@liuzhou Thanks for that. I accidentally clicked on the Toblerone one. Now I get the reference in the movie "What we did on our Holiday" as he hands his grand-daughter a Toblerone bar and refers to it as a model of the Swiss Alps.

There's an alternate explanation...

Interesting. I meant why Billy Connolly specifically uses it in the movie. I also love the expression he uses which is probably common  "well dip me in vinegar and call me a fish supper".

So I just got a voice message from my son out in Alberta.

 

He went to the bank on Friday. At his bank each teller's post has been turned into a mini-cubicle with plexi dividers, of course, and there will usually be one or another promotional item on the customer's side...perhaps a tray of chocolate bars, or a stuffed animal...which are for sale to support one or another local charity. On Friday, instead of these typical items, he found a large bottle of (wait for it...) Heinz ketchup.

 

The teller was an older Indo-Canadian lady, someone he knows well, and she was clearly just waiting for him to ask. So he did.

"What's up with that?"
"Well, you know...that is because it is time to ketchup on your RRSP* contributions!"

 

He's still laughing about it. :)
