I like the the Georgie word 'hoy'!

Alan Partridge fans will know what I am talking about:

'Well, there was this macak monkey right and it got into my tent and eaten all me fags, so I hoyed it in the sea'

'You threw a monkey in the sea? I was searching for something pleasant and witty...that's just upsetting'

Ha ha! Apologies to those who do not know about or watch 'Partridge' but those of you who do will find it funny!

"...and dunner think I wunner coz I will"
