    What's the meaning of "Doesn't do having anything"

    Can any one of the kind teachers elaborate the meaning of such sentences as, "He doesn't do having play/dance/run/think" etc.? or 'do having something', for that matter?

    These sentences are not meaningful English.

    Sir it means where have you come across these sentences?

    @Sir Dawood usmani.

    I can't precisely recall, but I heard this kind of a sentence from a TV host.

    Sir wish I could write the original sentence here. The sentence used by that TV host is kind of objectionable.

    Perhaps you could replace some of the letters in the objectionable words by asterisks, thus: s**t.

    Jeremy Clarkson, the host of a TV show called "Top gear", uttered this kind of sentence.

    Re: What's the meaning of "Doesn't do having anything"

    Without the context and the whole sentence or series of sentences, it's impossible for us to help you. What you have posted so far does not make any sense but it's possible that with the rest of the context, it might suddenly become clear.

    Don't worry - we're used to Jeremy Clarkson being pretty objectionable. Just do as someone else suggested and replace any actual swearing with asterisks where possible (although I have never actually heard Jeremy Clarkson swear on TV).
