Certainly to you it is. You have never been to formulate a sentence, much less spell and use proper grammar.

Don't you have some porn you need to attend to, Mr. Pornerator?
The spelling of the word is "arse" ....... that is the correct "English" spelling.

Not the bastardised version you incorrectly use ..... you burrohole

Noun 2. & Verb 1. are good descriptors for you :wink:

An Ass is a donkey ....... you'd fit that description too. :lol:

Michael Flanders and Donald Swann wrote their Song of Patriotic Prejudice which contaied these immortal lines

Chorus... The English, the English, the English are best,
So up with the English and down with the rest!

And all the world over each nation's the same
They've simply no notion of playing the game
They argue with umpires, they cheer when they've won
And they practice beforehand, which spoils all the fun!

It's not that they're wicked, or naturally bad,
It's knowing they're foreign that makes them so mad
For the English are all that a Nation should be
And the flower of the English are ............. and me!
The English, the English , The English are best
I wouldn't give tuppence for all of the rest
Gardening requires lots of water.....most of it in the form of perspiration.

England has a heritage to be very proud of, in my eyes.
Forget royalty & look at what the society accomplished. First modern police force in the world-sure, not perfect, but an attempt to enforce justice.
The scientific discoveries, the push to explore the world, the fact that the society even now tries to look after & protect the weakest and poorest of its citizens.
Again, sure, not perfect and the system has gone too far in some cases, but the concept..it's one of the signs of a highly civilised society.

If we want to be critical of other countries, maybe we should put some of the African & middle Eastern countries under the microscope. Let's check them out honestly, without blaming every single fault in them on the English or Americans. Because that's what we tend to do here. Can't those other countries do anything themselves?

As for Australia, hold your horses, not all the convicts were rejects from England. Perish the thought! Scots & Irish came over too. Good dose of Irish, actually. And I can personally vouch for the fact plenty of convicts came from the Channel Islands too. :D

No we are not. I was off by a vowel on a book I read 5 years ago. My mistake and apologies to you.

Of course you could always refer to someone, in the nicest possible way of course , as "Callipygian" - but it doesn't have the same resonance!

My apologies Andy. So, when I say the Americans kicked the Brits asses out of America, I should be saying arses instead?

Makes sense now as one of the reasons why the Brits kiss our asses.........oops, I meant arses.

BWAHAHAHA

What an a*sehole.

Ah, to be really effective and give the most satisfaction, the 'insulted' must know at once that you have landed a verbal blow! :lol:
