    And you mean "flap" as in "argument"?
    Yes - Top Gear, cars, un-PC banter (Jeremy Clarkson got into trouble last week talking about the public-sector strikes last week on another show: http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...GMy2Qg&cad=rja)...

    And I don't mean 'flap' as in 'argument' - which is an extended usage because an argument often causes a disturbance. I mean 'flap' as in 'kerfuffle'/'tizz'/ 'unmanly [in the view of Jermy Clarkson] state of indecision'. (For Clarkson, the ultimate insult is 'girlie'.)

    To be honest, this idea crossed my mind when I was reading the 7th entry article on that website I mentioned.
