  • Hiya sionnach
    No problemo. I agreed with your first response. I do recall (somehow) that I had a wee dram when I posted my initial misguided missive.
    I love this site - and all the witty comments from the usual suspects.

  • In America, I think solicitors are people trying to sell you stuff.

    Isn't Wordie mildly intoxicating? ;-)

  • Hi strev! You should just ignore me. I was mildly intoxicated when I wrote my previous entry. (It seemed hilarious to me at the time, less so when I read it now). You should know that I enjoy all your contributions to the site very much.

  • This kind of gross generalization could make a full-blooded Irish person oirot.

    Purrsonally, I never pronounce the 't' in Poirot, cuz I know the annoying froggy little ponce is Belgian, see? And I've certainly never heard an Irish person pronounce "pirate" as "pwa-rho" in my life.

    A "lawyer" is, of course, a purely artificial construct seen only on American TV shows. Anyone in Ireland in need of legal advice would consult either a solicitor or a barrister.

    (I'm Irish, for what it's worth)

  • How the Irish say "Pirate"

    (I'm half Irish for what it's worth)

    Here's another... Liar = Lawyer
