Any mention of this magical number should result in the entire assembly/class moaning with their tongue pushed behind their lower lip and slapping their thigh with their cupped palm. The school never sang hymn number 88, 188 etc. No teacher would dare suggest that the class turned to page 88. As time passed the number of associated trigger words swelled - common words like "space" and "mock" were all that were required to trigger this collective hysteria.
