What’s that great ruddy fing ‘anging over the Roger Moore den?Β  What’s it for?”

“Well, it’s a portal innit?”


“It’s a portal.”

“Yeah, but what’s that fing ‘anging in front of it?”

“S’a magic portal, an openin’ into another world.”

“Yer avin’ a giraffe.”

“I’m tellin’ yer!”

“Where’s it go den?”

“A place full of tutti-frutti and dolphins.”


“Yeah, and they’re telepathic an’ that.”

“Go on den.”


“Go on through the magic portal den.”

“Well, have to wait a bit; can’t do it right now.”

“Why not?”

“Need a full moon innit.”

“Need magic mushrooms more like.”

    Great colloquialism and rhyming slang!

  2. Dear Imaginator,

    The colloquial dialogue made this a fun read. I don’t believe the ruddy fing’s a portal. πŸ˜‰



  3. Your dialogue is absolutely hilarious and clever, Imaginator. I know character’s just like that. I didn’t want the story to stop.

  4. The best of this bunch, this one is! Really loved the dialogue, as others have commented on. There’s a certain cleverness to the character’s language. Great work this week.

  5. I’ll throw out the big word too: yes, great colloquialism and the banter is quick and dynamic. Fun!

  6. What are they on? And where can I get some? Enjoyable piece of dialogue.

    Cor blimey! Magic Mushrooms? Or your character’s been at the Calvin Klein. (Certainly not the Acker Bilk)! He’s off his Bacon Rind! Or he’s Dad’s Army! Your story is very Easter Bunny! Roll over Eliza … πŸ™‚

  10. Yes, I have no doubt that magic mushrooms would work.
