    Graham, we're not ALL native English. How many of us do you think actually run into English slang in daily life?

    This is what I call Anglican arrogance ;)

    I don't distinguish between 'race', only nationalities.

    Well then why didn't you? :p

    How about I put in a Dutch contribution? Here's a good one my friends and I use (and came up with):

    P.L.O.R.K

    Stands for Prachtig Lichaam Ontzettende Rot Kop

    Which translates as Gorgeous Body Incredible Ugly Face

    No need to explain exactly when we would use such a term me thinks :D

    I'd rather u didn't, cos then the thread would turn into a "share your best cuss-words and insults", but then again it's not really my choice :)

    Nobody cares for my Dutch slang? :sad:

    BTW, might I say that this timezone kinda sucks. I mean, all the Europeans are gone at this hour (except me but I'm pulling an all-nighter on studying and am currently on a break) and there's by far not enough amusing people from across the Atlantic here.

    What time is it at your place Graham?
