The Meaning of......Words

Post by Ice man on 13/7/2013, 17:31

As you know, I am residing in Canada. Here in Canada, the meaning of the word "Shag" is slightly different than the meaning of the same word in GB. Here it means; going to a dance, bridal showers, bachelor parties, and baby showers.

First time a faced this was when I woman asked me if I wanted to go to the shag with her. I said "What????" Then I realized, this is damn good country, no need to spend time and money on dinners, movies, and other crap. Here they are going directly to the important stuff.

I once read a book about  UK biker gang, they were being patched over by a much bigger US gang

part of this involved going to the parent chapter in the US, one lad from Bristol made the mistake of asking about FAGS thankfully the guy behind the bar knew what he meant and defused the situation before anyone got murdered

I can imagine the conversation:

"Looking for a packet of fags"

"Are you talking about us, limey bastard....?"

and then the fight started.

I think it went something like any Fags in the bar or are fags allowed in here something like that

he also fucked up with the US gang's number 1, made a big play of ignoring the Brits so matey walked up to him and blatantly asked where he could sell stolen travellers cheques did not go down well

To ask for a rubber (eraser) in the US can be confusing for them. In the US that is a condom
