40 fascinating facts about portsmouth

Meantime, over at Portland, the word 'rabbit' had an entirely different connotation, locally being only whispered or even verboten.

The Dit? (I'll hold off repeating the legend I learned) Perhaps I could hand you over to Chief Inspector @janner please for the story from, ermm, the whores mouth is it?

Not having my copy of Jackspeak at hand perhaps @Seaweed, @Seadog or AN Other could kindly add that tome's version of 'rabbit' to round off these lexical definitions.

(Words sometimes intrigue me and, like @Sumo, I might even spool them 'creckly...)

Enough rabitting from this c/s for a few days - long awaited spinal decompression op. later today. :( Edited TODAY IS NOW CANCELLED - See Post 12.


BTW - Could anyone explain the true origin of the term 'bricking it'? ;)
