I'm sure I've told this tale before, but it's funny, so i'll tell it again!
One afternoon, we were at Notre Dame Mining College, Crab Street, St.Helens, having Mr.Dooley for Mining Science.
We were all waiting in the corridor outside the classroom door when he arrived (as nowt as nast, as always) and someone had decided to knock a matchstick into the door lock for a laugh (I think it was Johnny Baldwin, from Pemberton).
When Dooley tried to get the key into the lock and discovered the knocked in matchstick, he threw an almighty wobbler!
Everybody was sniggering, which made him go bright purple. He shouted, "Next F***** mon 'as laughs at me 'll think F***** slopstone's geet up an' smacked thee int' F***** gob"! Then he just smashed his way through the door, shoulder first, without unlocking it!
You can imagine, everyone went quiet and there wasn't a murmer throughout the lesson.
Those of you who know him won't be at all surprised!
