Previously on the Blog:Norrie, have you seriously never heard "funk" used in that context?"Funk et up the park!" which in today's parlance might be "Get rid!"?Perhaps its an East Neuk term and just maybe it was a Pittenweemer who brought the word into the world and not some lawd fae Detroit or Philly.
1735-45; perhaps < early Dutch dialect fonck meaning fear.
Could be Glen. New one on me I must admit!
The 00s only go up to 2009, of course, so that rules out many of the masterworks you were considering.
"funk it up the park": a quote from a certain Adam during interview with Jim White on a World Cup preview for national television.Was it 1990 Adam?
.....talking about fitbae stories.....during the #indyref one famous commenator was greeted with " get the funck ootae here ye english c***"...in shettleston of all places....the commentator himself was born and bred in shettleston......and before anyone tries to guess who the culprit was it wasn't that firebrand who is regularly played on GIO, no...she kept her vitriol and expletives for byres road....so a happy new year to everyone...hope its a year of reconciliation... it is for me ...i've reconciled to dumping all my Yesser cd's and whenever they pop up on radio ,... i switch it off....i have my dignity to protect....cheers frae the dale
Aw funk.....dinnae mention Dignity...!!!I'll be sailin up the east coast
Through villages and towns?

Aye, DC. 1990.Did I say "funk"??
Johnson and Boswell.
The big foaming breakers would give me the shakers...
The legend persists about here Adam. A technique used by a number of local fitbaw clubs I hear, and validated by one 'revered' ex Everton Scottish manager. You wid hae been revered yersel had you not emigrated the way you did. A shame.Nae breakers in the East Neuk, the wind wiz fae the wrong direction. Now, if it wiz a Sou' Aister......
Tell us more tales of the sea, DC.
Oh! It's lovely and calm when you're frying your ham
Arrrrrrrrr........That be true, matey
You can darn your socks while you're still in its locks...
