Bollocks!

After reading several posts I have started to notice a trend in which some contributors insist on using British slang, and unfortunately, using it in its wrong form.
For example…the term Bollocks is not the term Bullocks. Bullock is I believe a large male cow, the John Holmes of the farmyard. To say “Man, that’s the Bollocks” is to describe something as fantastic! To say “Bollocks to that” is to show lack of enthusiasm. The term has also evolved to be non-bias to other living beings with testicles.
For example “It was the dog’s bollocks” shows great enthusiasm and appreciation to the topic!
Know your Bollocks and know where and when to show your Bollocks….
:p

Well done mate.

But I fancy you get on by the way, and stop paying close mind to this shite.

Would you Adam & eve it? Opened up the mince pies to see if the Chinas had replied. Guess this post was a bit of a pain in the Gregory peck! Never mind, hop in the jam jar, go down the frog & toad and have a couple of Brittany Spears. Nice one!:eek:

Perhaps a rare example of a Bullock being the bollocks.. some might say that Sandra is the dog's dangley bits. Good to see applied knowledge in practice.

Ummm, stick it in your lorry?

Or, to ~dazed~: stick it in your lori.

Or am I thinking of the boot?

No, Das Boot... great film.

I wore galoshes once, and ate goulash. Not quite the same thing.
