And utterly confounding to every Kernowman, who have enough trouble with
the Mistarista as it stands, who understand this as having just been told
to 'rush right on in to every Saxon arse'. I think we shall have to
graciously beg out of that unique opportunity! After having a good long
giggle with respect to certain cultural and idiomatic differences; I think
the equivalent expression is "poni-lo al ngulan le cascun Zawzen." (Like
as not with an appropriate gesticulation.) :-)

vulgarity in any tongue, say it like you _mean_ it!
