Can I put a filter on the thread list that hides all the "Can a xxx be a yyy"? Seriously, the joke stopped being funny even before the first thread was posted.

You might need look-up table or database for x and y....and a loop to filter through everything :-)

Yea these threads are about the same level of humor as an adult who tells "knock knock" jokes. Lets keep moving and stop with this silliness. I stopped being funny shortly after it started.

Shemp! I thought you took your ball and went home. Are you back to stay?

I'm originally from an orphanage in Liverpool, & I'm a mediocre drummer on a good day, so the answer is no, especially if you're an old decrepit lazy bastard like me who doesn't practice.

Not to worry I have the key at the ready. It's turned into a one-ups-manship.

Don't give him ideas. Once he gets a little Jack in him he'll create that thread in triplicate. PFOG gets a little weird when he gets yank-pissed.

I'm also from Liverpool - the posh part, obviously (it's relative) - but have yet to achieve fame, fortune or indeed mediocrity.

I was recently praised at work by a lady from Yorkshire on my Northern affectations.

The trick is to never pronounce the 'th' and instead to nod. It works every time.

I know you know this, Andy but I just felt the need to clarify for our colonial cousins.

Can you elaborate Dunc?

So you don't pronounce the "th" sound at the begining of a word? While we're on the subject, where the heck is Brian John of ACDC from? He sounds downright Irish.

A friend recently pointed out a unique reigional quirk we have here in the SOuthwest. We swallow the T sound in the middle of words. "Moun-tain" becomes "moun-n" or "Monitor" becomes "Monidurr".

Brian's a Geordie (near Newcastle). Totally different accent.

When I say, you don't pronounce the 'th', it's when it's used as a 'the' in a sentence.

Reverting to stereotype:

'Eh, Bob, there's trouble down't mill'!

You don't say the 't' in that sentence. You just not and put your tongue in the position as if you were going to say a 't', but you don't say it.

Maybe I'll make a video when I have five minutes. I'm a home counties boy but I was an adopted Lancastrian for a while.

Liverpool accents are different again, with more intonation - especially at the ends of sentences.

...Fascinating. Thanks for the clarification.

I'd apologize to everyone for Saturn-ing this thread but I think it's an improvement.
