Sorry, I got several requests for translations from the Old High Selfridgian:
        >"F U N E M N X?"
        >"S V F M N X!"

I shouldn't have put that on an international list--You have to know the
way that the letters (and their equivalent words) are prounced by a certain
class of Londoner:
        "Ef you eny em en ex?"
        "Es ve ef em en ex!"
ie
        "Have you any ham and eggs?"
        "Yes we have ham and eggs!"

Very slight isn't it :-)
