honest guv! I 'aven't been on the turps (hic) or anyfink

(West of the Pacific,do they know what 'turps' is???...)


  1. Turps is not always turps,
    As turps are necessary slurps
    When a diagnosis comes and chirps,
    "It's time for your anaesthetic burps...."

    1) Transurethral resection of the prostate (commonly known as a TURP, plural TURPs, and rarely as a transurethral prostatic resection, TUPR) is a urological operation. It is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). As the name indicates, it is performed by visualising the prostate through the urethra and removing tissue by electrocautery or sharp dissection. This is considered the most effective treatment for BPH. This procedure is done with spinal or general anaesthetic.

    2) Australian slang for alcoholic beverages, as in "on the turps."

  2. Shall you dance,
    Even prance?
    What then chants
    In that trance?

    Dancing nude?
    Veils eschewed,
    Or e'en semi-nude?
    Arty, never lewd.

    Cut a rug?
    Then what drug
    Gives its tug?

    Wink, wink, wink.
    Did one drink?
    Why, yes, I think...

    -- A ginny souse
