The mouth. Someone considered to be well-endowed in this department may have it said of him that he has a mooth like the Clyde Tunnel. A person who has irregular or stained teeth may be described as having a mooth like a row of condemned hooses or buildings.
One of the unpleasant after-effects of a heavy drinking session, especially when mixed with smoking is a mooth like a pocket of douts (cigarette butts). A similar expressing is a mooth like a badger’s bum or arse. One can’t help but wonder why a badger should be considered particularly unpleasant in this department and indeed, how anyone found out.
The phrase you’ve a mooth indicates an offer of food or drink to a guest:
“Ye know, Ah sat in the hoose for a good hoor an’ a hauf, an’ they never thought tae say, ye’ve a mooth.”
And here’s me thinking that “ye’ve a mooth” is something that’s used to make a martini. 😉
Yay! Word of the week is BAAAACKKK! You know how I’ve missed it!
But where’s the audio link? I live for that rolled r you do so well.
OMG!! You’re back now!! All the way back. I missed this.
Yes!! I have missed the word of the week. It is almost a test for me now – to see if my 4 yrs in Scotland gave me any inkling as to what you are on about!!!
Glad you’re up and running more !
“like a mooth foo uh broken biscuits…”
WotW is one of my favorite features on the net. Thanks, Siobhan, for another serving.
One question: When you say someone is well-endowed in the mouth department do you mean that the mouth is physically large? Over here, if someone is described as having quite a mouth, it would mean sassy and vocal.
I like “badger’s bum” for the alliteration. I suppose you could also go with aardvark’s arse, but that sounds like you’re trying too hard.
Oh how I love the word of the week!
That last sentence slayed me!
I have something on my blog you want to see. Promise.
Really missed the ‘WOTW’.
