Turn of phrase

Overheard tonight during a pictionary-type round in the game of Cranium (UK edition):

"Stubble! Time! Oh, I've got it -- six o'clock stubble!"

Poor chap, he was really stunned to find out how close he'd come to the actual phrase. Whoever classifies British English, Irish English, Scotch English and US English as the same language should spend more time over here.
