Translation: His pants are always fastened on the second clasp.
Original in Dutch or Twents: "Zijn broek staat altijd op de vrethaak."
Source: Twents Woordenboek, 3rd ed.
Language Notes: Meaning: A big eater. Derived from fact that some trousers have a second clasp, which you could use to give yourself a little room after a meal

In fact, one grand development of Time We found is this, that none declare it crime For each to be himself — to shout, to talk As children do — to dress, to leap, or walk, And freely think, in bounds of innocence.

With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me and about me, I walk,
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty

Damn revisionists, why can’t they ever make history better? Like have us all live in Antarctica and worship the Golden Penguin? That’d be great.  Dale Gribble

Cause we’re all in the mood for a melody, And you’ve got us feeling all right. Billy Joel.

There are 4 things you must never do: lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

Brianne Kelly Darragh . IRELAND.

But I pulled up at the Shingle Hut, a little wayside pub; Tired of mutton and damper, I wanted some decent grub, The barmaid was a buxom lass, I thought her very nice – You wouldn’t think, to look at her, but her heart was made of ice. Warren Fahey

Henry Lawson

1867-1922

But ‘Baby,’ the barmaid, her evidence gave—
A poor, timid darling who tried to be brave—
‘Now, don’t be afraid—if it’s frightened ye be—
‘Speak out, my good girl,’ said O’Hara, J.P.
Her hair was so golden, her eyes were so blue,
Her face was so fair and her words seemed so true—
So green in the ways of sweet women was he
That she jolted the heart of O’Hara, J P.
He turned to the other grave Justice of Peace,
And whispered, ‘You can’t always trust the police;
‘I’ll visit the premises during the day,
‘And see for myself,’ said O’Hara, Jay Pay.
(Case postponed.)

Dinna set yeir houss on haud even for ti fash yeir guidmither

    Don’t set fire to your house even to spite your mother-in-law. This seems a wise precept, even when mothers-in-law are tiresome.
