You should be fined for false advertising, spodge. Spunk. With a title like that, I expected at the very least a pic of some handsome hunks. :lol: :shock:

Your definition of SPUNK is different from British one.

It like Australian Girl worked in our Office one day she asked in loud voice that carried
"Has anyone seen the DUREX ?"
Much spluttering of tea.

Other Australian lady had to take her to one side and explain that we call it Cellotape here and DUREX is name of "Rubber Johnie "contraceptive.

Oh how we laughed and how pink Australian Girl went and for weeks after.

That is weird? As an Aussie girl, I have never heard of cellotape being referred to as 'durex'. But I have heard of Durex being referred to as 'rubbers'. I wonder what part of Oz this lassy was from? Tasmania??

Nothing like the smell of burning rubber early in the morning.

35 years ago!!? That explains it. I wasn't even an itch back then. Gawd, 10 years later I was an itch!!

:lol: pot noodle!! before I read that post, i didn't even know what a pot noodle was? Don't think that is what they call them here. 2 minute noodles, perhaps.

And spunk, in some parts of Oz, that could be referred to as semen, blow, cum, papa's special sauce. I think you get the idea.

Spunk has other meanings, some as uncomfortable as a durex in polite conversation.

Dame Edna Everage used the double meaning in a sprightly song, SPUNK, performed over here, as I recall in 'The Last Night of the Poms'.

In Martin Amis's hilarious novel 'Money', the young American film star calls himself Spunk Johnson and is mortified to discover that in England it normally means something different. So this business applies to the USA as well.

Those of a certain age will remember Barry Humphries' wonderful Barry Mackenzie comic strip in Private Eye. A fair dinkum Aussie adrift in the septic society of '60s London (and living in Kangaroo Valley), Barry enriched the English language. Splendid new words for vomit - chunder, a technicolor yawn, and my own favourite 'playing the whale'.

On one occasion, Barry chunders over an adjacent lady with tiny lapdog. Seeing the hapless creature among the debris, Barry is aghast:

'Cripes, I don't remember eating that!'

SPUNK

I've just remembered. The word 'feature' had a double Aussie/English meaning as well. When Barry Mackenzie is invited to 'feature on television' he is shocked, though he puts nothing past the London perves he constantly encounters.

Martin Amis says in one novel that the bloke in the next cubicle 'sounded as if he was parting with a bag of melons.'
