    They have some classic one liners in there:biggrin

    "I like films with lesbians in them because it’s nice to think there are attractive women out there who can’t find a boyfriend" :p

    Taken from Series one Episode 4 - Inferno

    Excellent!

    Don't call him one Mitzs, it's not a nice thing to call a person - trust me. Whether it be the literal meaning or the more common meaning which is that a person is a worthless idiot - either way, it's the jargon of the block head soccer hooligan.

    IMHO that word should not be used on telly (or this forum come to think of it) and I am no prude.

    Blimey Bluerinse, I can think of far worse things to call someone than that. It must be your age showing.:D

    It's my upbringing showing. Call somebody that in or around Mitcham and you might not live long to brag about it.

    It's funny how people in different areas look at swear words with differing severity. I have lots of friends who have no problem with the c*** word but I found Welsh people especially take massive offence to it (Boyce and gang, what say you?). I once got chewed out in school by a teacher because she overheard me telling a friend to bugger off. I was dumbfounded, where I come from in Devon that's no worse than saying "on yer bike".

    hmmm, maybe I read something different. That noting really bad, it is something that men do. I don't know about over there but here it not consider dirty or anything. Well unless your doing it in public, that you will go to jail for. And that C word is just nasty anywhere you go.

    I think it all depends on how words are expressed and the intent behind them. The way a person from London might say the w word, makes it sound rather nasty and aggressive. A person with a welsh accent could probably make the same word sound like music. :biggrin

    I didn't know the C word is part of american swearing vocabulary. I saw in Friends once, Chandler called someone a wank, does that have the same meaning as the English version? If it does I'd be surprised because I've heard it said on a fair bit of American family TV. B*stard and p*ssed don't seem to be meant as seriously as here either. Again, they both show up on American TV a fair amount.

    [EDIT]I just remembered U2 saying w*nker in the Simpsons too so it can't be too bad over there. :-)

    Pete im suprised
    I can't say i've ever met anyone in mitcham I would be worried about saying anything to!
    and these days most of them only warrant a four letter word, bloody chav invasion!
    unfortunatly the same can be said for most of south london and even further!

    I'm impressed Blue, to go from Mitcham to the Gold Coast. I used to go to school in Mitcham, always found it a good idea to keep moving at all times, never stand still, don't look anyone in the eye and never walk on the pond if frozen over. I did once and fell through the ice, stunk of sewage for days

    Baba send me a privy with your words. I hate to get us both a vacation.:biggrin I only watched friends once and that was too much for me. I've never heard wank in any of our shows over here.
