Climate Change, It’s Not Just for A***oles Anymore

The Bee preaches more righteous truthiness: many of us would prefer sweet oblivion to having to listen to that screeching little Swedish bint who somehow managed to escape her tiger cage in the Village of the Damned.

  1. I liked the joke of an Australian and Japanese businessman who were captured by terrorists. They were granted one last request before being shot. The Japanese businessman wanted to give one last talk about Japanese business methods. The Australian asked to be shot first.

    Is this a slight toward me, Richard, since I am in Japan?

    Good joke.

    It’s always all about you, after all 😉

  4. Bint was a new one for me, so I looked it up:

    Bint is British slang for a woman or girl, but it is always disparaging and offensive and signals the user as lower class and unrefined. It’s also now rather dated. The word is Arabic for a daughter, specifically one who has yet to bear a child.

    Ace is an archaic Arab raised in Britain. He can be seen on display at the British Museum on every other Friday in the Walker Gallery.

    Yes, when it comes to terms of disparagement and abuse, I like to range far and wide. Indeed, I pride myself in being quite ecumenical when it comes to choosing just the right insult. In this regard, the limeys are a goldmine of put downs, gotchas and shots across the bow. Strumpet, trollop and silly cow are just a few other Britishisms that would work when describing the green teen witch of the north.

    I often lean towards the “sk” words – skank, skeet, skeeve, etc.

    Of course, in honor of my Dear Friend Dime, I would also include perhaps the most derogatory term – Huskie Fan.

    All excellent words, though some are not applicable in this particular case in my opinion. I once had a detailed discussion with a Brit on a flight home from London on this subject. I kicked off the topic with the uses of the word tart, a favorite of mine because of its other meaning.

    Was there any Cockney rhyming slang?

    Not that I know about but my imaginary wife once referred to one of her brothers’ potential girlfriends as a pop tart.

  11. She is a modern reprise of the ‘noble savage’ myth. Nothing new under the unusually-quiescent sun. Ho Hum. How dare all who preceded her provide her with food, warmth, clothing, free education (if only she availed herself) and an affluent, comfortable (decadent) society in which to live to harshly disparage. How had they the temerity to bestow upon her something less than a sustainable, green, natural, organic, gluten-free, plant-based, zero-emission igloo village? She is an avatar of chutzpah. Instead of hyperventilating, would it be too much to hope for for more breath holding instead in her relentless vocal temper tantrum?
