What's the difference between ...?

A 'Snottir' and 'Doolee'

N.B. The difference between 'Snottirz' and 'Dooleez' might cause offence to some readers. So if you are one of those people who don't like facing humanistic facts, you'd better skip this one.

You've probably heard the age old saying, 'What came first, the chicken or the egg?' A similar saying has puzzled Dundonians for many years. 'Whut cum furst, a snottir or a doolee?'. I think that it is about time this was clarified. First, let us take the 'Snottir'. A 'Snottir', to put it bluntly, is nasal mucus. It is the slimy, sticky, sort of mucus that requires the use of a handkerchief to assist in its extraction. 'Snottirz' cannot be picked, they must be blown out of the nose with extreme force. Whereas a 'Doolee', which is also nasal mucus, must be picked. A 'Doolee' is a versatile type of mucus which can be picked, rolled, squashed and flicked with comparative ease. As for the question 'What came first?', all I can say is, who cares, as long as there's not one stuck to my cheek.
