In Christopher Brookmyre’s Boiling a Frog, a politician gets into a spot of bother when a vibrator gets lodged in his rectum. As he’s desperate to avoid going to a hospital, a discreet doctor is summoned. Unfortunately, she breaks her ankle, and they end up having to call for an ambulance anyway.
This takes a while, as the ambulance dispatcher obviously doesn’t consider ‘a broken leg and a Bryce-Job’ that important. Presumably the latter refers to the politician’s embarrassing problem, but I’ve never heard the phrase, and more puzzlingly Google doesn’t seem to know it either. I don’t know whether the peculiar hyphenation and capitalisation are significant. Does anyone know of any parallels? Brookmyre is a mine of Scottish slang, but this one seems to be otherwise unknown.
