Roger the zimmer regional humor (67* d) RE: regional humor 02 Sep 99


There's a Brummie version of Bert's which my grandfather used to quote, started "A for th'oss" (Hay for the horse).
Wiser not to open this can of worms or you'll have Steve Parkes and I swopping "Anuk & Eyli" stories which can seriously damage your mental health! E.g. Anuk:
"Ow do ships float if them med of iron?"
Eyli:
"All iron floats, yo' iron bedsted'll float"
Anuk throws iron bedstead in the cut, it sinks!
"Eyli, yo' tol' me it'd float"
Eyli:
"Ar, in salt watter!"
[story reduced from ten minutes to bare bones to protect the innocent!] Tara a bit
