Unacceptable

Please respond to this PM so I know you've received it. If we do not receive a response PM from you in a timely manner (within a couple of days is ok, but we know you're around a lot so don't take too long), this will also be considered grounds for a one-week ban.


If I do not respond to them they will ban me for one week. So not responding is ground for a ban? Ridiculous. See you guys in a week.
I find it rather amusing, when thought of as ignorant or stupid(though I can be on many subjects). Especially by those who believe in a deity up in heaven watching our every move, and rewarding or punishing us after we have expired.

I truly wonder now if this will get you a reprimand????

Fortunately most people who use that expression don't know what it means. It may be literally true of some teenagers but it is not very nice. 'git' is a corruption of 'get' short for 'beget' as in beggetting a child. It refers to a child begotten by accident usually by a prostitute. The implication is that a git is an unwanted and often neglected child.

The sixties pop band the Monkees didn't know what it meant either. They wanted to release a song called 'Randy Scouse Git' an expression they had heard in the British sit com 'Till Death us Do Part' until it was explained to them that this meant the oversexed liverpudlian child of a prostitute and were told to come up with an alternative title for the song. So they called the song 'Alternative Title'. - true fact fans.

I love that song. Great etymology, Moon.

Link

Randy Scouse Git" is a song written by Micky Dolenz in 1967 and recorded by The Monkees. It was the first song written by Dolenz to be commercially released, and became a #2 hit in the UK where it was retitled "Alternate Title" after the record company (RCA) complained that the original title was actually somewhat "taboo to the British audience". Dolenz took the song's title from a phrase he had heard spoken on an episode of the British television series Till Death Us Do Part, which he had watched while in England. The song also appeared on The Monkees TV series, on their album Headquarters  and on several "Greatest Hits" albums. Peter Tork has said that it is one of his favorite Monkees tracks.


Here's a bit of trivia embedded in the origin story:

The British series Till Death Us Do Part also was the direct inspiration for All in the Family Link

It caused a lot of controversy in its day over language. The original randy scouse git Tony Boothe was the father of Cherie Blaire.

Does that derive from "Scalliwags?"

I thought it did but it could be cognate

One last question... Am I the only one who keeps reading the thread title in the thread listing and thinking, "You keep using that word..."
