Tossing the what????

Thomas is, first and foremost a linguist. Moreover he has lived in the UK for 11 years so his English is usually faultless. I can listen for days without hearing even a preposition out of place. So the opportunities to ridicule him are few and far between, and therefore must be grasped head-on when they arise... 

Over lunch today...

Thomas: "Did you hear they are doing Highland Games down at Rouken Glen on Saturday? I think we should take the kids. They'd really enjoy it. There are Icelandic strongmen and everything. It'd be fun to watch them tossing the caper!"

Hahahahahaha! Immediately I saw the photo above in my mind's eye! (And let's face it, I can only get away with publicly humiliating him because my Danish is a piss-poor second to his English!)
