  1. The "Someday Funny" looks ominous to me
    Is the offer of help genuine or are they hoodlums wanting to cut off part of Stanley's anatomy
    It would give his dress a nice flat front

  2. Stanley Baxter used to do impressions of the Queen (ie Elizabeth II). Perhaps, Stana, you could put one of those in the Femulator slot sometime? He also did brilliant sketches in his native Glasgow dialect, which he then mistranslated into posh English.
    I was amazed to find that he is still alive at the age of 96, as he was a household name in the 60s and 70s, and I hadn't heard anything about him in a long time.

  4. The Thick Glasgow accent would be a real treat with those legs. Proper heel too B

      As you can see from my name, my ancestors are from Scotland--south bank of the Clyde as well. Their wee toon of Renfrew sat where Glasgow International Airport stands today.

      Even with such a connection, I have to listen very hard to understand half of what is being said when an older Glaswegian speaks. I suppose with increasing migration and international media, the famed Glaswegian "patter" will fade into a softer, more generic Scots accent among future generations.
