You can get the same sound effect by wrapping a piece of tissue around a hair comb and blowing.

Is that what they are doing?:D

Do you remember the Massacre of Amhrán na bhFiann at the 1996 Olympics?

Why isn't choir spelt chior?

Why butterfly rather than flutterby?
It was originally spelt quire, and borrowed from Old French quer. Some time in the 17th century people started spelling it choir so that it would look more like Modern(ish) French choeur. The new spelling remained ... alongside the old/original pronunciation.



An alternative German name for “butterfly” is milchdieb (“milk thief”).

I'm keeping schtum...I want to get through the summer before I'm ordered to get the snip
Tis nothing, got it done about a year and a half ago, piece of piss.

Drove home after it.

If anything it's made me even friskier, something about being able to dine at the restaurant without having to pay the bill that does it.
