Probably some typically messy mash up between bucket list and trail from Generation Z like.
I’ve stopped asking. We have to live with them now, am building solidarity.
Ooh! Well, I'm even more out of touch than you, then. Haha! Because I don't know what a "trail from Generation Z" is.
Still, although I don't get to go out and about and see these wonderful art works, I do notice that they seem not to include the mouse. "Jeemy" or "Jeemie", I can't remember which spelling. But Jeemy was very important. How can it be fair to neglect Jeemy's frequent part in the tales? Jeemy the "wee poultice"?
Just a lot of bollocks as per
All the Aberdeen Wullies have been gathered in Marischal Quad - prior to being auctioned next week:
Forgive me but isn't "boab" slang for penis? And "boaby" is a poo?
'Boab' may be more modern Scottish slang for penis (the Scot sat next to me is 77 and can't say for sure) but in the Broons/Oor Wullie usage it is a diminutive of Robert and in this context a minced oath for 'god'.
Boaby (not Boab), the Scots form of Bobby, and therefore a name, like Willy or Johnson, is slang for penis in the West. Oor Wullie is from the East.
Jobby is poo. You may be thinking of the rhyming slang "Greyfriars". As in "I'm just away for a Greyfriars". From Greyfriars' Bobby = Jobby.
The Marischalled ranks of Wullies, if you will.
In the North East, in at least the Scots spoken here as opposed to Doric, boaby has always meant penis, whilst bob has always been - Bob, or Bobby,
But a fair bit of Broons-spik reflects the central belt instead of proper Lallans/Scots.
The North East Wullies raised a total of £316,700 at auction last night
Here's a list of how much each went for:
How well each Oor Wullie did under the hammer - Evening Express
Charlie's Wullie raised £6000 - so good for her..!
The bairns of my two cousins, Inverness
Or “burns” as we say in Inverness as we lack the poetry of the rural areas haha
Separate names with a comma.
