Summer is over, Autumn knocking on the door, Winter not far away and Herbert is (almost) back for some new hangman rounds
The Game: Guess this Lewes chuckle. Two words.
Rules: 1 letter per post. I will check from time to time and fill (or not) in the suggested letters. You have 6 tries for this one.
IMPORTANT: If you try to guess a whole word and it is wrong I deduct two tries per incorrect word but credit three for each word guessed right. So, if you guess the first word right you get a three-try-credit but two tries are deducted if you don't guess the second word giving you a one-try net credit. Capiche?
Tries Left: 6, Deducted Credits: 0, Credits Earned: 0

Capiche? It's an Italian word. It's spelt capisce.

Great post Old Ted, but to avoid embarrassment try Google before you criticise spelling. There seems to be several alternatives to 'capiche'.

Congratulations to be fair, easy warm-up really so don't get too smug Jonnyboy Nice to see you Goldbar. Apologies for the slow game -just came home this morning after a 800 mile non-stop drive. Feel a bit spaced. :| But all is back to normal from now

1940s slang, from capisce. capisci? "do you understand?". Some say it's a French variation of the Italian word. My personal opinion is that its origin is in the US and widely used in (Hollywood) movies often in a 'Mafia' related context. The slang spelling is intentional. Otherwise I agree with you with my three years of Italian. B-)
