There's nowt so queer as folk!

(Old saying. 1905 English Dialect Dictionary IV. 304)

Two overheard comments from two different people at the same farm stand within five minutes of each other. The first was from a man whose whose friend had picked out a bunch of carrots but had dropped them on the floor.

"Get another bunch. Those have now got dirt on them."

The second was by a woman who was getting into a very swish and shiny black Mercedes Benz with, I assume, her husband. "You are going to drive through some mud on the way home. I want people to know we've been to the country."

Hyacinth Bucket lives!
