I'm thinking about using Compo's "give over!" but not sure what it entirely means. Sounds sort of like "get out of here!" in the states as a form of exclamation/disbelief.
Are you thinking of gee-ore Onslow for 'give over '? The g is pronounced as G and not J. :oops: I 'ope tha knows what ahm trying to se ere. :)

There are a few Dwarfers on here and Lister uses " Get out of town" as an expression of disbelief and awe .

My favourite Compo expression and one that I have often used throughout my life is, when seeing a stranger approaching, "Hey up, who's this pillock?" :oops:

Well, if I used any of these lines from LOTSW, it would probably go over like a lead balloon.

But -- has anyone had a burst of nostalgia for anything they do on LOTSW?

Whenever Nora hangs up clothing on the line, I just want to jump through the screen. I can well remember those flapping clothes, sheets and towels; pulling the clothespins out of the clothespins bag; and occasionally on a brisk windy day, taking the wash down shortly after hanging it up.
