      For those who don't know it's called a Fag. Isn't that queer? LOL
      BTW the word queer was used to say "I don't feel well"
      So if you feel queer have a fag. LOL

        Funny how different words have different meanings in other countries.
        In the U.K. if you call someone a twat you're calling them an asshole. Different here but very close LOLOLOL

            And you know what, Mark, I remember when could be called gay if you were happy, or you could go to a party and have a gay time. That word has been stolen from us.

            I once heard a British guy ask another guy "fancy a fag?"

            I'm not sure where that was going but I hope they either lived happily ever after, or enjoyed a smoke together..... whatever

              I like the English. They are quite humorous.

              Go on put the kettle on...do you take sugar? No thank you Turkish, I'm sweet enough.

                  On the contrary Harrisonm, those words or expressions have been around for years in the British Commonwealth.

                  There was a bar in wpg mb on panet rd called The Gay Cavilier with a pic of a musketeer. Had many beers there until things started to change. Then the ownership changed and they dropped the gay now it’s just The Cavilier.

                      i think what harry meant was that the sodomites stole that word from us, not the british

                      speaking of gay, anyone remember the flintstones?
