Threatening nipper crabs with scissors - snip versus nip.

Smokie.

Aye sidle aff ye crabbit crabs ye, them fish are no for you.

Ahm no finished smeekin mha smokies and yer no gettin near them till they’re smeeked eneuch.

Nyah nyah. My snippers are bigger than your nippers!

Translation:

smokie: smoked haddock.

Indeed! Sidle off you crabby crabs, those fish are not for you.

I am not finished engulfing the smokies in black smelly fumes and you are not getting near them until they are smelly smoked enough.

Nyah nyah. My snippers are bigger than your nippers.
