I remember that and thinking - Hmmm ... curious. Now we know.

Cuprinol. Yes. *giggling*

Yeah! He's pretty good. Like this version of Hawaii 5-0. Lot's of fun.

Well, we all prefer Jason but that doesn't prevent us from looking over the field. Makes us appreciate him more.

'Our Jason ...

... eh oop, lad ...there be trooble oop mill.'

I don't imagine many people will get this. Never mind. It made me giggle and my mind works in mysterious ways.

Our Jason ...

... eh oop, lad ...there be trooble oop mill.'

Care to explain it?
Umm ... I fear the humour will be lost (or rather annihilated) in the long-winded explanation. Well, I know it will, but ... it would be rude not to, wouldn't it? So, here goes ...

In the north of England, it is traditionally accepted, if complete crap, that people prefix the names of friends and family with 'our' - it's a term of endearment. For example: 'Eh, lad, our Mildred makes a fine cup of tea' - or 'Our Rosie has filled out a bit since Aunty Marge's wedding, hasn't she?' - or 'Ooh, is that a ferret down your trousers, our Tony?' - all typical phrases that you would hear if you were to walk the streets of Sheffield. (Well ... maybe not ...)

Anyway, the phrase ''trooble oop mill' (because it has to be said with that sort of accent, but translated means - There is trouble with a certain aspect of the running of the mill, a prominent and enduring feature of the north where the Industrial Revolution began) is a really stock phrase associated with 'th'indoostrial nahth' (The Industrial North) I doubt anyone ever said it, but it has slipped into the stuff of legend (eg see Monty Python).

When I read 'our Jason' I just read it with a northern accent and that's what I put. I'm afraid it's a very English thing and I'm being facetious. Sorry. Ignore me, really.

See? Not funny anymore. (If it ever was.)

Please read this post with a heavy, heavy dose of irony or preferably not at all if you're not English or if you're from the north.

thanx very much for that translation...:hug

I think it's fabulous that we can all gather here, being fans of Jason, from all over the world,
with such diverse backgrounds...gives us something in common, and opens up avenues of
friendship

I listen to Kermode/Mayo and I have to admit, most of what they say is lost on this American :shock:

You're welcome. :yip

And thanks for being so tolerant of my warped sense of humour.

I agree - Jason - actor, producer, voice talent extraordinaire, family man, wearer of wigs, fit bloke ultra extraordinaire and - UNITER OF THE WORLD! :woot


(OK - I really am going to shut up now.)

If you read Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, the character of Nanny Ogg frequently refers to her eldest son, the blacksmith as 'Our Jason' - throws me every time.

I thought it was a quote from North and South. Now that you mention Monty Python, I'm sure I heard some'ut like that, too.


We can have more than one guilty pleasure. There are many Richard Armitrage and Alan Rickman fans on board, eh? Doesn't make us like Jason any less. :D

How do you do multiple quotes? :???:

Anyway, yes, I remember it from a Monty Python sketch, but we say it a lot in our house too for some random reason lost in the mists of time ...

And yeah - we need to give poor Jason a rest occasionally by sampling the delights of other, lesser males ... ;-)
