1.30d: Come on, fool porterfull, hosiered women blown monk sewer? Scuse us, chorley guy! You tollerday...

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

synopsis: Mutt meets Jute — Mutt attempts to address him

What a quhare soort of a mahan!

AngloIrish accent: quare: queer

queer sort of a man

Dutch soort: sort, kind

AngloIrish mahan: bear
Mahan = Irish surname

It is evident the michindaddy.

why not evidently?

Dialect miching: playing truant, skulking, shrinking from view (obsolete pilfering, cheating)
Hamlet III.2 "miching malicho"

miching daddy

so, the fallen HCE?

Lets we overstep his fire defences

let us

"we" = narrator and reader??? so we've entered the story?

step over

Danish fire: four

fire at mouth of cave? (no cave has been mentioned)

and these kraals of slitsucked marrowbones. (Cave!)

kraal: fairly sophisticted stockade, pen, enclosure, or even village in South Africa (from Afrikaans)

Neanderthal Man cracking and sucking marrowbones in his cave


Dutch merg: marrow

Latin cave!: beware!

He can prapsposterus the pillory way to Hirculos Pillar.

perhaps propose to us
preposterous (why?)
poster us, post us, point us

'us' again includes reader

pillory = whipping post
billowy way (poetic cliche incl Walter Scott: sea)

Latin hirculus: little goat, smelly person

Pillars of Hercules (the northern of the two 'pillars' is unmistakeable, the southern one ambiguous, so maybe we're on the African side, eg in South Africa? maybe travelling by ship?)
