Comic #1499

1 Terry: {walking across upper Nepal with the yeti} You speak English?
1 Yeti: Oh, I should say so.
2 Terry: Upper class, toffee-nosed, British English?
3 Yeti: A remnant of the Raj, I'm afraid. Old habits are jolly hard to shake, you know.
3 Terry: Hmmm.
4 Yeti: Which is all very well, but you try laying a croquet lawn on Himalayan topography. {indicating the rugged mountain terrain around them}

That'd be the British Raj.

And croquet, which requires a large flat area of carefully prepared lawn. Difficult to find on the side of a mountain.

2016-12-14 Rerun commentary: Oddly enough, I know of not one, but two separate croquet clubs with playing lawns, within a long walking distance from where I live.

A quick search reveals - somewhat to my astonishment - a total of 21 croquet clubs in Sydney, with a total of 42 full sized croquet lawns between them. That's quite a few more than I would have guessed.
