Topic: local sayings
Just had a laugh in this house with my wife and son.
I was mucking about with the guitar not playing much when my wife walked in the room and said it was " brass monkeys". My boy didnt know what that meant so I told him the real saying was for when it was really cold you would say " it is cold enough to freeze the baws off a brass monkey" ( baws as in testicles). He was in hysterics laughing.
I am thinking this might be a glasweigan saying ( from Glasgow). I might be wrong though.
Anyone else know this saying?
And any other funny local saying you know come from your part of the world?
I will be making a song up with this funny line in it. I might even call it " freeze the baws" and mention how cold it is and what it can freeze the testicles of certain things or animlas or people.
