Just run down through the postings above:
John from Hull : "Should foxhunting be banned?"
Spaw : "Yes.........It should be banned for all Gay, Islamic, pilots........Also possibly from Scotsmen who have been living in the states too long."
John from Hull : "Can you eat foxes?"
Now taking American slang terms into account I thought that Spaw was on the right track and really was expecting an immediate response from Spaw to JoH's second question. Even more so when next from JoH we get:
"i saw a fox a couple of days ago, it was a bit skinny and rough looking, so I would not fancy eating it anyway, it did not look very tasty.Do you have foxes in America?"
Golden opportunity missed?
John if you did see see a fox a couple of days ago that was a bit skinny and rough looking - You must either have something to do with the fashion industry, or you are obviously going to the wrong bars or clubs.
I can't speak for the status in America but over here in sunny Norway there's a rake of foxes, hunting them seems to be the most single minded obsession of the bulk of the male population and they are regularly eaten with great enthusiasm. No fatalities as yet reported.
