Warner Brothers of Delhi - Howler

Postby dognose » Sun Jan 23, 2011 4:52 am

Surely a contender for 'Howler of the Month'! A bottle ticket by Warner Brothers of Delhi, engraved with the mis-spelling of Whisky.

A drunken pronunciation, perhaps!

No, no, I think that’s not the »Howler-of-the-Month« or a ‘drunken pronunciation’.

Hello All

No, no, I think that’s not the »Howler-of-the-Month« or a ‘drunken pronunciation’ — that’s theEvening prayerof some body in front of a locked up bottle of Whisky or whatever is tasty.

As a not Eton-educated Continental European I think, that also an Eton-educated individual wouldn’t say: »I wish to have just now the key of this Sterling silver Τάρταρος«.

I think also in Eton there would be »Wish key« sufficient too.

That’s the very well known British humour.

Kind regards silverport
