I had a neighbor who was a first-class hippie. She raised angora rabbits and was married to a guy who had had his vasectomy from his first marriage reversed. She used to spin the rabbit's wool on a spinning wheel. One day, I asked her if she popped her weasel yet, because the term comes from spinning (it's how skeins are loaded from the wheel), and she replied, "No, the doctor said Tim wouldn't be ready for a couple more weeks".True story.
I rubber glove that mockney slang jazz! I may be popping some weasels soon if I don't get a bloomin' corn cob!
Oh Lex, if only I could have been there to see that.
