    Default A question

    I am the Nemesis of the Vole.

    What am I?
    If you post idiocy, don't get upset if you are seen as an idiot.... I don't.

    Here endth the lesson.




    Have you seen any combat?

    Seen a little on TV.

    You talk the talk, but do you walk the walk?

    I think it might be an owl, but I can't remember which breed of owl, as I haven't studied owl-lore for some time. Could it be the one that rhymes with mulagutawny soup? Or is it not the owl, but the mink?

    I am aching to see a new Australian film production, but am concerned that I might become a little confused by some of the dialogue. I was hoping someone might help me out by translating a couple of the opening lines of dialogue into Oz for me?

    "....In thunder, lightning, or in rain?" (not a TV weathergirl)

    "...Fair is foul, and foul is fair,
    Hover through the fog and filthy air."
    (A Shara trip to Blackpool?).

    You must be the only person on the planet aching to see a new Australian film.

    People usually ache only after seeing them.

    I'll have a go at translating for you.

    "....In thunder, lightning, or in rain?" (not a TV weathergirl)

    Oz

    There's these three town bikes*
    Chunder** Ning*** and Train****
    Get into a hurlyburly
    And don't know if they'll meet again.

    *Town bike = Sheila everyone rides.
    ** Chunder = spew. Metaphor for Australian life.
    *** Ning = Ning Nong. Dummy. Not smart. Close to ideal sheila if she's a nympho and her dad owns a pub. Also close to ideal even if frigid but owns a pub herself.
    ****Train= Like a town bike, but carries a lot more passengers. More like a regional interchange hub.++


    ++ Not to be confused with the magnificent radio broadcast about a horse racing meeting where two racecourse clubs had combined to run a meeting at one course. It was famously introduced by the radio announcer as "The intercourse championship."


    "...Fair is foul, and foul is fair,
    Hover through the fog and filthy air."
    (A Shara trip to Blackpool?).[/QUOTE]

    There’s two translations possible.

    One

    One of the sheilas farts
    The other two reckon that's fair
    But the stench lifts them off their feet
    And hangs them in the filthy air.
    Then a fog comes in
    And they lose sight of each other.
    Battle or something causes it.

    Two

    It’s a Sharia trip to Blackpool.

    The correct version was “Hover through hog and filthy air.

    Need I say more?

    There’s going to be a battle at the end of that.

    Glad I’m not the bus driver.


    Just as a curious aside, WTF does this have to do with voles?

    Whatever they are?

    We have Poles down here, but they're not Nemesissy people. I think.

    Thank you for that wonderfully, colourful translation. I now feel confident that, armed as I am with a whole new index to my dictionary, I'll be able to follow the dialogue. Either that, or take the book in brail form and follow it as the film progresses.

    I think 1000YDS has been watching 'Tales (Tails?) of the the Riverbank' with Rattie, Hammie and friends - Either that, or he's due some R&R?

    We also serve who only sit and type. In Orstaylan.

    Nah.

    It's the owl that can't vote from Bill Bailey's 'Bewilerderness'

    The Disenfranchised Owl

    I am Death
    A Winged Beast
    I am borne on the velvet wings of night
    And I'm hungry for a feast
    I am the nemesis of the vole
    My heart is black as coal
    You can kill me with a trowel
    I am an owl

    Very nice, but short of finding its daytime hidey hole you'd be doing well to kill an owl with a shotgun, never mind a trowel.

    Perhaps the vole has the trowel?

    You drink from a bottle?

    How quaint.

    And civilised.

    I just shove my head into the keg.

    Used to be a trough, but the brewery wouldn't send the tanker around any more.

    You're a hoot and a howl, sir - I drink from a glass.

    (note: I pay respect to your new rank - no more troughs for you, sir!)
