English term or phrase:they sell runner beans but they ain't been round the track three times
C'est un jeu de mot sur "runner" dans l'expression "runner beans".
La phrase complète est la suivante : "At Sainsbury's, they sell runner beans, but they ain't been round the track three times, have they?"
Ceci est extrait d'une série humoristique anglaise du nom de "Only Fools and Horses".
