FW 1.28d, 1.29 --babies to follow--

1.28a: The babbelers with their thangas vain have been (confusium hold them!) they were and went...
1.28b: the blond has sought of the brune: Elsekiss thou may, mean Kerry piggy?: and the duncledames...
1.28c: And still nowanights and by nights of yore do all bold floras of the field to their shyfaun lovers...

[last] [fweb-toc] [fweet] [finwake] [theall] [pgs]

FDV: "For that saying is as old as the howths, wherever you [have]{lay} a whale in a whillbarrow (isn't it the truath I'm tallen ye?) you'll have fins & flippers to shimmy & shake."

For that saying is as old as the howitts.

phrase old as the hills

Howth (but, lowercase plural?)

Howitt: a mountain in Victoria, Australia

Lave a whale a while in a whillbarrow

AngloIrish accent: lave: leave
French laver: to wash
Danish lave: to make, to do
FDV: "have"

HCE as whale, above: "a groot hwide Whallfisk which lay in a Runnel"

'Live a while' almost makes sense

barrow = hill

(isn't it the truath I'm tallin ye?)

song Finnegan's Wake, chorus: 'Isn't it the truth I've tould ye'


Ulster accent: tallin = telling
tall tale = lie

to have fins and flippers that shimmy and shake.

maybe maggots??

VI.B3.159: 'flippers (whale)'

cf Aristotle on spontaneous generation [wiki]

Tim Timmycan timped hir, tampting Tam.

Tim Finnegan

the 'whale' gives birth because Tim was tempted to 'timp' her
tamper, tamp down

Tam = female
why hIr?

Fleppety! Flippety! Fleapow! Hop!

U-Circe (Virag, with tourette's?) "Flipperty Jippert."
(so maybe a repressed old man imagining procreation?)

flea powder?
pow, power
