Fox puppet which became a household name after the Basil Brush Show was launched in the late 60s. Famous for his trademark laugh, which is probably one of the most irritating sounds known to man.
The show has recently returned, but with a new puppet and voice.

The new Basil is infinitely more fat and camp.

Noun: a friend who is usually only called upon by a friend when a more primary/prominent friend is unavailable.

Taken from the term “second string” in an athletic competition situation. In football, if the star quarterback gets injured during a play, the second string is called off the bench to replace him/her. A “Second String Friend” is essentially benched until needed, if ever.

Synonyms: Plan B, Second Choice, Secondary Friend, Benched Until Needed
