Evening All

Prats of The Week
A grey, windy, wet Monday morning...why golly gosh tis time for another "Prats of The Week" Award!

This week it goes, somewhat belatedly, to those in charge of Warwickshire police.

Their crime?

A booklet has recently been issued to officers service in Warwickshire, advising them as to how they should communicate with the public.

It seems that phrases such as "'evenin' all", "good evening" and "good afternoon" have been banned.

For why?

Isn't obvious my loyal readers?

Words such as "evening" are, in the eyes of the word police, "subjective" and could cause confusion among different nationalities; as it may refer to different times!

Errmmm..that is such bollocks!

Whatever the nationality, the time of day is the same for everyone if they are located in the same timezone as the person issuing the greeting.

Unless of course Warwickshire police are in fact Timelords!

Warwickshire Police

Warwickshire police (or rather the people who created the booklet), well deserving Prats of The Week!

    Much simpler to adopt the Australian word "Guday" really. It's a suitably meaningless sound surely?

    Word verification is pratta. How perfect.

    Oh! No additional comment and slightly OT BUT the new Word verification is "consman". (I kid you not.)

    Excellent. Where do they find them?

    Sorry Grant but I dont fancy the idea of coppers walking round telling us to "Put the kiddle on" and "Throw another shrimp on the barbie".

    Ken, Bucko and Grant, howabout "Plod, my name is James Plod"? Or "Hello, hello, hello..and what is the nature of your pre-crime?".
    Can't someone set up a society for the protection of those old-fashioned good-natured thoughtful yet shrewd policemen and policewomen, who like to and are allowed to investigate and prevent burglaries, muggings, rapes, robberies and violent crimes?
