Lang May Yer Lum Reek

Clive James

Clive James wrote a typically amusing piece for The Guardian the other day in which one of the world's most famous Australians claimed to be embarrassed at the fact he is still alive, a full year after predicting his own death.

All I can say is 'lang may yer lum reek', Clive which is an old Scots was of saying 'live long and prosper' or, more literally, 'long may your chimney keep blowing smoke'
