Now, usually I'd just go on with my day with nary more than a thought that the Limeys are weird but I had a flash of recognition. In one of the discworld books, Pratchett referenced conkers and I had never gotten it before. Vimes is walking along a street of the working poor while investigating a crime and thinking back to the games that the street kids would play. I don't recall the others off the top of my head but one of them was dead rat conkers. I gave it no thought at the time, just writing it off as some children's game I didn't get. Now I'm happily entertained by the idea of people trying to bash rats open with other rats. I guess it only counts if you manage to get one of them to split open and ooze.
It's the little joys that matter.
