What did she say?

"Rich, hunting-field expletive." This is how P. G. Wodehouse describes some of the expressions that fell (or were hurled) from the lips of his Aunt Dahlia Travers, whose voice evidently was quite strong and who used to be addicted to fox hunting. One wonders, just out of morbid curiosity, what those expressions might have been, but PGW does not reveal them, so we are left to use our imagination.
