    Player of the Pink Oboe

    Player of the Pink Oboe, or simply, Pink Oboe Player, is an old fashioned way of calling someone a cocksucker.

    Famously used by the late comedian Peter Cook in a sketch during “The Secret Policeman’s Ball” in 1979, a benefit show to raise money for Amnesty International.

    Example usage:

    “… we have been forced to listen to the pitiful whining of Mr Norma St.John Scott – a scrounger, parasite, pervert, a worm, a self-confessed player of the pink oboe; …” – Peter Cook, “The Secret Policeman’s Ball” 1979
