Mixing high life with low life

The Università degli Studi di Firenze does inflict some odd assignments - it tested the city's sewers for evidence of cocaine use, and has concluded that peak times for riding on the white horse are August and December, and reckon that Florentines went through 12 kg of weasel dust last year to 1.149kg (precise, eh?) of brown sugar.

As a point of comparison, a similar test in what ansa.it rather sweetly calls 'swinging London' reckoned Londoners went through 730kg of nose tabasco.

While sniffing around for some of the more inventive terms for cocaine, I found out that Phil Woolas, the member of Parliament for Oldham East and Saddleworth and junior minister for local government has a namesake in a 'cigarette laced with cocaine; marijuana cigarette sprinkled with crack'. I will enjoy his next media appearance

Surely all universities are "of studies"? (All be it increasingly of gay rites, Barbadian hip-hop etc.)

TG - True enough. Gay rites? - as in the handkerchief code - or rights?

Do you think the City is about to expode into a riot of creative rediscovery C.? The early warning signs are all there

Cocaine is quite a cool drug isn`t it . I will take mine in the Holmesian manner whilst winning from my violin , a plangent high note hovering like a bird on the wind , the command , the fragility of it .

You wouldn`t understand Watson.

I mean C

A terrible warning...

A smallish musical download, 3.5 megs. Believed to be public domain.

I can actually play the mouth organ a bit. That was rather good ( man)  

Blogger Croydonian said... 2:59 pm

I rather like it too.

Croy - gay rights? They have the same rights as the rest of us - to vote, join a T.U. etc.

I'm not sure the hankie code is a rite, but the fatuous "coming out" certainly is.

The Celestial Empire's small cabinet used to have a Minister of Rites, to see they were done in accord with Confucian propriety. Those were the days.

I'll enlighten you with some geordie slang:

Hash - Tac
Marijuana - Bush
LSD - Trips
Magic Mushrooms - Shrooms
Speed - Whizz
Ecstacy - Pills
Cocaine - Toot
Crack - 'Wash it Back'

That's as far as we got before it all started to go pear shaped.
