Subject: Help: recitation
From: Stewie
Date: 11 Mar 01 - 08:37 PM

A friend of mine is looking for a recitation about a wedding. He thinks it may be from the 192Os. It is a play on odd British pronunciations - for example, Worcester pronounced Wooster etc. There's not much to go on, but perhaps a UK 'catter may know it. The following is all he can recall:

Two lines are:

Then the curate (a BA from Caius)
Let out an incredible snaius

And:

The choir was from Beauleigh

The bridegroom was 'from Cholmondeley' and the bride was 'quite colmondeley'.

That's it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

--Stewie.

Aye, it's a weird language. Try:
Cauis = Keys
Beauleigh = Bewley
Cholmondley = Chumley

Then there's:
Featherstonehaugh = Fanshawe Hague = Pillock

Anyone here know Molly, who does great monologues? I think I've heard him do this, but don't have any way of contacting him.
