jensen, held a door for Roy Wood at South Mimms, saw Jonathan Ross at Leicester Forest East Services), but I now have an even more obscure one.
    I discovered the other day that my Mother In Law has a friend whose daughter owns the Tibetan Terrier that appears (briefly) in the Land Rover Discovery 3 TV advert.

    Beat that!

    There's a huge thread on this from ages ago.

    Haven't read it for a while but there's some real gems in there which these latest ones could be added to.
