For example "Laminate" - "to get a sheep pregnant"
Anyone else like to have  ago? Break the monotony  :eyelashes:

One of my favorites from The Meaning of Liff by John Lloyd and Douglas Adams is....,

Scrabby (n)

A curious-shaped duster given to you by your mother which on closer inspection turns out to be half an underpant.

What I can't figure out is how a smallholder can be suffering from monotony

monotous = dull, tedious, and repetitious; lacking in variety and interest.

Surely that's the last thing this farming life is?  :coat: :coat:  :innocent:
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Smallholding: Shame sh*t, different day. Sometimes also different sh*t, same day, and different sh*t, different day. But considerable quantities of sh*t, nonetheless!

This is ace! My husband showed me this guy doing a vegan bit, it was so funny, it’s about vegan sausages. I can’t seem to find it but it was somewhere on YT I think.
