Phrasing-hell in Scotland

Two funny peeps on a trip to Scotland produce a list of phrases. Worth a laugh.

Phrasing-hell in Scotland
by Dawn Anderson and David Ellis

Junk makes junk.
The bridge is the bridge.
The blonde leading the blind.
Head in the general direction.
Let the castle be your guide.
The art must go on.
I should have bought the yak postcard.
Laundray in the liebray
with a strawebray
and Col. Mustard with the lead pipe.
I’ll recover in the museum.
The Kraken is knockin’.
Nudity in paintings,
obviously on purpose.
Consistent inconsistencies.
The castle: commercial cramfest.
Put the backpack back on the back.
F U tattoo, the traffic hindrance.
The priority is to get to the place
in the first place then get your fish and chips.
That’s not the right green bus!
Have you got whisky that tastes like beer?
You’re not a man if it doesn’t taste horrible.
You’ve broken my marmite heart.
Croissant art.
Tarts don’t eat tarts at high tea.
Abandon sheep.
We came, we saw, we castled.
