Belated Christmas pressy...enjoy

Saw this and thought of us lot :wink: :smiling_imp: luv it-luv it!

May your meese be bountiful and your gooses lay golden egg.

Well, your meese may be bountiful, etc., but this had the unfortunate result of calling to mind a colleague in China who hails from over the Water, and who tends to irritate me almost beyond endurance by posturing in front of my students and friends on the basis that I don’t speak English and that he does!

'nuff said.


Ummm, don’t I know that feeling‽ But don’t get me started Mark: Druid may be listening… :smiley:

Wouldn’t be too perturbed about Druid, Judders…cos 'e torks like this…

Owed Jim e’ were a clogger, Wi’a workshop, up some steps.
Ther’l be lots o’folk a warin, those fancy clogs’e meks.
'e cuts the soles from wooden blocks, wi a fancy shaped machine,
An clever folk’ave coed it, A clogger’s guillotin

. An when e’s finished shapen’ soles, An tacked’is leather round,
‘e’s ready then fer buckle on, An pattin’toe-caps down.
A can see’im now a shapin’ Some very pointed soles,

'e sez ther for a clog-dancer, 'who puts on special shows.

An’then thers bread and butter clogs, which Jim meks by the score,
An’when ther blacked and polished up, Ther ready for the store.
But one thing’s sure, ther is no doubt, For warin on yer feet.
Yo canna beat Jim’s wooden clogs, becoz ther med just reet.[/i]
