It happened while we were in the High Court waiting for the interpreter to call out the winding-up cases.
We saw the interpreter stood up and … he said,
“Company Swine-ding up No …”
Me and another learned friend burst out laughing in court!
With our mouths covered of course… what a scene it would be if we had laughed out loud!
These days, with the threatening flu plague, people are really sensitive of the word “swine”… so anything sounds “swiney”…
So Companies Winding Up can become
Company Swine Ding Up!
