Explain someone please. I can remember seeing a piccie of Philthy Phil Taylor (ex drummer for Motorhead, yes, I'm basically a headbanger (not necessarily mine, be warned... ;) )) proudly displaying a T-shirt with almost this slogan ("Whale Oil Beef Hooker"). I didn't know what it meant then, I'm none the wiser now...

Onyane ken langer examples o this peculiar linguistic art? The ainly ither ane Ah've seen is a rendition o "Little Red Riding Hood" (ca'd "Ladle Rat Rotten Hut") that stairts as follows:

"Wan spawn term, dare worsted ladle gull hoe left wetter murder honor itch offer lodge dock florist..."

(Read it oot loud a few times...a grait bit tae memorise for impromptu pub/ceilidh orations.)

I vaguely remember an old joke, in which a man with a strong German accent is trying to describe a candle, the only bits I remember are...
Ja ein kendall, nein not ze town in der Lake District. I mean ein kendall mit ein vick, nein not der stuff for rubbink on your chest ven you haff a cold. etc etc

No one will get it if the say 'who'ked rather than 'hu'ked. Does that help Raedwulf?

Did you know that Lemmy sang lead vocals on Hawkwinds 'Silver Machine' btw. Nothing to do with the thread but since you mentioned Motorhead:-)

There's also the one where you can adopt a Jamaican accent if you say "beer can sandwich".

The effect's lost with a Gloucester accent tho'

This phrase has now been immortalized by mystery author Louise Penny in her Three Pines / Armand Gamache series, twelve books long and little sign of stopping. Penny puts it in the mouth of one Billy Williams. I recommend "How The Light Gets In," quoted by permission from Leonard Cohen.
