‘I’ve to go to the bog’ ‘I got stuck behind a tractor’ and ‘you can’t beat the smell of silage’.

  • I’ve to go to the bog.

Sure, how are you going to keep warm for the winter?

  • I got stuck behind a tractor.

I would have walked faster, he was driving that slow.

  • The neighbour’s cattle broke into my front lawn.

There wasn’t a blade of grass to be found in the field they were ‘grazing’ in.

  • You can’t beat the smell of silage.

If only you could bottle it.

  • A squirt of slurry is better than any best-selling fragrance.

But the neighbours definitely don’t agree.

  • Mass is at 10am in the morning.

Cancel all other plans.

  • I’m going into town for a ‘drop’.

Just a pint or two to quench the thirst!

  • There’s a grand stretch in the evening.

There’s nothing quite like it.

  • We could do with ‘liquid sunshine’ - it will make the grass shoot up!

Only a couple of drops, not a few thousand gallons.

  • We’re popping off to the mart for a family day out!

Something to tickle everyone’s fancy.
