Subject: My Old Man's A New Labour Dustman
From: Dick The Box

My husband is a refuse operative and he wears the requisite refuse operative's protective headgear as specified under current health and safety legislation. He wears hi-viz protective clothing on his lower body, and rents a simplex apartment in a multi-occupancy dwelling owned by the local housing authority. He resembles the fruit of plants of the genus musa by wearing size 14 slip-resistant protective footwear, and because he struggles to get them on in the morning he refers to them deprecatingly through the medium of horticultural cockney rhyming slang.

Almost certainly been done before but it kept me amused at work this morning making it up!

Any other songs that could benefit from similar reworking?

Does your low-calorie additive-free long-lasting comestible suffer deterioration in its oral stimulation factor when deposited on the upright supporting member of your sleeping facility during the nocturnal hours?

If your maternal parent forbids you to indulge in further mastication, do you allow this product to undergo an aesophagal transit as a gesture of hostility?

Can you secure it to either of the oval lymphoid tissues situated in your throat, and then propel it vigorously from side to side?

Does your low-calorie additive-free long-lasting comestible suffer deterioration in its oral stimulation factor when deposited on the upright supporting member of your sleeping facility during the nocturnal hours?

We've used all eawr coal up and we're reet deawn to t cinders.
If t bum-bailiff ca's he wain't know wheer fot faind us

We are below, in the basement where dust accumulates on the casements. We have utilised what anthracite was at our disposal , and hence are reduced to the igneous residue. Were the landlord's representative to make social intercourse, we might prove difficult to locate, if not impossible ; for we are, as aforesaid, below, in the basement, where the dust, notwithstanding, accumulates on the casements.

Not to be a spoil-sport, but the first few words should not be interpreted separately as "paternal significant other half" and "in his later years", but rather be combined as "the legal partner of my maternal parent at the time of my birth, or person who has since acknowledge his parental obligations towards me".

"I am in accordance with your useful fellow craftman's suggestion" replied Frederick as he ascended the portable structure consisting of two long sides crossed by parallel rungs.

With the tool that he had consisting of a metal bar with a single curved end with flattened points, equipped with a small fissure on the curved end, he executed a impact of considerable kinetic energy.

At this juncture he found himself at some professional disadvantage as approximately 453.6 kilograms of waste building aggregates fell under gravity onto the apex of his parietal bone, close to the sagittal suture, being unprotected as it was by approved safety headwear made to the appropriate standard.

In the event Charles and myself retired from the workplace to the designated rest area and had a further infusion of the leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis (L.) before subsequently clocking off from the site and returning to our respective abodes.

I partook of a little alchohol about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my cranium
Wherever I may perambulate
On terra firma, H2O or atmospheric density
You will always find me chanting this melody
Indicate the way to my abode.

Au revoir to the young lady who has been elected to represent the very best of America's oven-baked pastry-topped comestibles.

I directed my vintage Detroit-built automobile to the flood protection embankment, but found the aforementioned facility totally deficient in aqueous fluid.

And the elderly Southern gentlemen there assembled were consuming various distilled liquors, including both imported varieties (Caledonian or Hibernian?)* and locally produced options.

While chanting that this specific point in the calendar would be the occasion of their(or possibly my own?)* demise.
