As many feckin' fathoms of feckin' wood as Feckin' Farley could feck,
If Feckin' Farley could feck wood.

But anybody who fecks wood has some serious issues.

This is getting way the feck out of feckin' control...

No feckin' way man, there are degrees and kinds of compliments, as there are of many things. I could say of one of my neighbours, for instance, that she's very attractive or that she has fabulous feckin' *******. Both are compliments (and true statements), but you'd have to agree that the first one is a lot nicer.

What the pheck has that got to do with anything? One is still a nice compliment, the other's a rather rude compliment, but a compliment nonetheless. You lose.

The winning what?

English major, huh? :P You spelled analysis and hand incorrectly, used "to" instead of "too" twice... :P Better keep working on it.

And you can kiss some part of me too, but not my hand, or han... You win nothing. Your original objection appeared to be based on the premise that "nice compliment" is redundant, I've merely been pointing out that it's not. You lose. Still.

like I fecking said, you fool, the phecking fingers keep running away from me, and no it is not that I feel that the Nice compliment is redundant...I object to the fact that you feel that it is in opposition to a heroic compliment or the others that you stated that a "nice compliment" is in opposition of..You lose, now admit it ye fecking fartknocker, and kiss me heiney while yer at it

Keep working with that dictionary, kiddo. There are subtleties in English syntax and meaning that you're missing. "In opposition to" and "as opposed to" do not mean the same thing in the context in which I used the latter phrase. Feckin' ignorant literalist moron...

They added "Spendy" for a new way of say expensive...I doubt that they tells anyone to "pheck" off, they're too busy writing down all the bizarre jargo they can find!

I admit nothing, you feckless fecking feckerhead. The dictionary is not the be-all and end-all, it's always out of date and incomplete, rarely provides explanations of idiomatic phrases that do not mean what the literal meaning of the words in them would suggest (which is what "as opposed to" is, and I should point out that you used it first, and correctly), and represents just one person's or one committee's understanding of what things meant at a certain point in the evolution of the language.

I am, however, touched by your affectionate reference to me as "me dear," which accounts for what comes next:

Quote:

...nobody will fecking beat you for it...

But I might like that...

As I recall, it seemed to be popular opinion around these parts that Jo Canadian was Manda's 'boo' (Well that's what they're called nowadays, apparently). Having followed this thread, though, I'm considering calling for a recount.

I know; shame on me - that's how rumours get started. I think it's about time you cleared this one up for us, Manda.
