I beg that you will inform me of the hour at which the locomotive is expected to reach its terminus.

Would you be pleased to receive a container of a hot herbal infusion as the train's arrival time approaches?

I wondered if it might not be seen as a gross impertinence if I were to take the liberty of enquiring whether, in addition to the beverage you currently possess (and seem to be enjoying), you wouldn't say no to the suggestion of being offered further sustenance in the form of something more solid and at the same time equally delicious, perhaps from the patisserie?

If it would not be too much trouble I would require another one of your fine small baked products.

It appears advisable to return blossoms developed on the stem of Brussels foliage to one of the Low Countries.

Is that perhaps a chapeau of the cowboy style apocryphally claimed to be able to hold eighty pints or is that rising curve a sign of your manly enthusiasm at setting eyes on my good self.

Friendly fire isn't.

I would be terribly, terribly nice if you could refrain from utter ruination. Forcing yourself, through some strange quirk of fate and courage, to succeed instead?

The agitated lacteal secretions of the mammary glands of the female graminiverous bovine quadruped in my possession summon the entirety of the male children to the vacant land adjacent to my abode.  Furthermore, it is superior to that which belongs to you.

Otherwise correctly-minded ladies and gentlemen of society are eschewing, as it were, not meats nor animal produce of any manner; rather it is said around the tables and walkways of "the town proper" that they are devouring solely the flora, vegetations, &c., that such a beast might itself consume, as though their minds had been interchanged with that of the other, in the way of les expériences grotesques. This must surely leave their palate so pitifully un-nourished and dissatisfied in general terms that one wonders whether they are perhaps among the devotees of von Sacher-Masoch.

I wonder if someone amongst you might have information on the likeliest habitat wherein the blooms popularly known as Blarney Roses might flourish.

A word that contains in order the following meanings Spiffing, Islamic leader, jazz tune, myself, tilt, frozen water,sign meaning times in maths, The ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, noun singular, outdoor swimming pool,the acronym for confidential information, the mathematical sign for nothing and finally the group that we ourselves belong to.   Not withstanding the fact that it's very utterance is often appalling to the ear, the tongue and the intellect.

Practically perfect in every way.

Having been subjected to a barrage of tests most rigorous both in daily use and conditions in the laboratory, our findings can enlighten us that the item in question is, in fact, without any detectable flaw.
