What don't they understand?

What I'd like to know is what don't they understand? We all understand NormanB's humour! And, last time I checked most of us speak English :D albeit not grammatically perfect!

Norm...you are welcome on THIS side of the pond anytime!

Bryan, did you see the link on About.com? http://motorcycles.about.com/od/messageboards/

The link is the 3rd one down under the ad for the iPod.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN :?: Norman's not local :roll: :lol:
Curious British phrasing 101:

Norm's down the pub means he's at his local (not that he is or is not local).

Don't ask me how I know.

Regards,

Dan

Tag line...

Norman,

I just noticed you are the "Tavern Jester". Were you recently knighted? I can't believe I missed that one!

Congrats!

What I learned in England

I got a 4 year lesson in British english and colloquiallisms when I worked there in the late 90s.

For example when I talked about having a fanny pack I learned that in England they're called bum bags. I'll leave it to Norman to explain what a fanny is.

Suspenders don't hold up one's trousers. Over to you Norm.

When someone asks how you are, don't answer ... I'm just ducky. Took me almost a year before someone explained that one to me.

I could go on but sufice it to say that we're 2 countries separated by a common language. Loved every minute of it.

Regards,

Dan

You're the first one to notice and mention it. :) Norman's in a class all by himself therefore he has a new rank. :wink:

They hold the socks up don't they?

Tell you what, I could go to England and really have people asking "what did she just say"
