Strange American Things.

it's a double-whammy: cunt is primarily used here as a highly rude and offensive name for a woman's genitalia, so it's got that (offensive to women) plus the homophobic connotation when a guy uses it to describe another guy.

when used to describe either men or women, it also carries connotations similar to asshole or prick, someone who's being a real spiteful jerk.

when referring to the female body part, pussy is sexy/playful whereas cunt is seen as cold and rude.

and that concludes our online home schooling lesson for the day.

He’s wheezing out sodium. I can hear siblings proverbially moan his pan isn’t wide enough and the meat will boil.

To be fair, no one has perverted food like our friends across the pond.

Furio was a great character. I love the episode where it's Columbus Day, and all the older male characters are being all patriotic (meaning pro-Italian), while Meadow (who's really woke by this point in the series, sort of a grown-on version of Lisa Simpson) is trying, without much success, to educate her dad about what a cunt Columbus actually was - when Furio sneers "Fuck Columbus!". The other guys are all like "WTF?", and Furio just shrugs and says "What? He was a Northerner!"

I've been watching Midsomar Murders on telly in the afternoons and every time Bergerac walks more than 10m he's wheezing and sweating as though he's just competed a marathon. Looked him up though and he's still alive so I guess it's not necessarily a sign of imminent death.

My family went all over the north-east travelling to bluegrass festivals and they were always a blast. You would see people you didn’t see any place else, , but the same faces went from festival to festival. When I was 13, I won the Walnut Valley fiddle championship. They had four or five different stages, bluegrass bands, merchant people selling stuff, a fairground and food trucks. You could buy a turkey leg and we’d pull our sleeves over the turkey legs so it looked like we were eating our hands. We thought that was funny. Later, in my mid teens, I started playing with the first lineup of Union Station. We weren’t well known, so while there might have been thousands of people at the festival, they’d be at a different stage to the one we were playing. It was so muddy that our banjo player – who was always very well dressed – said: “I’m not going to ruin my clothes.” So he went on stage in American flag shorts. I would always sleep on the floor of the van and, by the time I woke up, my face would be stuck to the rubber.

Have a mild addiction to some of these twangy old numbers. You can't grow up listening to your Mum's entire folk collection without searching for more

This will be my big contribution to discourse and community insight today, I have nothing else. A husk of a human being. Absolutely nothing to give.

Overwanked. Corpsey does this a lot too. Usually takes him about a week of abstinence to build his energy levels up again but you're a lot younger. You'll be fine by Friday I reckon.

so Boris might say "do you want to be remembered as a patriot, or remembered as a fanny?"
