Subject: RE: BS: Scots Rhyming Slang???
Ma mindin' o' the vaccies frae Glesca et the stert o' the war wis bein' fair bumfoozled et their want o' the guid Lallans twang. Nane o' them kenn't whit a sheugh wis, an' hud nae clue that straucht meant "no bent".A brough roon' the muin wis ayont their ken. In a gemme o' kick the can tellin them tae coorie doon ablow a cairt or ahin a stane dyke wis a waste o' guid braith. Skittrie-felties, whaups, yowes an' meers wur beasties they'd never heard tell o'. Funny, mind, they seemed tae ken whit coorie-hunkers meant.
