@fresco,
In Southampton we have a different problem, our homegrown talent going to the bigger clubs, Theo Walcott and Alex Chamberlain to Arsenal and Gareth Bates to Spurs.

@izzythepush,
I blame media money turning locals into mercenaries, but I'm probably an anachronism.

@Setanta,
Wrong "oh"....try the vocative "O" ..and it's much more anally suggestive !
Then again, you are not exactly poetically aware are you ? Evil or Very Mad

@fresco,
The obscure usages of an insignificant little island which dangles from the ass of Europe like a dinglebery is of little interest to me. I'll bet you're big fun at parties, huh?

@Setanta,
Set, why not just admit that you slipped up? It's not like this is a one time thing that is going to be the ruin of your image.

Hehehehe...(sic)
What a fibber ! I bet you could bore us to death with your "knowledge" of British History. And I notice your default mode to lavatorial language is quintessentially "British schoolboy" ....a colonial inheritance no doubt!

An island whose insignificance is so great that you're talking its language.

If dingleberry is in use by "British schoolboys," i'm not surprised. I've noticed many examples of linguistic borrowings from the Americans--such as the spelling of magic, tragic, etc. What little sense there is in the language you speak and write you've borrowed from the American language.

@Setanta,
I've always wondered how that got morphed into dingleberry in the first place, must be a politically correct Dangleberry.

@wayne,
Actually, that's not something which would interest me--however, if it serves, as so many simple things do, to jerk the respective chains of the Limeys, i'm all for it.

@Setanta,
You're not going to 'jerk' many 'chains' by sounding like Foofie.

@Setanta,
Yes, but don't you think it's a bit ironic, you decrying the insignificance of the UK, from a country where our queen is your head of state?

Not my head of state, i ain't no Canajun . . . and i would never take out citizenship precisely because, as the native son of a republic, i would never willingly be the subject of a monarch.

Here, now, let's drag this discussion even further atray.

The secret lies in understanding what an eelpot is (a trap with a funnel shaped entry that makes it easy to get in but difficult to get out - check the internet for a picture).

I thought exactly the same way as I happened to read this thread just now.
