Best jokes

[Probably should gloss the phrase ‘chippy tea’ for anyone not privileged to have been born in the North of England:

For Southerners: Chippy Tea = Fish Supper
For overseas members: Chippy Tea = going to a fish and chip shop for your evening meal]

Not a joke but a true story of which you have reminded me.
I went to college in Dundee.

First night after arriving and unpacking etc, I decided to treat myself to a trip to to the fish and chip shop. Arbroath and all that.

“May I have fish and chips please?”

<< titter >> “You’ll be wanting a fush supper”

“What’s a fush supper?”

“Well, it’s fush. And chups”

“Thanks, I’ll have that.”

It transpires that in Scotland, or Dundee at least, the word ‘supper’ simply means ‘with chips’ (chups).

Used to taste better served in newspapers which was soaked in vinegar, nor cardboard or polystyrene trays

Interesting. Thank you.

“His wife Palma would ask customers “Uno di questa, uno di quella?” This phrase (meaning “one of this, one of that”) entered the vernacular in Dublin as “one and one”, which is still a way of referring to fish and chips in the city .”. Wikipedia

Today, the Met Office have reported a sudden cold snap in Liverpool, specifically in the Everton area.

Minus 10, I believe.
