The wit & wisdom of pa trout

Brothers ... today is the 18th anniversary of the passing of my old man, pa trout.

I would ask you to raise a virtual glass, for he was truly one of us ... (6 foot 2, 18 stone, massive girth, spear bald since the age of 21, could fart the intro's to many of the top 70's love songs ... you get the picture)

To give you a measure of the man, I would like to share some of the following memories

#1 ... pa trout, to junior trout on his rugby debut "remember son, prop's don't have to get there first, just get there the most".

#2 ... ma trout announcing she was going back to college, to study politics and feminist studies; "we're gonna sweep the country" she says ... pa trout replies "you can start with the kitchen"

#3 ... wedding anniversary card from pa trout to ma trout "10 years married today ... it's well for ya"

#4 ... on hearing about Guinness Lite pa trout announced " ah... it will be good for the hairdressers to have their own beer, and leave the Harp to the wimmin"

pa trout ... we hardly knew ye

Truly a Trout among men, if he was still with us he would be our village elder.

Perhaps a village ancestor, a symbolic representative through the aeons who has come to embody what BGRH is all about?

#6 ... pa trout to motorist who fails to respond to green traffic light ... "are you waitin' for a colour you like ?"

#7 .... pa trout to startled motorist who fails to respond to green traffic light, and then cuts out in front of the troutmobile ... "did you get yer licence in a lucky bag ?"

#8 ... pa trout to startled motorist who has now completely flooded their engine "gerrout and milk the fuppin' thing!"

#9 ... pa trout on arriving home with a thirst "I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy"

Possibly the wisest words ever spoken. When will the book of Pa Troutisms be available Brother Trout?

Excellent stuff. Didn't think guiness lite *spit* was out for 18 years? Or perhaps the beer has fuddled the source.

*raises glass*

To Pa Trout - All things to all bald fat men.
