Always Use Good English

A man's cupping his hand to scoop water from a Highland burn.
Gamekeeper shouts, 'Dinnae drink thon water min, it's foo o' coo's shite n pish.'
Man replies, 'My good fellow, I'm English ....repeat that in English.'
Gamekeeper replies, 'I said use both hands - you get more that way.'

received in an e-mail today, cheers Fiona!
apologies to those South of the Border.
