Does "good the bog" mean "clean the toilet"? The word "good" appears to be used as a verb here and I failed to find its definition as a verb in dictionaries. It might be an informal usage in the UK. I am not sure.

It's the bloody spellcheck on this device.

I meant to write give the bog a good flush.

Give referring to the action of flushing, like give someone a slap, give them a drubbing, give the sink a good clean.

Be assured that your concerns are echoed by the wanton use of the vernacular by one who's use of the split infinitive deviates from linguistic prescription.

So to boldly go where he has gone before, I suggest you change the word 'good' to give, and yes, in this sense 'bog' refers not to decaying vegetation of peat, but indeed to a toilet.

Although not to a biodegradable type, only those with a mechanical means to evacuate it's contents.

@oristarA,
Bog meaning toilet is brit slang not american. Tto us, bog means swamp. Took me a bit to figure out it wasn't a restating of trump's drain the swamp (by which he meant fill it with his own bullschit)

@MontereyJack,
Oristar is from China, if he is from Hong Kong he's probably more familiar with Standard English than American English.

You're all assuming he didn't know what bog meant, he did, the problem he had was with the word good which was a typo, so it was wrong anyway.

@izzythepush,
Yeah the spell check on fire tablets is fierce and stupid. It corrected ""spell" to "s loop ell", needs a little work fire people. And it did it on it's own without asking me about it.
