    I went to the big city today to get measured for my farther of the bride whistle, what a shock, the tailor was a very attractive young lady, the chest measurement was bad enough and i thought the inside leg would kill me, but she was obviously an expert because i hardly felt any thing, any ways up, i saw the material Kia has chose and i tell you this is going to be the greatest sacrifice of my life, but then it will be worth it.

    The whistle is some thing different, when one says, i am going to wet me whistle, it means i am going down the pub.
    Other than that rhyming slang usually has two words for one like, apples and pears for stairs.
    or jimmy riddle for piddle.

    Shoes that have pointed toes, i think they go back to the 60s.

    So to recap. Wolram went to a wedding wearing a whistle while walking on winkle pickers.
