FLOTSAM AND JETSAM

Avinesh Gopal
Friday, November 10, 2017

THIS came from a regular contributor.

My friend gave his tovata a tip for the Melbourne Cup, he tells Beachcomber. The chap had $50 to spend.

My friend who is well versed with betting, said: "Tovats cakava ga na Quinella". (Just do a Quinella)

The next day they met and compared winnings. My friend won $80.

His tovata said he didn't bet. When my mate asked why, his tovata said, "Tovats, au oca na vaqara na ose yacana o Quinella". (I couldn't find the horse named Quinella.)

All my mate said was, "Ïsa!"
