We hear things retrospectively when we have understood them - Marcel Proust
I confess to loving these overheard fragments. I hope there is a compilation somewhere (website? Christmas stocking-filler novelty book?) but of course I would be plagued with fears as to their authenticity. I read of a nice one - again, chatting women - which went "...So when I get up earlier than them, I spit in all the breakfast-bowls...".A beauty, heard by a colleague in a Lincolnshire pub:"You know that bit of skin between a woman's arsehole and her fanny?""Yeah""Well, it's the strongest skin in the human body!""No kidding?""Yeah, it's so strong you can hang a twelve-stone pig from it".
Mark - as a parrot.Sam - "...So when I get up earlier than them, I spit in all the breakfast-bowls...".Isn't that from the unexpurgated version of Goldilocks?
