The Lord's Prayer

Nesika papa klaksta mitlite kopa saghalie,
Our Father who dwells on high,
Kloshe kopa nesika tumtum mika nem.
Good for our hearts Your Name.
Kloshe mika tyee kopa konaway tillikum.
Good You Chief of all people;
Kloshe mika tumtum kopa illahee kahkwa kopa saghalie;
Good Your heart to such country as Yours up above;
Potlatch konaway sun nesika muckamuck,
Give us all days our food.
Pe kopet-kumtux konaway nesika mesachie.
And stop remembering all our sins.
Kahkwa nesika mamook kopa klaksta spose mamook mesachie kopa nesika;
As our deeds by which we may have mad evil against you;
Mahah siah kopa nesika konaway mesachie.
Throw far from us all evil.
Kloshe kahkwa
Amen (good like; i.e. "be good")

Bic Runga's song:
Google the 7th line, but without the leading "A", i.e. "ruby heart that hides from view", you'll find the song easily... Interestingly, if you put in the leading "A" you'll find nothing...:!:

Okay, here's a one for four... I'll give 4 different quotes (with replies), but they all relate to one common theme... If you can find the source of one of them you can probably find them all... To make it a bit tricky I'm blanking some of the words...
Quote 1 wrote:A1: So how's your _____ and my _____?

B1: The _____'s fine, the _____ are _____.

Quote 2 wrote:A2: Why are you so _____ _____?

B2: Because everytime I _____ your _____, _____ gives me a _____.

Quote 3 wrote:A3: So how's _____ _____'s _____ taste like?

B3: I don't know, ask your _____.

A3: If you _____ _____ my _____ again, I'll _____ _____ your _____ _____.

Quote 4 wrote:A4: Sorry _____, I should have kept my _____ _____.

B4: Not you son, your _____ should have.

I don't need people to fill in the blanks there, just find out who spoke those things, and identify the common theme there (which should be easy)...

Can I backtrack? My interlude took longer than intended.

The correct answer to my quote was first communicated to me by the ubiquitous udosuk:D

It is yellow in colour, as if it wore a daffodil
tunic, and it smells like musk, a penetrating smell.

It has the perfume of a loved woman and the same
hardness of heart, but it has the colour of the
impassioned and scrawny lover.


Its pallor is borrowed from my pallor; its smell
is my sweetheart's breath.

When it stood fragrant on the bough and the leaves
had woven for it a covering of brocade,

I gently put up my hand to pluck it and to set it
like a censer in the middle of my room.

It had a cloak of ash-coloured down hovering over
its smooth golden body,

and when it lay naked in my hand, with nothing more than
its daffodil-coloured shift,

it made me think of her I cannot mention, and I feared
the ardour of my breath would shrivel it in my fingers.

Isn't that Aphrodite's apple?

I take it that it's cricket:?:

Could the missing word in B4 be "mother":?::D

That’s Not Cricket

To play the game of cricket
Throw the ball, don't kick it
Other men
Will hit it then
And tell you where to stick it

Yep, cricket (in particular "cricket sledging") is the common theme... And MCC is right about the blank being "mother"... I guess it's not hard to figure out the last 2 words by A4 then?:)

RW might not know, but some ladies play cricket too... I don't suppose there is a Finnish women's cricket team, when I'm not even sure if a men's team exists?:)

Now for the people to give the correct names who spat out those infamous "quotes"... I suppose I could fill in a few more blanks but some of them really should "stay hidden from public views"...:)

1. Rod Marsh to Ian Botham
2. Glenn McGrath to Eddo Brandes
3. Glenn McGrath to Ramnaresh Sarwan
4. Raman Subba Row to Fred Trueman

I know nothing about cricket, except that the games are very long and there is tea-breaks. I don't think there's any serious cricket teams in Finland. I believe that once a year the law students play the medical students of the university, never heard anybody else mention that they've played cricket.

I must admit that I googled this one as well.:( Even though you had tried to disguise it well, I found the answer on my third search... I wonder if there's anything left in the world that cannot be googled...

Great job RW, for a bloke who doesn't follow cricket...

Here are the quotes in full (with some words still masked due to necessity:) ):
Quote 1 wrote:(Welcoming Botham to the pitch)
Rod Marsh: So how's your wife and my kids?

Ian Botham: The wife's fine, the kids are retarded.

Quote 2 wrote:(After Brandes, a large bowler and bottom-order batsman, missed several balls but didn't get out)
Glenn McGrath: Why are you so ####ing fat?

Eddo Brandes: Because everytime I #### your wife, she gives me a biscuit.

Quote 3 wrote:(After being belted for 21 runs in 2 overs)
Glenn McGrath: So how's Brian Lara's #### taste like?
(there were some rumours of a relationship between Lara and Sarwan)

Ramnaresh Sarwan: I don't know, ask your wife.

Glenn McGrath: If you ever mention my wife again, I'll ####ing rip your throat out.
(McGrath's wife was fighting against cancer at the time)

Quote 4 wrote:(After earlier let an edged ball bowled by Trueman pass between his legs at slip)
Raman Subba Row: Sorry Fred, I should have kept my legs together.

Fred Trueman: Not you son, your mother should have.

Note the wording might not be exact, but the essential meanings are there...

Try this one, which has puzzled all of us so far...
