Doesn't make me "happy", per se, but am definitely amused at googling someone because I thought she was someone else and coming across the Panama Papers Laughs out loud

(She doesn't live here, it's not our taxes, etc)

From one of our suppliers T&Cs

1.1 In these Conditions the following expressions have the following meaning (unless the context requires otherwise):

Blah blah blah

1.2 In these Conditions masculine includes the feminine and the neuter, and the singular includes the plural and vice versa (unless the context requires otherwise).


I suspect only a raging feminist would be pissy about that. I was surprised and pleased to see the gender issue so neatly encapsulated.

Laughs out loud I had to look that up, and found this gem on Telergraph - a list of Borisisms:

Translated | Boris Johnson
Crapshoot
A game of craps, an uncertain or risky venture.

In use: "I forgot that to rely on a train, in Blair's Britain, is to engage in a crapshoot with the devil."

Foam-flecked
Mad or hysterical.

In use: “I can hardly condemn UKIP as a bunch of boss-eyed, foam-flecked Euro hysterics, when I have been sometimes not far short of boss-eyed, foam-flecked hysteria myself.”

Gloomadon-poppers
Merchants of gloom.

In use: "If we hold our nerve and we are not timid and we are not cowed by the gloomadon-poppers on the Remain campaign... then I believe that this country will continue to grow and prosper and thrive as never before".

Greased piglet
A slippery or elusive individual.

In use: "It is just flipping unbelievable. He is a mixture of Harry Houdini and a greased piglet... Nailing Blair is like trying to pin jelly to a wall."

Ker-splonked
Crashed, splattered.

In use: "Nothing excites compassion, in friend and foe alike, as much as the sight of you ker-splonked on the Tarmac with your propeller buried six feet under."

Mugwump
A person who remains aloof or independent, especially from party politics. But as it rhymes with "chump", it can be used to mean "idiot".

In use: “They say to themselves: he [Jeremy Corbyn] may be a mutton-headed old mugwump, but he is probably harmless."

Whinge-o-rama
Intense whingeing.

In use: "I think it's time we snapped out of the doom and gloom about the result of this [US presidential] election and the collective whinge-o-rama that seems to be going on in some places."

Wiff waff
An early form of ping-pong.

In use: In Beijing for the Olympic Games, Johnson told his Chinese hosts that ping pong was “invented on the dining tables of England in the 19th century. It was. And it was called wiff waff”.



But while we qare looking at his use of language in personal attacks maybe we should be paying attention to what he said here:

Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, has suggested Britain could bypass the House of Commons and join the United States in taking military action against the Syrian regime if it is asked.

Mr Johnson added it would be “very difficult to say no” if Donald Trump's administration asks the UK for help in taking action against Bashar al-Assad's regime in response to another chemical attack.

Asked on the BBC’s Radio 4 Today programme whether he could envisage taking military action in the region, he replied: “I think it will be very difficult if the United States has a proposal to have some sort of action in response to a chemical weapons attack, and if they come to us and ask for our support, whether it's with submarine-based cruise missiles in the (Mediterranean), or whatever it happens to be, as was the case back in 2013, it would be in my view, and I know this is also the view of the Prime Minister, it would be very difficult for us to say no.”

Pressed further on whether the Foreign Secretary would seek approval in the Commons for such a strike, Mr Johnson added: “I think that needs to be tested. As I said I think it would be very difficult for us to say no. How exactly we were able to implement that would be for the Government, the Prime Minister.

I've been hearing all sorts of scary s**t this week because insomnia so am listening to Al Jazeera for longer at night and earlier in the morning too. Until this month, I have never gone to bed wondering if I am going to wake up to a declaration of nuclear war.

America are now helping South Korea build a missile defence system. They are playing dangerous games right now because their "war games/practice" also including Japan is really pissing Kimmy off, and both Kimmy and Trump are f*****g itching for a fight. Neither of them are going to back down for fear of being seen as weak and this is escalating things by the hour.


Should probably move this discussion to the other thread Wink
