The Third Man: Excuse their manners if they made a scene.


The robbers are troublemakers, never been some fakers. Doing things their own way and never giving up.

Thieves reported to not give a hoot about what you think.

Canned beans last what, 5 years?  2 pallets should last a family that long, as long as it isn't their primary food source.

Why do the English still call them 'tins' when there is little or no tin in them?

Same with torch = flashlight?

"Police are appealing for information, especially about anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances," a force spokesman said.

Well, someone tried to sell me 59,027,201 cans of Heinz baked beans this morning, but they weren't Heinz baked beans with sausages. You don't think it was the same people, do you?

The English love tradition. Mind you, a lot of old words linger long past their best before date even in go-ahead North America. Contrary to a misconception common among the English and the Upper Classes in particular, they're not nearly as conservative as regional dialects, which is why we are still using a lot of English that disappeared in the days of Dr. Johnson if not earlier. The English love slang so along with old words that make no sense, they have tons of new words that never did and never will.

A classic example is the Cockney rhyming slang word, berk, which is short for "Berkshire Hunt". Why is a fox hunt a term meaning a douchebag? Because the English a bunch of silly bunts.

Why do we call them glasses if they are made of plastic (eye glasses, drinking glasses)?

Why do we call them pencil leads when they are made of graphite?

Why am I thinking of George Carlin and Steven Wright? Because they both like this sort of annoying humour. Annoying because half the time I can give you a good valid reason why we say the stupid things we do, and that sort of spoils the joke, if only for me.

England. Where people eat beans for breakfast.

And boarding school kids eat Cornflakes for dinner. Really. One of my teachers had an English wife and that's what they had at her boarding school. Of course, it wasn't one of the really posh schools, but all the same, cheap is cheap.

Anybody know the St. Trinian cartoons of Ronald Searle? He shows the girls rolling the lawn as part of "sports day". Slavery began on the playing fields of Eton.

I'd argue we've got that one right - batteries have been capable of providing a steady current for a while now.

??
Flash != flicker.
Flicker is uncontrolled.  Flash is controlled.

And the verb sense of torch is to burn, to set aflame, to incinerate.  I can't use a flashlight to do that.
