frantic semanticsAncient burglar up before the magistrate for sentencing.
Hizzonner: "I'm setting a trial date of June 14th."
AB: "Have a 'eart, guv ... that's when the missus is conceivin' a baby ... "
Counsel: "M'lud, I believe my client means that his good wife is giving birth ...
Hizzonner: "Quite so, Mr Cowperthwaite. Well, whichever it is, he ought to be there. June 30 suit you better, Mr Pond?"
AB: "Much obliged, guv - you're a right gent."
