Now that we all know about Strine, it's time to reveal the true depths of
Professor Afferback Lauder's research.
He also discovered Fraffly - the language spoken by some denizens of the
south of England.
"Sholleh you compy sirius. Shears a fess lecker bet lex, end four thombs.
Ay fender paw stiffleh noss yetting."
"Meddier boy, youm snofferget her femmlair are Bocksher people, enchies
fraffly clefferetter renching flozz."
Translating into English, we get:
"Surely, you can=92t be serious. She=92s a face like a battle axe, and fo=
thumbs. I find her positively nauseating."
"My dear boy, you must not forget her family are Berkshire people, and
she=92s frightfully clever at arranging flowers."
Aorta do something about it.
