[Churchill's endearment for his wife, Clementine, was "pussy-cat". And what did Clementine call him, of all things, but "pig." And sometimes each would call out to the other, respectively, "Meow, meow" or "oink,oink."
Once at 10 Downing Street during the war, both were on the floor on their hands and knees sounding out "Oink, oink" and "Meow, meow" when the Archbishop of Canterbury walked in. He must have thought his prime minister had gone absolutely bonkers!]
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
--Hugh Latimer, October 16, 1555
