Ken, you'll have to excuse us yanks.... a geezer here means an old wrinkly grumpy b.a.s.tard.
Message: Posted by: Kondini (Jan 18, 2009 11:33AM)
Correct !!!

Well,I am older than many, well over the border of land of grumpy and I was an illegitimate child, but wrinkly? Well, the suit maybe.

Ken, doesn't Geezer mean something different in the UK? I was under the impression it meant something along the lines of slang for boss.
Message: Posted by: Kondini (Jan 19, 2009 08:23AM)
Geezer is anyone (Such as Todd!!) Guvner or Guv is the Boss.
Cant you lot understand proper English like wot I do !!
Message: Posted by: thegreatnippulini (Jan 19, 2009 08:42AM)
Naw, I'm basing this on the myriad of English motion pictures we get to see over here. The chip-chop hip-ho way of speaking ruins your "proper" English. But no worries, mate... at least us northern yanks didn't completely destroy your language like they do down south.

English pictures,,,they gotta be real old cos we don't make em any more!!
See Far From the Madding Crowd, Tom Jones and Return of the Aztecs (Look close at the walkons and you will see a very handsom young me) Used to share a dressing room with Bubbles Elliot and Julie Cristy,,,,oh happy days.

Look what they have now.

Look what I have now,,,,F*** A**

Cockney and the southern dialect have the closest pronunciation to the English of Shakespeare. The rest of us have all butchered the language, as it develops.

I've heard people from Philadelphia, for example, say "woodder", which most of the rest of us pronounce as "water".

I warsh my clothes in wader. If I had a pinny for everytime some yank made fun of the way I taulked I'd be a rich man. U.S. Southerns Rock! UK Southerns are crazy.

We'll just make fun of the way you write, and leave the talking out.

People are all crazy. If somebody says they're sane, you probably can't trust anything else they say.

I despise the "wooder" pronunciation. Living next to Philadelphia I try my hardest to not slip into the native dialect.

Lets not forget, "Cum-Auwn Youse Guys, Throw-wa the Bauwl!"

Guess tomorrow you will all be saying " Hello dare man" !!!

I like ma wives I Eeels. Er legs look right niiiiice in em.

We don't say wooder where I'm from in the south but we us a D instead of a T. Wader. When I hear someone that really spits out that T I find that annoying. Guess it's what your used to.

Back to the topic at hand. Thank you Todd. Your blog is very entertaining. I think I shall go look at it now.
Message: Posted by: Kondini (Jan 20, 2009 03:24AM)
Yes quite right,,,back on topic.
Todds blog is very interesting.

Now tell me >>> With this special day today will you all be coining it in with the celebration shows etc.

I ask out of ignorance because on our Queens Coronation,,,street parties for a whole week made fortunes for lots of our entertainers.Also again on Charles & Di`s wedding I was doing 15 shows in the street on that one day.

Perhaps a mime could get into the festivities. None of the rest of us, would be permitted to carry in any bags, boxes, fluids, torches, etc. Offsite, I don't know. Stephon?

Today is less a celebration than it is the start of something that will hopefully be a productive and positive new era. A ton of high end balls will be held in Washington DC, but not much doing elsewhere.
Message: Posted by: Harley Newman (Jan 20, 2009 09:12AM)
Yes. These are folks who'd give us standing ovations, but they'd never hire us. We isn't highbrow enuff.

Someone should ask James Taylor and/or Tyler Fyre as they both live in the area. 2 million people packed into such a small area of the city is a powder keg... all they need is one of us the light the fuse by swallowing a sword or blowing a fireball.

Isn't DC the murder capitol?
I'd imagine all of their parties to end up like something out of a teen slasher flick with that reputation.
And with that Pentagramaglom building and all, there's got to be some CIA mofo who
could do it with a bic or a chew toy or something.

The security here today is tight as a nun, and it's virtually impossible to get downtown.

That being said, I know the Palace of Wonders is having all-day, rotating shows to entertain our non-going-to-the-ball visitors.

I'm sure there's no street performance going on; even without elevated security, that's generally frowned upon. Plus, it's colder that a witches t!t here.

Now if we could get that witch and that nun together, that would be a show. . .

Hey, the witches t!tty is MY bit! Leave the nun out of it.

Two Mill people all in one place,,,,let me get at em.

I wonder how many monte, shell and whiz mobs are working in DC today.
Message: Posted by: Harley Newman (Jan 20, 2009 01:37PM)
A lot of whiz, I'd bet.
Message: Posted by: Todd Robbins (Jan 20, 2009 07:55PM)
Actually, there probably very little in the way of grifters in DC this day. They realize that the marks have little left in their pockets after the politicans finish shaking them down.
