Rough not rogue. You are just making allegations here, you haven't got three legs to stand on.

Re: Has the Isle of Man gone rogue

If they are not rogue they are weird folk.

They try women as witches like poor Jinny

Jinny the Witch went over the house
To get the stick to lather the mouse
Hop tu naa, my mother's gone away
And she won't be back until the morning

They set fire to the gorse to ward off bad faeries

This superstition lot, have their single women go round to their neighbours house listening at the door with their mouth full of water and, holding a pinch of salt in each hand and when they hear the first male name they know who they will marry.....

The only famous export or exile was the Bee gees to Australia ....


They are a bunch of moot munchers

They are a bunch of moot munchers
A fair description, but we can be lyrical, this verse will put a tear in any Manxman's eye.
From Betsy Lee,--TE Brown
In the vernacular

Now the beauty of the thing when childher plays is
The terrible wonderful length the days is.
Up you jumps, and out in the sun,
And you fancy the day will never be done ;
And you're chasin' the bumbees huminin' so cross
In the hot sweet air among the goss,
Or gath'rin' blue-bells, or lookin' for eggs,
Or peltin' the ducks with their yalla legs,
Or a climbin' and nearly breakin' your skulls,
Or a shoutin' for divilment after the gulls,
Or a thinkin' of nothin', but down at the tide
Singin' out for the happy you feel inside.
That's the way with the kids, you know,
And the years do come and the years do go,
And when you look back it's all like a puff,
Happy and over and short enough.


Dabbing me glims here .
