Translated:

mell: blend, to mess up, to hit with something solid and heavy, a heavy type of hammer.

Now, Bone Breaker Bill. You are quite clear that this is nothing personal. There will be no bad feelings.

I am just going to mess up your face enough to make it worthy of the substantial donations that Cell Blocks’ A, B, C, D, F and H made once they knew it was you that was to be seen to. And please remember, you very much volunteered.

And I should remind you, as you might not have been aware, you do not get any of the money – Red Nose does. Understand.

(Red Nose brass knuckledusters are no longer available).
