It seems one of the few that didn't get it also gets confused at polling stations when asked whether they want to leave or remain.
I know a song about that.
Should I stay or should I go by the clash

Well we've all drank in the pub called the Camden Lock and we used to hang
around camden lock mostly on sundays so they do know what a lock is or can
be. I aslo said I saw this while on a 25 bus traveling down bow road during
the central line tube strike.
You;d be suprised out how many people are amused by the word bollocks.
I explained this to one of my italian students, he's a muscian and was play
ing something on his instrument, and someone clapped and he said falicimo o
r magnafico in italian and I said it's the dogs bollocks, he though I was b
eing insulting by calling it bollocks so I had to explain what the term the

Isn't that british humour, sometimes british humour needs explaining other times it doesn't. It's only being educated about such things that make it funny and this includes langauge and grammer.

are you suggesting that foreigners have a childish sense of humour, or the
50 year-old from up north thought it amusing too, as did the German girl wh

I know, you don't.
As I said I found it amusing, party for the fact that they must have known
what they were doing and I'd rather see a name like that than Best car wash
or cheapest car wash, which is the types of names for such places I see mo
re locally to me, and it was an actually panner not just a few sheets of pa
