back in the ninebold sixties

a joyfold and star-studdy footbally kidney
with dream makey in the eyeboles
met Sr Stanley at a public meety night …
long time..long time..even before Totteny endy
the twenty sevvy game unbeatyfold..
and there…in that pricely momo of questie answery
and still barely a young manifold in the ordinance surf-spray
he asked Sir Stanley…….

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 “Well, erm, actually this is a very good question and topicold.
I would say that if the forward line have a symmetrical teamworkers and that they can from the first passit of the ball…
take in mind the measured beat of a one, two, throo or fido…
so that the ball can falollop out to the wingers
and a very fine trittly how in a run and drop-kick
and carry one and shooting in the goal
If they can get by without an offsiger
which is known on the ref
and don’t throw the bottload
because he’s only doing his best.
But, er,
it’ll be hard on their halfbackers
because I don’t think they’ll get a chance to do a falolloper shooty
on account of the front line with their deep joy of
shall we say, an express in their enthusiasm
to the first who to clop falollop in the goalmouth.
Oh yes. Anyway it’s a very good question, sir
; it’s not much about music
excepting that half-time in the band falolloped huffalo-dowd. “***

I wrote the first part of the above surrounded by petrol and postage receipts..all taxi-taxi and way behind.. on the getting them in on timey.. prompted in part by by Clik The Mouse’s earlier tribute to Sir Stanley Unwin.. who died earlier this month…..and again when .i came across this Tottenham Cup predicition from an actual question and answers with the great man himself…Stanley was always one of my favourite inspirees of nonsense vocabulary and stories..very in much in the mold of other nonsense story-tellers, gobbledy gook answers
and legends in time like Spike Milligan,Eddie Izzard, Edward Lear,Alex Ferguson,Arsene Wenger and of course Teddy Sherringham … ..i found the extract on a web-site… The World of Yak…and it reminded me how.we used to talk for hours in our own versions of Unwinese to impress girls in the playground…it still works ..apparently…we will miss u Stan from the botty of our heartlodes.
