"The men had a whip-round and got you this. Well, what I mean is I had the men roundly whipped until they got you this."

what you get when you have an impromptu collection of bucks, but when you put in two quid instead, I think that's called a default swap.

Now I'm sure where the Australians got the habit of just making up funny sounding words to descibe things.

Top hole. Bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how's your father. Hairy blighter, dicky-birdied, feathered back on his Sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harper's and caught his can in the Bertie.

Airplanes don't have flight engineers anymore. Subby didn't read the article properly. The article said "Engineer Mr Lay, 40, said: "The whip-round certainly happened, I put two quid in. I saw other people throwing in fivers.""
For some reason the mans occupation and age are important to the story.

I'm just not understanding banter at all well today.

Sure, if you count British as English. This story is way too British for me to care.

*blink, blink*

Is this your first time reading the news? They all do that, for every story. Author Terry Pratchett, 64, pokes fun at in The Truth. I can't believe you've never noticed it before (said Fark-commentor LiquidSky, 34). This particular journalist (age unknown) was lazy, for full points you really need to mention the home town as well.

In American, it's "pass the hat" - to take up a collection for something, like more beer or to pay the pizza guy.
