A bit confusing for me.

Until the Nationality and Citizenship Act of 1948 came into force in January 1949, Australians were all British subjects.

I was born later in 1949, so my parents were born here as British subjects and were British subjects when they conceived me, but I wasn't born British.

However, my involuntary and impressive response to the luscious Kathy in suspender belts and stockings* demonstrates that I am still British to the core.;) And, at my age, I'm proud of my rigidly British response. :D

Are you trying to indicate that Kathy is NSFW (not where I work :D), or that in your present state you aren't. :D


*I mean Kathy was wearing the suspender belt and stockings, not me. I'm not a British MP or Anglican bishop or Max Mosley or anything peculiarly British like that. :D

There is no room to stage anything in my oversized Kevlar underpants as they are already straining to contain my thousand volt love pump.

Everything passes into history.


I was standing on the pavement outside the Red Lion on the Duke of York Street, without about forty chaps, the other day. It was one of those rare crisp, autumn days with the sun shining brightly. As I looked up, there was the Union Jack, flying proudly in the bright sunshine from the top of a neighbouring building "The sun never sets on the Empire!' I remarked, it raised a few chuckles but everyone raised their glasses - and then called for another round. :D

A few days ago I was lunching with some blokes where we amused ourselves with comparisons of how Germany to some extent and Japan to almost every extent achieved their WWII economic aims under Marshall Plan notions, and how this was beautifully satirised in The Mouse That Roared.

We also bemoaned the fact that Britain and its Empire / Commonwealth bore the brunt of the extended war in two world wars (without ignoring France's primacy as the most affected militarily and civilly in the first war and the early stages of the second war), and that Britain buggered itself in two steps in two wars and ended up paying off Lend Lease for decades when the rest of the world which didn't want to be under Axis control should have been bloody grateful to Britain for making a stand at its own considerable expense which has never been repaid by the nations it saved from the Axis heel.

Things may pass into forgetfulness, but those who study history might think that Britain got the shabby end of the stick in two world wars and bore too much of the cost of both.

That is very true here.

We're getting past the seventies bearded (not all male ;) ) radical teacher bullshit which by the eighties produced texts and study guides which referred to solidiers as 'harm workers', FFS!

Those smug bearded drones would have been teaching in Japanese, if they'd survived or been allowed to be conceived, but for the 'harm workers' who saved this and other countries from the Axis.

A lot of school children here now seem to have a sense of wonderment about what their forebears did, perhaps because it is so foreign to anything in their comfortable experience.

Recent events; Olympics, Afghanistan and even the publicity which modern day explorers are receiving is beginning to have a more positive effect here.

Shackleton continues to inspire:

"MEN WANTED FOR HAZARDOUS JOURNEY. SMALL WAGES,
BITTER COLD, LONG MONTHS OF COMPLETE DARKNESS,
CONSTANT DANGER, SAFE RETURN DOUBTFUL. HONOR AND
RECOGNITION IN CASE OF SUCCESS."

The classified ad above is allegedly from Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922), the invincible Antarctic explorer whose fame
came from his expeditions -- none of them successful -- to reach the South Pole.

Wonderful! :)

The only reason I can't use it is that all the women around here are 240V AC and my love pump is 1,000V DC, so I keep frying their wiring. Although women are born with wiring that's already fried, so it's hard to be sure it's my fault.

If you know a woman who can handle 1,000V DC, let me know.

If you give me any names I may have to put them in a queue as my love pump is temporarily out of action as the last time it was used was in salt water and it blew a seal.

The seal, which had been lonely for a long time, was very grateful and promised not to tell anyone.

Women in the UK are among the ugliest in the world, according to a global survey of men.

They finish second in the list of the planet's worst-looking women compiled by FHM magazine.

The only country with worst rated women was Afghanistan.

However, British women did come fifth in a list of the most attractive women, which was topped by the US.

The looks league was compiled from 59,000 online votes from users of the magazine's website around the world.

