No but I think we should call the Game Warden this instant! He sounds like a poacher to me!

He would appear to be expressing a degree of disapproval entirely inappropriate in one of the Scottish persuasion.

Never fear chaps...I had experience o this sort of foreign blathering out in India during the Mutiny. These Johnny Foreigners only understand one thing...er, now what was it? I remember telling a chap to build me an elaborate railway system and a summer residence and he got all upset and refused to get my curry ready...oh yes I remember, we shot him.

Anyone for Tiffin?

I have some experience with these drunken transvestites. My parentage is half from there (fortunately, I got the drunk bit and not the cross-dressing) :haha:

Hoots, mon! Whit urr ye's aa spielin aboot? Dae ye no' ken forbye Ah'll no be pu'in the cuddy o'er the brae furr such sassenach company as ye's aa'? Wheesht! I'll be takkin the high road, an' ma Samoan Attorney wull be takin the low road, and we'll hae a wee drappie wi' the houghmagandy afore the nicht's o'er. Ochone!

I say my good fellow! What are you talking about? Don't you understand I'll not be compromising my accent for you southern fairies? I'm off to the pub, and my land shark is coming with me, and we're both going to get drunk. Toodle-oo!

I say, you're comparing me to the hired help? It's not good, just like everything Scotland's done.
Now, I would like to set the record straight, I am not a commoner and while being slightly odd, (something something something) a haggis. Also, (something something something, probably a derogatory remark about the English being soft nancy boys with no capability for manual labour). Plus, I've acquired Yorkshireman syndrome.
Is that understandable?

Is one going to fight by Marquess of Queensberry rules? The forehead is not a gentlemanly weapon you know.

I wasn't going to fight you myself: I was going to set my Samoan Attorney on you. Anyway, the Marquess of Queensberry was a dreadful homophobe. Buggered too often at boarding school, no doubt. If you really want a duel, I suggest handbags at dawn. Milo will act as my second, you can have Nef Yoo. With backup like that, nothing can go wrong.

Why, that sounds spiffing. Can I suggest that your Samoan Attorney take to the field first and you act as his second? I get on quite well with dogs and with a kilo of sausages I think I could convince your landshark to behave rather nicely. You could then have a duel with the Cabin Buoy from the Great Beyond and honour would be satisfied :haha:
