BBC, you so silly!


Oh, BBC – I can think of dozens of words for ladybits. I wouldn’t think this is a gaping hole in our vocabulary. ehhhhHHHHEHEHEHEHE.

Wait – SNIPPA?!?

BBC is a menace, though, for real. It’s pretty obvious our friends in the Fourth Estate are coordinating attacks on Trump, desperately trying to get something to stick. And some of it will stick over here, sadly. BBC dominates the news, and commercial outlets are just as bad, anyway. If all you ever get is bad information, how can you make good decisions?

Actual conversation overheard this morning, “No, Mum, it’s not just like the rise of Hitler. Yes, I know you remember the rise of Hitler, but he didn’t build walls.”

Oh, check out this article from US Snooze. Opening paragraph:

As President Donald Trump took office Friday, police in the nation’s capital walloped protesters, reporters and legal observers with batons and doused them with skin-burning pepper spray as projectiles sporadically flew in the other direction.

Walloped. Doused. Skin-burning pepper spray. See, the things the bad guys do are written in clear, muscular language. By contrast, “projectiles sporadically flew” — gently, occasionally and all by themselves, I guess. Probably paper airplanes.

Or, alternatively, protesters threw rocks at the police and the police fired back with pepper spray.

It went on in this vein, ‘…sprayed a stoop-backed older woman and a man on crutches before repeatedly striking a journalist…’ And ‘“You are all going to jail!” an officer declared after giving a penned-in group a fresh coat of pepper spray…’

Fresh coat of pepper spray. This isn’t journalism, it’s a High School Advanced Placement creative writing course.

I like “woo-woo” for the little girls’ replacement word for vagina. I mean, how many six year-olds can remember “vagina.” Girls can also remember “down there” which is a particularly southern kind of replacement word.
I wonder what the replacement word is in the aboriginal Kalahari Bushman “click” language.

All the other words I’ve heard for vulva/vagina have taken on vulgar or at least impolite attributes. Why should this silly neologism “snippa” be any different?

Rhetorical Q: Would the reaction have been less ferociously vociferous had Trump said, “grab ’em by the snippa!”?

They’re trying very hard to restart the narrative over here, too.

Let’s hope they fail.

That wouldn’t have been a passing grade in my AP writing class. F-

Ha! I remember ‘down there’ – but then, I am Southern. My mother trained as a nurse and preferred clinical terms, which sometimes gave us problems at nursery school age. I do remember using “big bottom” and “little bottom” — that gets the job done without too much grossout.

The BBC is the most destructive force at work in the UK today.

And that, believe me, is saying something.

First alternative that I thought of was “divine fulcrum” and if you remember the source book good on you.

Mrs Vegetable is Japanese but, well, she’s Deplorable© frankly. She gets enraged when she listens to the Japanese News (NHK is Japan’s BBC) as she says they simply parrot the Liberal Media attacks with zero examination or analysis. They simply cannot comprehend the situation which led to Trump’s success.

As for finding a new word for Vagina, well, English speakers have been working on that very problem since -at least- the year 1250

And here’s a handy list!


Still, what’s the point? ‘The word is not the thing; the map is not the territory’ and renaming Socialist as a Liberal, and then renaming a Liberal as a Progressive changes nothing. However, the Left seems to think it does.

I watch a lot of Brit documentaries. But beyond the occasional period piece, I can not stand the PC/lefty slant of British television. I tried watching Silent Witness but the slobbering over muslims made me what to puke.

Per twitter, the Japanese do like Barron Trump. The suit, skinny tie, and his good looks were being emulated in drawings.

Snippa seems like an adulteration of snapper, which was common when I grew up.

Women parading around in “vagina” costumes that are crude representations of the pudenda reflexively cause me to reject the message and the messengers (and question their intelligence). My mother was a nurse, too, and I am the youngest of three daughters. I understood the facts of life from an early age. But I am willing to call the pudenda the “frilly bits,” if we can keep on calling the vagina what it is.

Paginta (soft G of course) or GooGoo (hard G), hands down. Brits can’t pronounce the T-word right. Should be ahhhhh, not short A. Jerry on New Tricks ruined word totally.

Thanks for the info on NHK. I love Sumo these days, especially the battles with the “big Mongorians”. Plus Document72 and Somewhere Street. But WTH with the anti-US message in the news? Now I understand.

I can’t get enough of Brit Shows – Foyles War, Downton, Sherlock, Vera, Doc Martin, etc. But the libtard bias really is hard to stomach at times. And Cumberbatch? Meryl Streep clone or what is wrong with that guy?

Mitchell, FWIW, I’ve always thought “camel toe” should be sung to the tune of Paul Simon’s Kodachrome.

Hoo-whee doggie! What a week and it’s only Thursday!

One rises in the morning wondering how many Progressive/media heads will Trump cause to explode today?

Sooo much winning is a little disorienting, me being irredeemably deplorable ‘n all.

What? Has “front bottom” fallen into disuse?

And I suppose that “naughty bits” as per The Goodies is a bit too generic.

Heh – big surprise – They’ll do pretty much anything at this stage.

Making news out of a few mumbly tweets, years ago, by a nobody guy who became the newest White House press monkey – over his angry tweets about “Dipping Dots”.
And how these 5 or so tweets, over the course of at least as many years constitute “a campaign” against this company.

It’s all good though, they keep falling into traps set by Trump.
Most recent being telling us that the number of illegal votes for President was NOT 5 million like Trump claimed, it was only about a million! So there!
When but mere months ago they insisted was no fraudulent voting going on at all.
