Can anyone tell me please which episode showed Cleggy visiting his late wife's grave with flowers? As he seldom shows any real affection for her, or marriage, this episode was a rarity showing him in a different light.
Yes twas Of Funerals and Fish and Clegg rides his bike along
side a funeral march, leaves flowers at his wife's grave,
and pops a flower in his vest.
"I don't know, lass; it's a rum old world. Nonetheless, I, uh,
I think I'll go and get a bit of sausage for me tea."
Now got 3 countries divided by a common language!Over here, what is called a "vest" in the UK is referred to as a "singlet".
A vest here generally means a sort of jacket, (eg Life Vest...also known as a life jacket , Bullet proof Vest etc etc.) usually without sleeves. It isn't used much; neither are bullet proof vests!!:thumbsup:
Another couple of terms I just thought of....Ear Protectors are known here as earmuffs, Trousers are known as pants (colloquially also known as "Daks") and what are called "pants" in Uk are known as UNDERpants, ("UNDERdaks") here, also known as Undies and in a version of rhyming slang "Reg Grundies" after a famous television producer here.
Sweaters are generally "jumpers" but that is slowly changing.
Sweatsuits are tracksuits, Sweat pants are track pants...also known as "TrakkyDaks".
If there is a conceivable (or even Inconceivable) way of shortening terms and words the ozzies are masters at it! (see what I mean??)
Isn't barm cake [sometimes shortened to barm] also a derogatory term for someone you could describe as rather stupid or idiotic [perhaps associated with the word Barmy]
