    As Bambi's skunk buddy may have said: "He can call me 'Flower' if he wants to."

    i'm against this thread, in my country we speak American darn it. we beat you guys and gained our independence so we could talk right, and not have to drink all your darn tea....

    well, fill me in on the "good stuff". i'd love to know how to tell someone off in another language. i already know the UK version of flipping people "the bird".

    Ann's word "blimy"

    Also you should do "thick" and "smart".

    You also talked about "scousers" and "geordies" this morning....
