On another thread, there was some great discussion going on about the different uses and interpretations of language. But there were some suggestions to move that off to a new shiny thread that's free from the angst that plagued the original thread. So... here it is!

By the way, I vote for the word "accordion".

Let the record show that I did not start this thread.

Bazoinga. As in "Didja see the Bazoingas on that girl?"

Ginger,

That reminds me of the Far side cartoon...

In panel #1, people were in line waiting to be admitted to Heaven. They were told "Welcome to Heaven. Here's your harp."

In Panel # 2, the people were told "Welcome to Hell. HEre's your accordian."

I once told my housemate that I was thinking of trying to learn to play the saxophone. He said "IF you do that, WD, I'm afraid I am going to have to take up the accordian in self defense!"

WD,

{Bazoinga. As in "Didja see the Bazoingas on that girl?" }

I didn't know "Bazoinga" was another word for "earring". :0)

What's wrong with earrings? Did somebody throw some at you as a small child and terrified you, and you swallowed them and developed a phobia toward them? Now you can't even bring yourself to say ... gasp! ... "earring".

(I hope you know I'm just giving you some good-natured ribbing. I just wanted to lighten things up.)

Take care, WD.

Seeker

"Honorable" when referring to U.S. Congresspeople.

Hi Seeker,

The bazoinga thing was from a female stand up comedian who observed that guys can use any nonsense syllables to denote women's breasts.

The choking on an earring thing could be pretty horrifying too. Have you ever got one in your hair? I hate that.

Seeker, I find you to be a gentle person, and even when you are at your most urined off you are a gentle person. At least here, at least so far at least with me.

As far as I am concerned you and I are cool.

And I like it that you checked in on this potentially very naughty thread.

And I agree, use of the word "honorable" to describe certain legislators, perhaps most of them, goes beyond offensive to being truly profane, in the original sense of the word.

Hey, one word I have never heard on television is "vagina." I wonder if that is on the secret list of forbidden words.

This may be a bit off-subject as it is from a book, but since the first time I read it 20+ years ago I thought it was funny.

The teenage character was talking about the word "penis" and how it sounds like something you would only pick up with a pair of tweezers. He prefers the word "cock" as it is a jaunty sort of free-wheeling word.

Hi Lolli,

In the hands of the wrong person, an accordian can be a heinous instrument of torture.

In fact, even experts use it that way sometimes.

Thank you

WD,

I must admit, I've never had any negative experience with earrings, not even with getting one caught in my hair. I've heard that women sometimes pull each other's earrings when they get into a fight. Ouch!

I'm flabbergasted you find me to be gentle. I don't think I sound very gentle when I'm angry, but thanks.

I'm not a prude. I've heard every American swear word there is. My brothers swore all the time while I was growing up, and I occasionally got caught up in it myself till I was in high school. I never felt comfortable swearing, though. Something about it always seemed, well, ugly.

I'm glad you think we're cool together. I wondered at times on that one thread if we'd ever be civil with each other again. Thanks.

Seeker

twinks,

Some musicians don't think accordions are a serious instrument. I don't know why exactly. Maybe it's because you have to pump them continually to generate a sound, and so it limits what rhythms they can do.

Maybe they sound to some too much like a vacuum cleaner with a shrill tone; maybe it's because they never caught on in the United States. I don't know about England.

Hope you're doing well, and that's wonderful news about your test results. I hope you can rest easier now.

I must confess that I have written aand recorded a polka which offers a brief treatment of kundalinia yoga.

By coincidence it was called "The Biconical Sphincter Polka"

The accordion reference was a tangent that my brain went on when thinking about naughty words and where they come from. Fagotta is Italian (I think) for bassoon, and it just always seemed really funny to me that anyone would use the word fag as a nasty name for someone. It's a bassoon, ya know? It can even sound pretty when played well.

The accordion always seemed like a better insult, musically speaking. Although my boyfriend plays the accordion. I play the piccolo. No one likes us.
