RIGHT !!

You Lot !!

I was keeping myself quiet during the "tart" comments .

But , when we start talking about "crumpet" ,

And then to make mention of both "bugger" , and "root" as well !!!

Shocking !! Simply Shocking !!

And I HAD thought that this was a "family" Web-site-posting-what-do-you-actually-call-this-thing-anyway !!

I will close this message by stating , in my very MOST huffy tones ,

Well !! I Never !!

Sincerely ,
Cheap And Cheerful ,
