Hi there,
I'm a non-Sassenach guy so maybe that's why really have some problems with understanding the nickname mentioned. It's from a book about ex-SAS soldier Andy McNab:

[He bought Porsche 911 all-wheel-drive Targa.] ‘I loved the car for precisely two weeks. But then the shine of its dark blue exterior started to wear off for me. There was no way I was going to scoff bacon sandwiches and ruin the leather upholstery. I got stopped three times by the police in the first week. And then, to cap it all, I was given the name Herbal Henry by the village we’d just moved to because, well...'

Ends with these three points. And I really don't get it. What's the point?

* McNab - blog' post mentioning that 'Herbal Henry' name is a funny one

Thanks for any help or tip!
