    Default Here's some interesting information

    Some of the words we use today had very different meanings originally. Have a look at this:

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    A bully aweful list, ems! I once had a dapper brothel inmate who seemed to have come from the matrix with a charisma for making neologisms that would often make me ejaculate. Once he made a list of myriad new terms. I pretended to be buxom but was actually so consumed with heartburn that I took a diaper and some balderdash and tried to artificially defecate his list. Now it was his turn to ejaculate!
