Reminds me of the "with your face like..." comments that Vic Reeves used to make to Jack Dee on Shooting Stars;A friend from Glasgow described someone as having "a face like a deep-fried fart."
When I was a kid and out shopping with my mum, if I asked her to buy biscuits or some breakfast cereal that was more interesting than Corn Flakes her response would be "No, because you'll only eat it."Me mam used to have a phrase "If you fall and break your leg, don't come running to me." I always loved that one.
I may have reverted t'Northern accent there.
A friend was driving her daughter to the nursery one morning when a car overtook. She heard a little voice in the back of the car say "Fucking idiot!". Another car passed and she heard it again.My normally euphemistic parents, faced with our antics would give vent to "For crying out loud!" - which, I doubt my mother intended as a substitute for the f-word and "By the cringe!" - which sounds quite impressive and nearly-rude, though my father could swear when he wanted to.
His most impressive outburst was remembered for many years. After a terrible day, he sat down to enjoy his dinner, then . . .
"Oh bloody, effing hell! the pissing, bastard dog has done a bloody great shit under the effing table!"
She had, too! Massive!
During such joyous moments, children have phonographic memories!
That reminds me.. my mum's polite substitutes for rude words were Ship and "Shine a light""For crying out loud!" - which, I doubt my mother intended as a substitute for the f-word
No - I just remembered it had been discussed here on the forum years ago. I was wrong about its having been discussed at length or in detail.Blimey, do you keep all this stuff in your head ? Awesome.
