My teacher's legs.

When I was at school we had a teacher (who had a bunion, a face like an pickled onion and a nose like a squashed tomato) whose legs were like "match sticks".
My wife, who is from a different part of the country - I from the West Country and she from the North West of England - had a teacher with similar facial characteristics but she insists that the teacher in question had legs like "pork chops".
As a conventional married couple, there are many aspects of life where we disagree but perhaps members of this forum would make a small contribution to our harmony by adjudicating on the question as to whether I or my beloved have the correct version, indeed are there any other possible results?

I have heard of the expression of having legs like ‘chicken thighs’ if that is at all helpful.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Now Miss Brice, our French teacher had 35 inch inside leg, pencil right grey skirts and slender thin biros. French? Don't think I remember anything.

I was about 8.

In 1950's Yorkshire, my teacher was a funny one, and had

a face like a pickled onion
a nose like a bruised tomato
and legs like broom shanks

I'm sure many other children's songs (passed on as oral tradition) had similar variations.

My R.E. Teacher had the sobriquet "Astro Boy" if anyone recalls that cartoon. Her legs were the reason for this name.

Used to fly with this very old Fg Off Nav - he was an ex Master Nav - and he was asked whether he preferred ladies with thick or thin legs, His response was that he preferred something in-between !

In the North West in the 50s, a boy at our school was named Roger Anion. And we used to sing:
His name is Roger Anion,
Has a face like a pickled onion,
A face like a squashed tomato
And legs like 2 sticks.

Does "Legs on upside down" strike a descriptive chord with anybody in an RAF of years gone by ?
( and yes Beags "With a face like an earthworm" also came from that era )
My favourite was " The hippocrockadonk" ..... (but she was rich of "independent means"!!!) So no problems there for a certain careerist officer .
And then from the Army came the definition of WRACs
" Things you screw out of site in wardrobes"

Then of course for the RN , WRNS were by and large a side issue,

" All those men on one ship!" etc.etc.

Yes I am joking! These are ridiculous stereotype of course, ( aren't they? )

Anette, a substitute teacher whom I shagged at the graduation party in grammar school, had legs which seemed to stretch to eternity. Thought I was the lucky one, turned out she had a thing for 16-year old boys and had been through most of my mates. Good girl!

This was in the age when being shagged by a woman 10 years older than you didn't warrant running home to momma and crying. It was the ultimate badge of honour for a young boy, and a secret kept between good friends.

Quite so! Especially the 'badge of honour' bit.

When I was a teenager it was considered a high honour to be the subject of sexual experience from 'an older Woman,' as you actually learned something from the experience!

Didn't happen to me though until I was in my mid 20's.

And yes, she had legs that just never seemed to stop.......

Of course the best bit is where they both come together.

Heron's Legs?
According to Alphonse Daudet, in one of his letters from his moulin to his beloved, she had legs like a heron, which my French companion assured me was a good thing!

Would fold accordingly.
