Other examples of this kind of thing. Facebook posts about having a chester draws for sale. Best of all, woman has a kid who is lack toast intolerant.

I do laugh, but it is utterly tragic. Many British students graduate university unable to construct a simple declarative sentence in their mother tongue, while less than an hour's flight away in Holland retards can lick windows in all the major European languages.

Used to mock my children, sarf eas Engerlan born and schooled up to age 8, in order to try and get them to listen to what they were saying.

schooled up to age 8,

In Norfolk you'd be known as 'thur professor' and you'd be expected to knock cousin (in Norfolk he would be...) Fred, who it is rumored once read an entire 'Janet & John' book, off the captaincy of the village quiz pub team.

Yeah but in the Netherlands (NB. 'Holland' isn't a country, so my Dutch friends tell me..or rather SHOUT at me when I say it) it is a law that everyone speaks at least 3 languages. Don't think I've ever met a Dutchman who couldn't speak at least 4 fluently and a get himself laid in a couple more.

When you see a card in an Amsterdamer phone box offering 'Greek' or 'French lessons', you can bet 'Lisa' really does and her 'all night special' is 8 hours of biblical Koine.....not coitus.

Hypocrisy again, JuliaM. I recall you rebuking my spelling of 'colour' because your Yankee spellchecker failed to recognise you.

"Facebook posts about having a chester draws for sale."

Oooh, yes. That grates!

"I do laugh, but it is utterly tragic."

It is, actually. What hope have these people of getting a job? The 'Mail' can't hire them all!

"Used to mock my children, sarf eas Engerlan born and schooled up to age 8, in order to try and get them to listen to what they were saying."

Did it work?

"Hypocrisy again, JuliaM. I recall you rebuking my spelling of 'colour'..."

Eh?
