Heard the one about the German, the Greek and the Irishman ....

"Stoat, Stoat you say. Shalla one fetcha ones gun?"
"No, no you thick Royal twat to be sure. It's Stout, it's a drink."

A little quieter in the garden last night, not helped by the breeze, a little drizzle and a Robin that beat me to it.
