After having thrown a few pie shells your way I am still
scratching me arse. Not a JLS* 'moment' do I see.
I am waiting to see sign from a BigPoo subscriber yet.
You looking to set the standard?
You catch that news on "eagle" and the NBN ISP?

the other guy "Budgeregar" is here:
But, but.......Y'all presupposes that y' is a contraction of you which is a
foreign word in Texas. Ya, on the other hand, is the Texas version of
"you". Ya get it?
"C'mon in a get ya a beer".
Therefore ya'll would be slightly more correct than y'all.
When you say "rolling" accent do you mean rolling as in the Spanish name
Berroterran where both sets of rrs are rolled?
And could you phonetically spell mheh so that I may be able to speak it
Nope.. that is the Orish accent too, by the way,
rolling the "rrs" :->
No, I meant the U *and* the R are rolled together
so as to mostly sound like yrrrrr but not grrr.
try like, an acknowledging "grunt", from the belly.
In "speech" it is barely audible, so "correct" is maybe
subjective, in the ear of the listener???
But just to be sure, to be sure ?? :->
"mheh".. is never uttered in contempt, tho'.
A message of contempt is usually conveyed with a
silent look, a tightening of the eyes, if you like /:-]
And from the more easily excitable..?.. delivered with a
fast right hook!
It (texan) is actually maybe the most mimed American
accent here in Aussie, that and maybe the hillbilly
"Clampert family" type 'speak'.
Possibly because of those tuppence paperback
"cowboy an' injun" readers so popular in the sixties
here, and the drawl of the Duke in his movies.
OTOH... everyone loved G'ma in the Clamperts!
One would go a long way to hear anyone here [.au]
mimicking a Boston or Yonkers accent.
I guess you might be able to say "texan" _is_ the
Voice of America?
And George Dubbya went along way to reinforce that
in recent times, more's the pity:-/
Many here just luuurve "taking the piss" outa Dubbya.
More popular than any Orish or Kiwi jokes:->
George Bush is a "Bubba". Bubbas are good old boys, likable fellows,
friendly, generally funny, but not particularly adept at anything. They
usually get by with the help of friends who tend to feel a bit sorry for
their friend's ineptitude. Bubbas are invariably attracted to competent
people who will sooner or later prove to be a source in a time of need. ;-)
crikey...!.. do not those "Bubbas" get in the way of
things, at times?
.. an' just so you know ????
Reads of the use of "Bubba" in 'Net slang (USA)?
Bubba is the guy in the hood dangling the
"soap on a rope" for newbies.
Never having asked, I aint so sure what happens after
bending down to bite at that dangling lump of carbolic.. but
I am told....
... told one could wake up with two bob (dime X 2) in
yer hand and a rather sore arse..! :-D
I disagree. "Uncle" in this sentence is a title modifying "Jack" (which is
also why it's capitalized) and belongs with it. You wouldn't say
"... Dr., Jack, ...".
Although helping Jack, "off" a horse, isn't very nice, even if he is your
You must be a _real_ newcomer to USENET!
There is an inviolate _rule_ -- of _many_ decades standing --that every
spelling/grammar flame *MUST* contain at least one spelling/grammar error.
I was just "following the rules". <*BIG* grin>
ACK TUE ELLY..
It is very common for folks to misuse "you're".
There is "you are" which must be used.
and then there is "you're" which can be used, in
some instances of the same conveyed meaning
as "you are".
The example above is NOT one such situation.
"You ARE" applies, only.

I do not yet see _anyone_ here in <r.w> who could
throw the scpellun stone and survive the responses.
So best let sleeping dogs lie.. eh, an that... like :->
