So the Shedists have "shut" up shop and claimed victory - we Hutites are not going to stand for that! :wink:

Have you got your own religion then Abieuan like the Czech Hussites [the Czechoslovak Hussite Church]? Are there presbyterian hutites in Scotland?

Am i right in thinking there is a subspecies of the English Oak called the Cornish Oak?



The other way around, surely? We were here first!

Whilst oblivious to our genocide
That England imposes
With smiles and Red Roses
Where the innocents, so gullibly, reside.

Yes Morgarrow, I do have my own religion, and I do not know any other Hutites who would be willing to take up the cause.

Abednego,

From a long way back, the Cornish for a shed or hut is "krow", and a hovel is a "krowji" (sometimes seen as Crowgey) from "krow" + "chi" or literally a "hut-house".

Ian,

From Wikipedia: "The word "hottentot" meant "stutterer" in the colonists' northern dialect of Dutch."
