Re: I'm too cool for "Member" to be my tag.

This is fast ecclipsing the 'Fun things you've found' thread in General Chat for sheer hilarity.

Shouldn't keep it going any longer than it has to. I'll say Sunday is the deadline.

You coordinate those Hyves Mischa!

Because I felt sorry for you?

You've got to expect people to plug up your horn if you're tootin' it yourself. It was a filler anyway! I'm not nearly that conceited... Nearly.

Re: I'm too cool for "Member" to be my tag.

I demand a recount. Plus, there was no option for a vote for Panda. Not even a write-in option... What kind of democracy is this?

One in which the Election Coordinator is ignored and a vote is passed anyways.  tongue

I could open an official vote and include write-ins!  big_smile

I bring communities together... Watch, as I fight their terrifying and wondrous animal with nought but a chair and my wits! So the write-in by one vote is panda, and all of a sudden my reference to English slang is destroyed. -le sigh-

Re: I'm too cool for "Member" to be my tag.

But in its stead you won a reference to a new slang, to Phoenix slang (which will conquer the universe).

Wait a sec - cheeky monkey is British slang??? What does it mean?!

http://img.metblogs.com/austin/files/2008/03/eddie_izzard.jpg

I heard it once from Eddie Izzard and apparently missed out on something extra funny that I just thought was slightly amusing... "The Light Chuckles" as it were, when I was supposed to be suffering from "Constipated Laughing with Severe Choking".

Cheeky monkey is the first one addressed.

OMG, some of these are Laugh-Out-Loud-Funny! "Get on my tits" made me burst out laughing in the computing lab I'm in.   >.<

No idea why "Pub" is on there, maybe it's for the people down South, we have Pubs up here in NY! Some around here: JP's Pub (there are 2 completely different JP's Pubs near me too on that note), Limerick's, and Flanagan's to name a few, though admittedly everything out here that I can think of that gets referred to as a "Pub" is Irish-themed.

Tart was a bit of a surprise, must have heard that one a few dozen times and was clueless that it was derogatory.

Surprised not to see "Pip pip cheerio!" towards the end (along Ta and Cheers).

Anyways, your language over there is quite awesomely hilarious!  big_smile

Ah, but did you know what they meant? :-P

We Brits are, I think, often cavalier with language. Lends itself to canting.

Re: I'm too cool for "Member" to be my tag.

We could, of course, resort to cockney rhyming slang (or rhyme & slang, as the website calls it), just to confuse everyone, even ourselves.

I hadn't heard of 'Sparky' though. To me Sparky is  the nickname of footballer (soccer player) Mark Hughes, but there we go.

I should also add that there are lots lots more than these ones, which I'm sure will become clear over time, some of which change from region to region, like "cob".

Best of luck though!
