Yeah yeah ,Cat  ....or with a pencil ... !

This was always going to get rude... so Stoppit ....(nicely)

or we'll all be on the Naughty Step (again )

Think about your Declinations , boy !..... Or Better still , conjugate the verb To BLATHER....

It'll take your mind off toilet related  matters (with any luck)

ha ha! 'blaether' means to 'natter' to have a gossipy wee chat! But is your "blather" Braddley, where we get the phrase "blabber mouth" from?

"That was before the advent computers" - Catgate

I wonder how many people get that one Catty, realising it's not a missing `of''? Just to help them, see here.

Just returning briefly to the WC, my mum always went for a Jimmy Riddle but she was a South African so I've no idea where the words came from. Sounds more like Cockney for piddle.

I have heard that up here, as you say more cockney. Maybe a cockney took it abroad.

I've always thought that "P*SS" was onomatopoeic ....and it IS ....(NO jokes please) and that "PEE" was a politer way of saying it..

Surely that company does not make advent computers all the year round. I thought it was just a December thing.

Why have you reminded me of the old joke, 'The P is silent as in Jerry'.

Just like everything else about Christmas now!

Yesterday I described something as being `a right tuckle' meaning it was in a mess. Is that northern or national? What does it derive from?

Bradders, glad you are unaffected. I see that Wadebridge has protection against flooding from the sea - better watch your back though with Bodmin lurking behind you.

I haven't heard of a right tuckle, tizer but in scotland they get in a bit of a fankle from time to time.

Peter , thanks for your concern...Bodmin is "bandit country" ...I don't go there any more than I can help. ! ...and thankfully there's hilly stuff in between us , althought the river Camel does twist and turn up that way...

 Stanley , "the P is silent , as in Bath " is  just as naughty  !
