    I expect I would just bumble through it.
    Either that or wing it.

    On a separate matter, some Victorian sanitary ware manufacturers produced men's urinals with a painting of a bee below the glazed surface as an 'aiming spot'.

    The modern day urinals at Schipol Airport have this too.


    Most educated Victorian men would have understood the pun but this may be lost on today's generations.

    The Latin for bee is 'Apis'.

    Actually, it was the Brian Hanrahan who did that.

    Reminds me of the Tim Vine joke:

    "This bloke tried to sell me an abacus. I said 'Does it work?', and he said 'I wouldn't count on it'"
