Peculiar expressions
« on: July 06, 2013, 04:13:51 PM »
This afternoon I was listening to the afternoon play on Radio 4 and one of the cast had the following line,

" what he did has opened a can of worms, although he does have his fingers in lots of pies overseas "

How on Earth can  Foreigner understand that garbage?

Any more expressions out there?   ;D

This could relate to a lady of relaxed morals etc.

She's no better than she should be.  ?{}?

Ha ha... obviously because of the Yorkshire connotations in the phrase Dave?  :laugh:

There are many, many odd phrases.
My Mum often said to me,  'stop crying or I'll give you something to cry for''
I never understood that, because I was ALREADY CRYING, could she not see that???  !!!

Eat your heart out.

Certainly! However, I'm having trouble with my left nipple at the moment....it's rather rubbery.

You're not making much progress then mate, although you might find the ribs more to your taste?  :laugh:

Snug as a bug in a rug.

Perhaps it's time to call pest control?

Behave or ill ' Tan your Hide'  ouch! leathery skin. We lived with a river at the bottom of the garden that my dad had fenced off. I use to climb and could hear Mum shout Dont come crying to me when you have fallen in ( well seeing as it was a 30ft drop near a rocky wier i actually dont think she would have seen me again) never mind cry.  :'(

Recently used was "b****r off",  now I am sure that the person did not mean for those to whom it was referred, to engage in sodomy and unnatural sexual activity with other humans or animals!

Noun
vulgar. A contemptible or pitied person, typically a man.
Verb
vulgar. Penetrate the a**s of (someone) during sexual intercourse; sodomize.
 
Just as bad as using "b*****d" I suppose!
 ;)
Touche!  :D
