Post  plantoid on 4/20/2014, 12:17 pm

Hmmmm .

I'm obviously a bit mentally disturbed   Laughing  I have some answers to add

*1
Pistol duelling at dawn .

* 2

All of North America's land marks as the gap between Europe & it increases an inch or two each year. The Eurasian land mass is static apparently .

*3

Never heard of chives , ever lasting onions , perennial garlics , Chou d' Au Benton ( a form of perennial kale ) & cross cut stalk cabbages that can grow new veg for a couples of years so long as you don't cull the whole plant ?

 Rhubarb often dies if you harvest it too hard and leave less than four leaves & stalks on it .
 
* 6  
Dwyle as in Dwyle flonking .
A revival of an olde tyme art where the person with the Dwyle ( a square yard of linen cloth soaked in stale beer )  on a broom stick , flonks ( flings it off the broom stick )   at an opponent three or so  brooms sticks away . A flonk is scored if it hits to opponent and wraps around their face/head .

*7
Wot ...... No full stop . Laughing 

*8
Cooked lettuce is often sold  as part of a meal in all manner of restaurants though it is most often found in the vegie type ones ..often served with egg dishes wilted or cooked like spinach as a side dish or included as in a quiche

*9 

Synthetic Wellington boots / galoshes ( not natural rubber ones ) & of course sabots ( clogs ) & slip on's ( no laces or straps )

I had never heard of Dwyle Flonking.  Sounds like one of those things that happens after the second keg is tapped.

You left out the best rules Plantoid!  

1.  If the dwyle misses someone completely, the flonker has to down an ale-filled chamber pot (gazunder, as in goes-under the bed) before the dwyle is passed completely around the circle of girters while they chant "pot, pot, pot!"

2.  Points are awarded as follows:

+3: a "wanton" - a direct hit on a girter's head
+2: a "morther" or "marther" - a body hit
+1: a "ripple" or "ripper" - a leg hit
-1 per sober person at the end of the game

Sometimes for unknown reasons I'll read a thread from the bottom of the page and work my way  up.  This page really scrambled my head for a bit!

I think it ends when the second keg is empty as they often hold 88 pints .
