Hm, I have to close that "quick reply" every time; is there a way to disable that?
Not that I can find. It seems to be a new "problem" though. I hold torgo responsible.

Just to be clear: a Brit would never say "Shag that!" or "Shag you arsehole!".

Shagging just means the sex act. Only.

Yep, they did try to use it as a bowdlerising term in the show Game On but "shagwit" doesn't do the job that "fuckwit" does.

Ah well at leas there was Sam Janus to look at. :)

Oh, well... so interchanges like that would only be potentially misunderstood by non-Brits, or those not immersed in British slang (which I gather, from the earlier posts in this thread, might be quite a few of us).

I don't recall the 'Fish Called Wanda' interchange that Mike5150 referred to, but I gathered from context it was applied that way there.

uhhh...having seen Holy grail enough times to almost have the black night part memorized and as a big fan of the office, I think I know a LITTLE bit more about England than you. I think I can say without fear of argument, that you don't know what the shag you are talking about!

Oh, and I also really liked the kids in the hall....that's England right?

Otto made that movie. He was a not too bright type that had a deep seated hatred for all English. He had a habit of going off the deep end and just ranting away at them. I just don't know how to post videos. :D

Imrahil, I can't use the quote button
Before you do anything, scroll down the the "quick reply" and on the upper left, minimize it. You are then free to quote.

*sorry if this has been covered. But then again, what would you care? I'm the one taking the time to type it...y'know what? SCREW YOU!!

Cool beans.  Thanks, I used to able just to hit quote don't know when it changed

Daphne generally said it was more appropriate than unfortunate.

Hey, that works. Thanks.

Or just go into your profile and turn off "quick reply", then you don't have to go minimizing it all the time.

The term shag seems old-fashioned now, even though (or perhaps because of) its wide use in the 90s.  At least, I don't hear it much any more.

My sister in law came over today and while we were talking she said "Man, I have a friend that has to "one up" me  ALMOST every time I say something" Which prompted ME to say "You think that's bad, I have a friend that has to "one up" me EVERY time I say something" Which prompted HER to say to my wife, "I want you to divorce him"  Man, people just don't appreciate people being jerks like they used to.
