Malaga lorgnette!
Port pince nez!

Eh - what is this all about?


Nils Ferlin: Goggles

Där tar ni fel, min fru,
att det var för snobberi
jag köpte mina goggles
- nej, kloka lilla ni.

Men nätterna de vita
och dagarna de gula
de lekte mina ögon
så ruggiga och fula.

Då handlade jag dessa
hornbågade ni ser.
- En artighet, min fru,
emot sommaren och er!

... aah. Right. I see. So this is QI, isn't it? Well, I guess I use to drink too little alcohol. I have no idea what Malaga actually is for a kind of wine, just quickly needed something to complete my post. And the only thing I could think of was a Swedish drinking song ending with the words "Malaga, ja!". So there you are ...

(I am more than willing to join in Stephen's embarassment since I have never ever heard the term "beer goggles", either ... Until now. Who is that guy who also had the "pince-nez" idea?)

Phil Jupitus - stand up comedian,team leader on 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' and general funny bloke.

The one who talks about the Sherry Monocle is Jimmy Carr, same as above, except instead of being a team leader on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, he hosts '8 out of 10 Cats'

"You're all rotters..."

Rotters, I love that word and intend to insert it into one conversation every day, along with 'pish'.

God. That clip never fails to make me laugh. "Moooooore Sherrrrrrry!"

I shall have to use "rotters" more often. I have picked up some BritSpeak from my constant watching of my British TV. Unfortunately for those around me the word that has penetrated my vocabulary most deeply is "bollocks". It just, well, fits into my conversational style very well...I guess that says something about most of my conversations! X-D

It's from The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive. Stephen got a stuck with a needle and then asked for a "wollipop". :AWWWWWWWW:

Funny thing about those pics of embarassment is that I can pinpoint almost all of the discussions that sparked them. The fourth one, for instance . . . I can hear his accompanying "Oh, Lord!"

Is it strange that I want to stick Stephen with a needle?
