Boring - S1-E3

Question: What is it exactly that Rik reads from the paper? The thing that Neil repeats that brings the little devil to them? I'm assuming it's a poorly pronounced version of something that was in the papers at that time, but I can't think of anything that fits it.

Chosen answer: It wasn't referring to anything real, just that the government's bureaucratic naming, The Guardian's mangled spelling or Rick's bad pronounciation resulted in the unlikely word "Footumch" being spoken.

Chosen answer: This is the dialog: RICK: "Hey, get this! 'Under the new ruling, all a student needs for an increased grant is a numklpkgulftoomsch from the local authority!" NEIL: "What was that?" RICK: "A numklpkgulftoomsch. Don't you ever read The Guardian, Neil?" NEIL: "What's a ftoomsch?" Ftoomsch was the little devil's name and the joke was that he'd said no one would ever say his name in regular conversation so he'd have no chance of stealing a soul.

Question: What is the name of the band playing in the pub? They sing 'Welcome to the House of Fun' and seem very familiar to me, but I can't figure out how.

Mistakes

When Vyvyan tells Neil he has 3 seconds to make supper, a boom mic shadow can be seen on the far right side of the screen on the cupboard.

Trivia

It's obvious that they just walked into the train station and started filming, because all throughout the sequence people are staring at them.
