From the Geordie Bible. - Complete the next 2 lines.

1) “What, nee mere` strar , bugger that”; - (Hint – Moses and the lads).

2 What' is Nimmos, where did it come from ?? (Google can't help).

3) Whist lads had your gobs and I'll tell y' all and awful story, Aye but which wurm??.

I must admit “Piglet” suits thou not as well as the Bard knows thee.

Newcastle – perhaps, Geordie – Niver (not iver) it's in the syntax baby,

No idea about the first, but Nimmos was a brewery and the rhyme is about the Lambton Worm.

One is a tad nonplussed.
I believe the Castle Eden Brewery produced Nimmos beer,one could be wrong as one was Church of Newcastle Breweries.
