Have you seen this? Some of the entries made me laugh but I was a little upset at being called sinister (local dialect somewhere for being left handed!)

Interesting though - also reminded me of words we used as kids that I haven't used for ages. I shall no longer walk to work in my trainers - I'm going to wear my bumpers from now on!

Bumpers is too childish a word for a man of your age, Birdie. Try "daps". Much more macho ;0)

You have to say "daps" in a Welsh voice, I should have said.

That's what our old games teacher used to do (before hitting us with one).

Mind you, he also used to make us watch "A Man Called Horse" when the weather was too bad to play rugby. He thought the scene with the chickens' feet in the nipples would be character building for us.

The only thing I can say in a Welsh accent is "Who's coat is that jacket" I'm afraid.

"The only gay in the village"?

Yeah but no but yeah but... I hate Little Britain. A poor mans League of Gentlemen (which I didn't much care for either).

That was probably more controversial than admitting to liking The Woolpack wallpaper ;-)

League of Gents was great, but Little Britain is unwatchable (due to being on constant loop on BBC3/BBC4)
