Offensive english

You leave an English pub and hear the phrase from the tipsy natives: Whale him away with both fits! If you knew profanity, then you would have time to get ready for a fight.

Communication in Shakespeare's language does not always imply tactful gentlemanly behavior and correct speech. Once in a pub, normative English loses its relevance even on the doorstep. Therefore, it is imperative to know the basic phrases and expressions of non-normative English.

This is not what your English teacher will teach you, but we will.
