: My Granddad (1919-1989)used to say "Money makes you funny sitting on the dunny eating bread and honey".
: A term I now use; where did it come from?

Well, "dunny" meaning "lavatory" is an Australian/NZ term, so it sounds as though it should come from Down Under; was your grandfather from there? Do you use it to mean anything, or is it just a nonsense rhyme, one of the things families traditionally chant? (VSD)
