Subject: RE: Penguin: Lovely Joan
Stooks are a lot smaller than stacks; I'm not entirely sure what "pooks" are in this context, but it's worth mentioning that they don't belong in 'Lovely Joan' at all; Bert Lloyd transplanted a verse from a completely unrelated song ('Blow away the Morning Dew') for reasons of his own. It was a Somerset version, so I'd look for "pooks" in a good dialect dictionary.
