yarb commented on the word arty-farty
It was arty-farty when I were a lad. In fact artsy-fartsy doesn't sound right to me.I have in fact spent a short time reading Reading in Reading - at Reading railway station in 1997, to be precise.

I think he must mean artsy-fartsy. yarb: with just a little extra effort you could be reading Reading in Reading.
