It's a Language Thing



Why flower shops in England just lead to confusion

    1. The only thing which separates us from the United Kingdom is a common language.

  2. It's not like Brits ever go to flower shops anyway. If we're that desperate we can just go to the petrol station.

    1. Oh, that's a gas!
      Actually, neither do we. We just call 1-800-FLOWERS

  4. Very funny. You could also do a piece on the different names for car parts. The British have interesting names for things. I didn't even know my car had a bonnet.

    1. And my trunk is a boot. I think that's in relation to the bonnet which is for something on the top of a car (the hood) and the bottom of a car (a...boot?).
      Anyway, it works for me.
      Calling an elevator a 'lift' makes perfect sense, though.
      And...'wanker'? Probably better in mixed company than 'tugger.'
      Both the words and the deed.

  6. LOl I love this. I wonder if, in England, they call those flowers "moms"?

    1. What's more, it makes me giggle when I drive by greenhouses and see ads for "Extra Large Mums."
      Those babes really should get to the gym.

    1. It is slang. For something you don't (or shouldn't) do at church.
      Or pretty much anywhere else.

    1. Great! I intentionally put it like that with the flags just barely obscuring the letters.

    1. It is. I have a couple. I'm not very good at art. For instance, I have a devil of a time drawing boobs on an Etch-A-Sketch.