According to the poll, the top 10 countries with the ugliest women were: 1, Afghanistan; 2, UK; 3, Germany; 4, US; 5, China; 6, Russia; 7, Albania; 8, Turkey; 9, France; and 10, India.

It's not unheard of for the odd American to raise a few laughs when they make some comment to do with their fanny. :)

And as for Americans comments, as long as it is they, and not their "fannies" making the comment, all is well. :)

The word "Fanny" has an entirely different meaning a few hundred miles north in Scotland, where is is a slang word for vagina. so be careful of using it if you are ever there...:mrgreen:

Fanny is also a term of description for an idiot,

'shut up you fanny'

And if anyone offers you a ***, don't worry, it's something you put in your mouth and suck; 'a cigarette'

Whereas an American *** would love an English / Australian bum, which is an *** in American rather than a hobo.

Just to prevent translation misunderstandings Now, for another odd translational problem for my American brothers and sisters. although in England, it is a nickname for Frances/Francis, The word "Fanny" has an entirely different meaning a few hundred miles north in Scotland, where is is a slang word for vagina. so be careful of using it if you are ever there...:mrgreen:

To call a chap 'Fanny' in Britain, one must be either very hard or very stupid.

I used to watch Danger UXB, about twenty years, or so, ago (perhaps longer). Remember the girl, Judy Geeson, I think her name was (?), are you sure it wasn't she that was being called Fanny?

Assuming one uses the word fanny. However, using a word (shorter by one letter) referring to the same organ is often employed to express dismay at the subject's stupidity. As in "You stupid ....!"

A great show and the delectable, vulnerable and highly desirable Judy made it so much better.

I could make some clever comments about Judy and fannies, but it's early in the night and I am able (just) to exercise an unusual degree of adult restraint.

Which leads us to Judies. Used to be an Australian term for women. As in "How'd you go with that Judy last night?". I have a feeling it might have been borrowed from the Motherland?

Which doesn't lead us back to fags, but I'm going there anyway.

To butt a *** (put out a cigarette) has a rather different British / Aussie meaning to the American possibility. ;)

Americans probably don't cadge (beg) a butt, either, unless they're impoverished fags. :D

Not heard "Judy", but "Doris" is in common use.

The name was used by one Captain, to another. The dithering hard case Capt. was the C.O. of the whole company,(named Francis) the other was a defusing officer who drank too much, and had a scandalous reputation. his name may have been Ivor. HE took over after the fuss budget Capt. was removed/re-assigned. Ivor addressed the other Capt. as "Fanny", (not Franny, thats an American nick name, as is Fran, and Francie. We dont want to call somebody a Butt) I do remember Judy Geeson, quite nice looking lady, had a sister who also acted.

Don't know if it reflects a change in usage, but what was WWII usage as a disparaging term in the UXB series could have changed later.

For example, the 'thumb up' sign that meant 'all right' in WWII was often used with a slight upward thrust to mean 'Up yours' or 'F... you' from late 50s early 60s here.

I remember 'Judy' being used by scouser friends of mine, in the context you describe, but haven't heard it used since the sixties. Perhaps, it was one of those generation or era things?

I remember, as a very young sprog, reading Archie and Jughead etc. In one issue there was some female friends of Archie's doing some sort of gym exercises or other and the coach told them not to stick their fannies out so much. :shock: I thought it rather risque and wondered how they were able to get away with that in America. :D

Be prepared:



War Office issue to the Royal Navy in both world wars, pure wool sweaters like these have made it onto the silver screen in films like Above Us the Waves. Every bit as suitable for today's sailors and those who like to keep the waves beneath them, these super-quality sweaters by George Steers combine warmth, comfort and rugged durability.

The neck and shoulder seams are interlinked for strength, while the pure botany wool is specially treated to prevent shrinkage (useful when you're clinging to a life raft in the mid-Atlantic :) ) and retain natural resilience.

Available in either navy or ecru (off-white).

Sizes, relating to chest size, give a loose (but not baggy) fit.
