For a couple of weeks pensitivity101 gave us some unusual words to tantalise our fibbing expertise. This time she decided to turn it on its head and give us a list of familiar words to re-define.
It’s what my grandson said when I first taught him to ride a motorcycle. Broom! Broom!
- What is a doughnut?
It’s a method of attempted suicide, using the tight-assed car companies’ wheelbarrow-wheel excuse for a spare tire, because the bootstrap method doesn’t work. Safety regulations say that you are supposed to travel only a maximum of 50 kilometers, at a maximum speed of 50 KmH, using one.
I’ve been on the Expressway, doing 115 Kmh in a 100KmH zone, and been passed like I was standing still by someone with one on a drive/steering wheel. I don’t know how the drivers keep the car in a straight line, with it leaning toward me and the ditch. I slow down, and give them lots of room. When one of those things goes bad, it’ll take 3 or 4 other vehicles with it. 😳
- What is a penny farthing?
It’s the change you’ll get for a pint of Porter, at the pub out Pensitivity’s way. The civilized portion of the country had already gone decimal with their coinage, and was leaning toward the Euro, before the rational Brexit decision was made. They don’t cotton to that Daylight Saving Time stuff out there. Their clocks are always set at 1890.
- What is a blanket?
Also known as a wet blanket, he is the death of the party, present only because he’s some sports stud’s wing-man. He’s the one who, while everyone else is enjoying a little booze, a little grass, and some AC/DC, is prattling endlessly about the cultural significance of carved Popsicle sticks.
- What is a socket?
It’s a tag-line from the old Rowan and Martin Laugh-In TV program. Would I lie to you (again)? Don’t believe me?? Look here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6HIzYXZzI0
- What is tapestry?
It is/was Carole King’s 1971 album. I was wrong. I thought it contained the song that she wrote while she was still volunteering at the blood donor clinic, You’re So Vein.
- What is e-mail?
He/she/it/they are a member of the newly formed LGBTQ2S+, (A random group of symbols, almost as strange and meaningless as the name of Elon Musk’s 7th son – X Ӕ A-12) unsure whether it is more blessed to give or to receive – perhaps a bit of both if the company is congenial.
He’s a guy with an unbuttoned Mac, and a compulsion to display his shortcomings.
- What is a sandbag?
A golfing groupie 😳 (See; Tiger Woods)
- What is chocolate?
It is the delightful concoction that causes my tummy to get round, and the world go ‘round, but sadly, not my blood circulation system. The plaque I want is like the one that the wife’s godmother got from the Queen, for turning 100, not the stuff that clogs my arteries.
