Why? I like the sound o a load of verduns, whatever or whomsoever they may be
Perhaps however, lets not get too excited about spring just yet, hard theough that may be, there are plenty of nights for frost and even snow yet - grit your teeth and hold your horses - hmm, sounds very uncomfortable that.
Verdun always means suffering to me, both French and German, sorry but The Great War has always had that effect on me. Some of the most savage battles, hand-to-hand in many cases, maybe the worst of the war, even worse than Gallipoli if that can be believed.. Sorry Verdun, just what it invokes.
I thought this thread was going to about collective nouns - a lad of Verduns, a pack of wolves .....
Does 'a load of old Verduns' mean the same as 'a load of old B*****s' from the Fast Show?
Verdun wrote (see)
Oh dear! A "pack of wolves" now I'm disappointed. Aaaaaah!
... but better than a flock of bustards or a drove of bullocks
Wotcha think of this weather then? Load of old Verduns.
Ohhhh, is my ikkle wickle Verduns upset now? Mummy didn't mean to hurt your feelings!
Mwaaaahhhhh. Mummy kiss it better now!
Hang on a second.....how old is ikkle wickle Verduns? Methinks he is older than Mummy Muddy Paws! Wicked! Tricksy! False!
Naughty Verduns, Mummy is putting you on the Naughty chair, one minute for every year of your life. Mummy thinks you will need to take your Beano with you.
