You say "tomati", ah say "tomato"


Boatim i Boundary Street
1983

The long-running conflict of opinion ower whether its 'tomati sauce' or 'tomato ketchup' ends in chaos as Yan dooks his wee brithir Nevets in a pan i Dolmio.

Has anyone ever figured out the difference between catsup & ketchup?

Spookily enough, that guy looks like Yan.

Tricky said...

Fut, Hinrees in the toon will test yer een sicht

WeeGC said...

Instead of a mini me. It's a big Yan.

yan said...

Flash,how you doin? That guy looks nothin like me by the way as he is totally hairless in the chest department. Me, on the other hand, is Tarzan

yan said...

Ketchup is sumhin ye dae when ye are laggin behind;)

futin det said...

No havin seen Yan in the flesh for many moons now, I still stand by by former statement.

futin det said...

And that guys got the longest left arm i've ever seen on anyone.

Tricky said...

if that's the way we evolve Fut, you'll soon be oot i business. Folk wull be able to scrape thur ain coarns. Even fat folk.

futin det said...

That's true.
Then again, as Shakespeare once said:

"If yer auntie hud baws she'd be yir uncle"

lorne said...

ur yi shair thats tomaties in no a death by a thoosand yaised tampons.

Tricky said...

Fut, wid yer Auntie no need a nob an aw?

futin det said...

Eh, no, ah don't think any of my aunties need a nob ?

Tricky said...

Fut, does that not negate your Shakespearian argument juxtapositioning two members of your family and the relative ease of interchanging their roles, given the correct set of circumstances, no matter how improbable those circustances be?
Or is it just that most metaphors don't bear close examination?

I don't think we should take Shakespeare too literally.

For example in Julius Caesar (II, ii, 30-31) he asserts that,

"When beggars die there are no comets seen;
The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes."

However i remember when Aggy Doo goat run ower wi a Bucket Moatir it Dower House, Halley's Comet wis visible moving through the constellation Aquarius.

Tricky said...

Fair point Carrier. In Richard III he wrote:
"Talkers are no good-doers: be assur'd
We go to use our hands, and not
our tongues"
an we aw ken thats no richt

I think it was Chaucer who said:

"Too much intelectual masturbation, doth render a man gay"

Tricky said...

Ooo, listen to her

futin det said...

"Ooo, listen to her"

Ye'll no find that in shakespeare !
