New Review

Always nice to get a positive review for one of my books and even better when it comes from another 'ex-pat' Burtonian!  Carol post...

Bye Definition

Spent some time reading the late, lamented Douglas Adam's and John Lloyd's (QI) 'Meaning of Liff' the other day.  This isn't in the same league, but I couldn't resist it:

Nork:  Mythical creature with immense powers of observation - "she watched him like a nork"

Cravat:  Noise made by frogs in public school grounds

Lariat:  Hat worn by Lawrence

Pepysshow:  Odd entertainment in which scantily-clad young women show men their diaries for money

per se:  Very affected pronunciation of the name 'Percy'

Carpet:  Small animal found in vehicle, usually on the parcel shelf. 


Scarf:  The answer to the question "What do you call a baby cow?"
