Curious interpretation by raistlin

User avatar
A young visitor (6 years old) was with us the other day and to keep him occupied he was watching some of my railway videos, specifically, the approach of a class 55 hauled train just crossing the river Tyne prior to entering Newcastle Central station in the 15mph speed limit and the ubiquitous "diddly-da, diddly-dum" sound of wheels over rail joints was very obvious and miladdo decided to mimic the noise, as we all have done, I'm sure.

I took me a moment or two to realise that his choice of words was somewhat unusual albeit in perfect syncronisation: "a comfortable dump - a comfortable dump".

I hadn't the heart to comment or investigate where he might have heard the phrase before.

Go on - try it yourself, it fits the rhythm perfectly. :lol:

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?
