Thread Name: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean?
Subject: RE: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean?
Now there's a thing. I used to sing this song years ago before most people started worrying about killing nice furry animals. I haven't sung it for years, chiefly for fear of offending these people. Yesterday, a vegetarian lady of my acquaintance (who used to hunt foxes) suggested that I sing it!
The question is, will I get hounded out (ouch!) of the club? Does singing the song imply approval of the pastime? Does it matter?
(Alright, the questions are - but it doesn't sound right!)
(And I live about 4 miles from Altcar, home of the Waterloo Cup)
