    How do I get its legs into my wellies dad?
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Speaking as a real Welshman (well, a Pembrokeshire one, at least), my two favourites are always:

    Who's coat is that jacket?

    and

    I put it on the table and when I looked again there it was, gone.
    Blog? What blog...?

    That's rude, look you.

    [EDIT] Welsh swearing sounds a bit crap, doesn't it? Nothing, nothing like as good as proper English swearing. "twll dy din": may as well mean "Tut-tut". 1-nil to the English, as per.

    Default More of a story

    Went to a lovely hotel in Cardiff for the rugger some years past and thought I’d pop into the hotel bar for an early pint at 11:30.

    Cheery chap behind the counter said that he couldn’t serve me until 12:00 as the bar wasn’t open.

    Not to bother, the pre-game was on the telly so I picked up a paper and had a quiet read.

    5 minutes later the same cheery lad asked if I’d like a pint whilst I was waiting!
    "Wait, I still function!"
