You don't need a stamp

At a recent trip to the Aquarium with becky and Louie we saw this picture, which I presume is of Triton the Greek god of water. Anyway this picture reminded dus of dad because of two amusing catchphrases.
1. "You don't need a stamp"
I think whilst I was at university I forgot to send mum a mothers day card. Anyway on the day I enrolled Kim (who was about 8 at the time) to write a card for me, placed it in an envelope to look as if it had been sent by myself. Kim had the bright idea of putting a stamp on the card, so she though she'd ask dad for a stamp. About this time Dad had become addicted to playing the Super Nintendo, not sure which game, but he was playing when Kim asked for a stamp. Whilst asking Dad, he lost a life on a particularly high level, and shouted at Kim "YOU DON'T NEED A STAMP". The phrase has stuck ever since.
2. "You won't be saying that when you want a tenner"
Typically used by Dad when mickey taking.
