MAVIS - There's something we can't see trying to tell us something we don't know

MR HUMPHRIES - Very likely.

CAPT. PEACOCK, after seeing mavis and Mr Humphries thrashing in their bed. - Nothing supernatural, certainly unusual.


RUMBOLD - I just heard a loud singing in the bathroom

PEACOCK - I suppose they have to go just like everybody else

RUMBOLD - Can I come in with you?

PEACOCK - No, I'll come in with you.

I thought it was "I just heard a nun singing in the bathroom ??"

I often wonder... how early do you have to wake up in order get up before "sparrow fart"?

That is what is so intriguging?... ...intrigueing?... puzzling about the idea of a "sparrow fart". I would guess all animals do it. But what is the smallest size animal that is large enough to produce one loud enough for humans to hear? And aren't cheeks necessary to produce the identifiable rattle? From a cheekless animal like a sparrow, wouldn't it produce more of a whistley sound? Do the feathers have the same effect as a silencer has on a gun? Can a strong one blow some feathers off? Or would you have to rely purely on smell to detect the sparrow fart?

Unlike humans that make cheese, what smell do sparrows compare their's to?
Do sparrows also use the phrase "He who smelt it, dealt it" when one of them cuts loose in a flock?

Was that a common country saying? Where did the saying originate? While funny, didn't it seem un-Mavis-like for her to say?

I'll have to remember these questions when conversation runs low on my next date.

This kind of explains the whole "Sparrow Fart" thing.

I would be surprised to find that sparrows or indeed any birds fart. Their whole system is designed to let fly with any leavings the moment they form. They can't hold back. Gas wouldn't be able to create any pressure.

"It smells of old priest!"

Another curious smell from G&F I'm not sure I want to detect!

Maybe they would say something like "Who cut the worm"?

Instead of saying someone laid an egg would they instead say "Who had a live birth"?

Jingle Bells, Birdman smells
Avenger had a live birth

OT, but if something is called a dinosaur, do they take it as an insult to their family?

My Brit history isn't up to snuff, but the Catholic priests who didn't flee England after they were outlawed used to hide in some strange places. Many old houses still have a priest hole where the priest hid in case the authorities showed up.

Particularly during the reign of the Puritan dictator Oliver Cromwell.
