similarly whiskey honey could be honey made by a particular type of bee or a fermented honey.
also, how is it mixed together? is the whiskey strained through the honey combs? or is it a jar of honey mixed in a bowl with a bottle of whiskey? what proportions is it in?
would have been a better example!
you are quite right.
it's exactly the same idea though.
but last saturday night/sunday morning, 4am, i was walking through town. some fat bald ben sherman-ite approached me a nd said "are you from manchester?"

last night i jokingly called my sister a Fascist. My mother asked what a Fascist was and i said Hitler was one. She responded 'Who is Hitler?'

My friend who is known to come out with ridiculous comments thought Mother Theresa was a leprechaun.
Apparently she confused the mythical irish creature with lepers, whom Mother Theresa worked with.

Me: It's not exactly Ecuador
Her: I dunno, I've never been to Africa

(in relation to a phone call)('How do you do that 1471 thing?'
on which their being at university has little or no bearing.
indeed quite funny :-D
do you just pick up the phone and dial 1471? or do you type it in when the receiver is down? do you wait for a voice to read it to you?
i mean, the guy probably knew that it involved typeing in 1471 at some point, but might not have done it before.
last night, while we're playing Pixies: "Can you play some indie please?"

friend's former housemate once told me authoritatively that black people can't swim.
And didn't know who won the second world war.
Come on, the Ruskis!
but it is true that on average black people are more dense, thus making ti harder for them to swim and for whatever reason many less black people swim than white people.
Essentially your housemate was wrong, but not totally misguided.
that their bones were LESS dense? i remember my ex-marine physics teacher telling us that with some bollocks story about watching them float when he was in the south pacific.
I know that - I suspect there might have been a grain of logic.
But on the other hand, shhhh, stop spoiling it.

There was a question in the pub quiz the other night where we were asked to name the top 10 gold-producing countries in the world. I came to work the next day and asked my boss, to see how many he could get. After giving 4 or 5 answers, he suddenly said 'Is it a fish?'
That has been my stock answer to any work question ever since
