Just thought I'd share some stuff with you all. I realise that most folk here are not from Scotland, but I hope the humour translates. An English female friend once asked what a "sneb" was, and what was the meaning of the phrase "getting a sneb on". Not the sort of thing to say to someone who is already in a bad mood! - it's this :

I have to tell you, Mr Jim.. I was chuckling over this bit you've posted when my wife walked through the room and asked what was so funny.

It got a laugh out of her. You have a way with words, sir.
