RARA-AVIS: Rankin & slang question

From: Mark Sullivan ( DJ-Anonyme@webtv.net)
Date: 21 Aug 2002

I'd just started Black & Blue when I ran across the phrase
"like-your-loafers." Is that how that phrase goes in the UK, or at least Scotland? On this side of the pond, it's "light in the loafers."

Also, what's Irn-Bru? Perhaps because of the "Bru," I had always assumed it was a beer, but here it is implied that it is non-alcoholic. Is it a non-alcoholic beer, some sort of soft drink, what?

Thanks, Mark
