Max Bygraves claimed that he went to a school where half the pupils were Jewish and the other half Catholic. They started each day with the "Oy Vay Maria"

it's more of a Yiddish way of saying Oh my! However, I rather like Mary's interpretation!! As for the above - Midget, you were nearly responsible for my death there, I laughed whilst trying to eat my branflakes & banana...... :mutley:

Brilliant, Spoonbill, brilliant. And what about that "milking" thing you boys enjoyed? I bet somebody would be up for it.

Milking thing??? :oops:
Do you mean helicopters or biscuit game??!!!

No, no, CHAZ, a gruesome torture which took place further north on the male anatomy.

Somebody who has endured this practice explain again, please, for I can't remember all the details! :shock: :shock:

So glad to realise that CHAZ never suffered these agonies!

I shudder to think what these activities may involve ! :oops:

On a more, practical, note ----- WHEN is Old Blues Day 2010 ?
I am writing up my Appointments in the new Diary --- so I don't want to miss it.

I didn't see any mention in the Old Blue, or Housey !

This "milking" activity was described on a thread that dealt with bullying, I think. I was horrified. It involved, er, um,
the nipples of the victim.

Now I feel inspired to try to find it.
