Subject:Re: fraudulent messages and potty-talk From:Stan Brown <stbrown -at- NACS -dot- NET> Date:Wed, 10 Apr 1996 20:41:00 -0100
I was taken aback for a moment by the mention of "Guy's potty-talk,"
until I remembered that "potty" in U.K.-speak is a word like "dotty",
"crackers", or "ga-ga".
Did you ever hear the story of the woman who called to complain to the
police because the boys going past her house were _whistling_ dirty songs?
