Yesterday we had to go to Birmingham to a Tripe bunnyal with Old Fart, Lily, Old Bagg and Terri!

O what fun we had. We had to sit in a semi court room with Tossers the Solicitors the three Tripe representatives and a very nice young lady.

Also there was The owner of the land we live on with Old Fart and Lily. ( Sir Oron) that is what Old Fart calls him. We call him “The Shite“!

It was all quite interesting at the start and after only twenty minutes the Tripe lot called a dinner break. Well that was easy enough.

We wanted to go down the pub but Old Bagg wanted us to eat her German friendship cake. She gets upset if she don’t eat at the right time.

Anyhow lunch was over and we were back on our heads. The Meeting got pretty boring afater a while as the Tosser guy who reminded us of Simple Simon waffled on and on and on and on about telegraph poles and Amenity and  Hereditament and Percurian!!!!

He the Tosser was also trying to be clever when he said that “The Shite” had carried out the Improvements in the past six months as Old Fart we had said he had done it in the past six weeks. It was an obtuse use of wording trying to baffle us! Does he think we are that f**** stupid?

It could have gotten out of hand as The Tosser guy was trying to bully Lily and Old Bagg and Old Fart was not too impressed. The Judge Dude kept wagging a finger at Old Fart and Old Fart don’t like being wagged at either.

In the end they had to adjourn as The Tosser guy had waffled on that much that it was home time for the Tripe lot.

Anyhow we will have to return on June 14th for round two where the Tosser guy will ask Old Fart some questions that should be fun…we can’t wait!

The Dancing Partner

Mr Edwards likes to tango

But not always in the night

His slippery silver tongue

Has a certain way with words

As do his feet sure have a way

With stamping on peoples heads

I thought lawyers were honest

I thought it was an honourable

Thing to be

I guess I watched too many

James Stewart movies when I was a boy

I should have studied

The Shorter oxford dictionary instead

Amenity

Review

Hereditament

Percuriam

Presumption

Bullshit

One thing I always knew was

Bullshit baffles brains

A non college education

Taught me that

I did know that the past six weeks

Was in the past six months

But I also knew the difference

Just you keep dancing you tiny man

And take your dictionary

And you’re fishing gear with you.

We finally got to the pub where we had a nice relax. Terri poor thing was really upset and it took quite a while to settle her down.

Amenity 

1. The quality of being pleasant or attractive; agreeableness.

2. Something that contributes to physical or material comfort.

3. A feature that increases attractiveness or value, especially of a piece of real estate or a geographic location.

4. amenities Social courtesies.

Review

1. (noun) reappraisal, revaluation, review, reassessment
a new appraisal or evaluation
Synonyms: reassessment, revue, recap, follow-up, recapitulation, review article, followup, brushup, review,limited review, inspection, revaluation, reappraisal, critique, critical review, reexamination

Hereditament 

Property that can be inherited.

Percuriam

In law, a per curiam decision (or opinion) is a ruling issued by an appellate court of multiple judges in which the decision rendered is made by the court (or at least, a majority of the court) acting collectively and anonymously. In contrast to regular opinions, a per curiam does not list the individual judge responsible for authoring the decision, but minority dissenting and concurring decisions are signed.

Per curiams are not the only type of decision that can reflect the opinion of the court. Other types of decisions can also reflect the opinion of the entire court, such as unanimous decisions, in which the opinion of the court is expressed with an author listed. The Latin term per curiam literally means “through the court”

Presumption

An act or instance of taking something to be true or adopting a particular attitude toward something, esp. at the start of a chain of argument or action

the presumption of guilt has changed to a presumption of innocence

An idea that is taken to be true, and often used as the basis for other ideas, although it is not known for certain

underlying presumptions about human nature

An attitude adopted in law or as a matter of policy toward an action or proposal in the absence of acceptable reasons to the contrary

the planning policy shows a general presumption in favor of development

Behavior perceived as arrogant, disrespectful, and transgressing the limits of what is permitted or appropriate

he lifted her off the ground and she was enraged at his presumption

Bull shit 

is a common English expletive which may be shortened to the euphemism bull or the initialism B.S. In British English, “bollocks” is a comparable expletive, although bullshit is commonly used in British English. As with many expletives, it can be used as an interjection or as many other parts of speech, and can carry a wide variety of meanins. It can be used either as a noun or as a verb. Used as an interjection, it protests the use of misleading, disingenuous, or false language. While the word is generally used in a deprecating sense, it may imply a measure of respect for language skills, or frivolity, among various other benign usages. In philosophy, Harry Frankfurt, among others, analyzed the concept of bullshit as related to but distinct from lying.
