Incase you'd wondered

twat 1656, of unknown origin. A general term of abuse since 1920s.
The T-word occupies a special niche in literary history, however, thanks to a horrible mistake by Robert Browning, who included it in 'Pippa Passes' (1841) without knowing its true meaning. 'The owls and bats,/Cowls and twats,/Monks and nuns,/In a cloister's moods.' Poor Robert! He had been misled into thinking the word meant 'hat' by its appearance in 'Vanity of Vanities,' a poem of 1660, containing the treacherous lines: 'They'd talk't of his having a Cardinalls Hat,/They'd send him as soon an Old Nuns Twat.' (There is a lesson here about not using words unless one is very sure of their meaning.) [Hugh Rawson, "Wicked Words," 1989]
I particularly like the last sentence!

Oh, I thought it meant that which George W Bush and Tony Blair had in common, namely:

The War Against Terror, see?

Alice,


Do you live there or are you a diver? bet there's a queue of vehicles at that sign.

Alice is horrifed at the thought of being confused with the image she posted in the previous picture. Alice may not be a ravishing page 3 girl, but she looks acceptable in good lighting even before consumption of the 25 pints of lager it would undoubtedly take before the lady in the sign starts to look even vaguely presentable to you discerning RIBnet guys.

No, not a diver, and not living there (which is asumed to be Northern in latitude). Alice is a SOUTHERN gal!
