Garlic is for French faggots, who are probably also Catholic and thus banned from our holy shores.

True English gentlemen insist that their cooks use the native alternative, ramsons, Allium Ursinum.

Useless factoid for American, gay, atheistic, swarthy ponces.

Ramsbottom, a small market town not so far from me, which might, possibly have faggottish connotations for those of a puerile nature, derives its name from the plant, frequently found growing wild in the area.

So fuck you. In a nice kind of way but not at all homosexual. X
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Yes I know about Lord Ramsbottom. At Eton he was "Bunny".

Meanwhile, look what I found, 8)

True English gentlemen would not be seen dead wearing a NY Yankees cap, they are strictly for Chavs. Even De_Bunk doesn't wear them.

No more than Lea & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce is Eyetie.

An essential ingredient in every English gentleman's dish.

I buy in bulk to ensure a secure supply.
I have a bottle of that. Use it often.

Mister Lister, even I do not go out and about brown-bagging Lea & Perrins.

You should be ashamed of yourself, sir.

Try a twelve step program and accept Doctor X as your High Power.

That's the only way they sell it in the states, and you can only buy it in dark alleys at 2am from the same sketchy character that sells fish and chips.
Such potential!

Wait. Ramsbottom is a store in the UK? In the states, it's a verb that describes what priests and camp counselors do to [stop that! -ed].

Do try and pay attention, young man. I appreciate that you suffer from a disability shared by your peers, as in not being British, but you might have noticed that Ramsbottom is a small market town, much like the one I inhabit, Stockport. Abdul is in the habit of referring to it as "Stopfun", an oblique reference to its original name of Stopford. Which, as any fule know means shallow river place in Olde English.

Stopfunia == Latin name for Stopford.

Rumpenda Nates == Latin name for Ramsbottom

Fuck you, Abdul and the gay, Kikey mule you rode in on.

Stopfunia rhymes with harmonica, and I'm now going to have to buy two more to add to my collection.

Stop triggering me!

I'm going to report you to Pyrrho, Abdul. I've already bought one harmonica this week and you're an enabler.

I'm considering taking legal action via my lawyers, Sue Grabbit and Run.

'Tis a thing of beauty, though, about the best Richter tuned diatonic harmonica money can buy.

Mrs. Camel pissed me off by picking it up and instantly learning how to play the blues scale.

*SIGH*

Yeah it's Sargon, but it's less than 2 minutes so it's OK.

Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘change is coming’ warning to the press is chilling
The Spectator (UK)
...

It’s tempting to dismiss this video as just the sort of thing Corbyn does – grandly attacking the press on social media in order to rally his supporters, who already despise the mainstream media – but it’s a little more serious than that.

...
Emphasis added.

Remind you of anyone else? :BigGrin3:

Back to serious stuff:

BBC wrote:Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, urges parents to read to children

Writing in the Sunday Express, Camilla spoke of the joy her father brought to her by reading to her every night.

She said: "Those evenings didn't just pass on a lifelong love of reading; they made me, too, want to share that passion with my children and now with my grandchildren."

The duchess was writing ahead of World Book Day on Thursday.

She said a day dedicated to books may seem "a bit old-fashioned" in a world "that sometimes feels dominated by too many screens and too much information".

But Camilla said it was a "timely reminder" of how important books and reading are, especially for children.
