For the benefit of our readers who are not good with tongues, and only

does not translate as “Grassy arse”. A “butte”

and some pleasant company for just 3 rupees. Obviously Jimmy was a bit
surprised. But it’s all right, he did his family proud: he made
sure that she paid him the money up front!
Hail the RA, now back amongst the bosom of his flock, where he dearly
loves to be.
Marie-Andre for getting the soixante-neuf.
Merete for her 50th time.
Casanova for being a noisy git!
The dodo remains at large. If sighted please let us know. Small reward.
