"Who'd she get it from?"
"The football team, last night."
'I've got a sore throat' and you can express you desperation/sadness/anger in an amusing way without conveying your feelings to the enemy. Genius isn't it?!? Share the phrase with all your close friends, just remember you with caution. Also problems and confusion can arise when a true sore throat occurs. Anyway, this phrase will come in useful when you are with people involved in ponchomania or wicca wicca blazin' squad members.
You say, 'I've got a bit of a sore throat at the moment'
Your friends will understand and muchelemayo will follow, the enemy is left very confused!!
