There is an 'Only Joking' topic? I have been here years and never knew this!

Sorry op

Tata wink

We use tata in Welsh, toosad

Yeah, it means that in Australia, too.

Yes it does mean bye bye. (Am from Nottingham. I miss it in the Midlands.)

Same in Lancashire. It means goodbye. Have never used the expression myself and never will.

Why have you put it in the 'Only Joking' topic? Not complaining, just wondering.

TTFN - Tata for now

Surely everyone knows this hmm

As a Geordie we say 'Tara' Not like the name, pronounced like tata.

Reference to Tata Steel I assume.

Bit insensitive

Oh yes, trivial response to a serious issue - which is why I put it in 'Only Joking'.

It definitely seems to in the UK Steel industry. Let's hope not of course, seriously.

I don't understand any of this. confused

And it's a zombie thread.

I also don't understand: this thread or why 1DAD2KIDS is reviving these threads... confused
