Feckin' Weather


#781

Consider it a gift from Scotchland for the many excellent new phrases I have learned from my fellow Southern meatment :+1:


#782

Not so iirc, I posted a pick of a guy in a kilt flipping the bird and wrote underneath ‘smell ya ma!’ Stu then corrected me with ‘Yer Maw’. Since then it seems to have become part of the meatman’s vernacular.

I used to work with a Weegie, who used it all the time, sometimes upgrading it to ‘smell yer crazy maw’ for added effect. :+1:

I have an excellent book of Scottish slang somewhere, ‘The Patter’, do you know that Allan?


#783

Taken on March 4th in Caerleon. Top work there.


#784

Fair do’s Ritchie - I missed your original post :+1:

My favourite variation of it tho’ is - shaved yir maws back :joy:

The Patter is funny Ritchie - did you know there was an additional one ?

Weegie - is what our lovely Edinburgh neighbours call us when they want to insult us - we just call them cunts of course. :grin:

Nice bit of Chewin the Fat on topic


#786

That reminds me Paul I really will need to watch Still Game from the start again - could do with a good laugh.


#787

Still Game is pretty much guaranteed to cheer you up :+1:


#788

One of the all-time greats


#789

I didn’t know there was another volume, I shall have a look for that. :+1:
Chewin’ The Fat was great, I also liked Only An Excuse, especially the Frank Macavennie bits. :joy:

It has feckin’ snowed here this morning. Not proper snow, just a deep layer of semi-melted slush that is making a hideous mess. There have been a couple of shunts at the lights up the road, and a shouting match between the rear-ender and rear-endee across the road from me.

Twats.


#791

Salted snow or unsalted ?

VB


#792

Why is it when there’s snow people start driving like idiots ? I live in a narrow one way lane, when it snows idiots start driving the wrong way up the lane.


#793

Dunno. it is fairly dirty and grey now. Thankfully, for all parties concerned, there appears to be an absence of yellow snow.


#794

This is nice.


#795

To be fair that one way system in Moulton is a pain - I have twice gone the wrong way home after visiting you and ended up in the town centre.:disappointed_relieved:


#796

They’ve also installed it the wrong way round. It’s supposed to stop you arriving, not leaving, FFS.


#797

Snowed in again today…

Good thing we bought 5 loaves of bread and a cart full of milk yesterday :+1:


#798

Is that Comrade Putin’s nasty Siberian white powder again? FFS!


#799

May needs to stand up to the dangerous bastard and make him stop depositing this stuff here. After all, he has all of Siberia to put it !!!


#800

Stop feckin’ whinging. This will be the evidence that nice, but rather confused, Mr Corbyn asked for.
