Never heard of it Jill.
Never heard that saying before Jill.
well I used to say it (in primary! ) hadn't thought of it since Jill, happy first of the month to you!
A pinch and a kick for being so quick (and no returns of any kind)
Plus White rabbits, white rabbits, white rabbits
Ernie, Ernie, Ernie
I never 'got' the white rabbit thing, what was that supposed to mean?
Scottish thing for luck I take it (as it was my Mum who did it every month)
how weird that we used to say that too then. maybe thats why it didn't make any sense
Yes Obi, you are right !! It's good luck thing......... (and my Mum was English)
Yes got DH when he came in from work at 6.30am this morning
We did the Pinch Punch thing to our kids this morning, before they did it to us lol
I wonder if there is an age line for these sayings? perhaps its the younger Dissers who have not had the pleasure of these saying??
Origin of pinch punch and white rabbits.
thanks Claire, you're a mine of useless info
Never heard of it lol
Thats made me roll up thanks Obi
Never heard of that but when we were kids everytime we saw a mini we said mini nip and also a VW was Herbie punch followed by the appropriate action! My wee brother got many beatings due to this!
My DH thinks everyone in the town I came from have really lost the plot especially when I come up with such gems as this from childhood. Best thing is we moved back there 3 years ago. SO he's lost the plot now too!
yep i still say it, although i often forget the white rabbits bit, ernie ernie ernie is new to me though Obi
(showing my age here)
Before the days of the national lottery, there was only one state sponsored gamble and that was the Premium Bonds.
Ernie was (is) the Premium bonds computer....
