British Dite

Main piece:

“Don’t be silly, wrap his willy!”


Informant is a first year student at the University of Southern California who grew up in Henley on Thames, England. 


I asked the informant if she had any sayings, and this was her response.


The informant uses this dite as a joke whenever one of her friends is going to be alone with a boy, even if they do not have a sexual relationship. There are definitely many forms of this saying in other cultures, and it is interesting to see how the different shorthands for words lead to different rhymes, and therefore different phrases as a whole.
