Hey Meneer Roper...surely the flame put on a candle ain't the wick, the wick is the stringy bit you light with a flame from another source to get the flame to the candle NotSO??
Cockney Rhyming slang Hampton Wick was my uncle 'Dick' as in Dick Whittingham.
I think there is confusion coz when I lived near London the blokes said cor he's well built ain't 'e got a big Hampton or poor fellah next door 'E's only got a Little Hampton which has a pleasurable walk down the seashore...so did littlehampton get its name from lots of little plonkers that lived there.
Really if you are saying 'you get on my wick' are we talking of a page from the Kama Sutra or subtly discussing the geography of part of England?
Difficult language English English as opposed to South African, Australian or American English innit? Now INNIT...is the the mi-spelt word for a type of Aboriginal or Nomadic Hunter Gatherer...Gosh...I love playing around with words...I must be a sad bugger.
A candle first said this to a flame
sounds like a phrase that would translate to "I am getting mad"
How long does a candle last?
About a wick.
(The pun only works if you're from Yorkshire lol.)
This phrase actually comes from the cockney rhyming slang "Hampton Wick" which translates as "Prick".
I'll leave it to your imagination to work out.
A flame put on a candle is a wick . Meaning that you get on my nerves . OUCH !
