There's something a little bit rakish about "oh I say." Even though it's forever associated with the dulcet tones of Dan Maskell commenting on Wimbledon (or "calling the games at the British Open" as I suppose I should say).

"Oh, I say!" is what one might utter in polite company when what one is actually thinking is more along the lines of "'kin 'ell."

You might think that, I wouldn't.

I was called a Limey today by a 'Mercan. Damn cheek, I haven't had a Mojito in weeks
