What!? What did you just say? Fruit tea?

Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?

When I moved to the US, my mother, who is Dutch, was required to take a driving test in Houston, TX. While she spoke English well, there were a few words that escaped her. On approaching an intersection with an orange light she asked the evaluator, "When I get to the intercourse, do I stop or keep going?"

She passed...

That as bad as putting catsup/ketchup on a hotdog.

This type of behaviour is a direct result of the U.S. gaining independence from the British colonies.

Dash it, it's just not on. Totally bad form.

Right! Own up. Who let the Australians in?


Howyagoing mate. If we bring the Esky beer and sheilas we can gatecrash any shindig; as long as the beer flows the cricket is playing on TV in the background and the Poms are nowhere to be seen,

Now stop being useless and throw another shrimp on the Barbie

Tea is only good when you mix it with sugar and pour it over some ice. Maybe a slice of lemon, but hey, drink it how ever you want to over yonder.

Truth is, I could care less.
Problem is, the situation does not rank high enough for me to care less anymore than I currently do.

Maybe its time we designated our global, international language with a different term rather than English.

I prefer 'Intra', Intra would allow for colloquial terms like, aussie, yank, or whinging pommy.

I could care less... but it would be difficult.

For all 'intensive' purposes (that one annoys me, too... it is 'intents and' for the curious) "sayings" are dead.

Sayings are so commonly mangled and with malapropisms also pouring from texts and the phones of the masses, we should just forget the whole thing and reduce our blood pressures to live another day.

Heck, I'm calling the 'cattle' black as I'm guilty, too.

I hope the instructor said, "You definitely keep going."

And having known a few Dutch women... are you sure it was a mistake on her part?

I have seen members from The U.S. post on ATS threads the saying " I could care less"

STOP

The correct saying is " I couldn't care less"

www.worldwidewords.org...

Rant over.


"I could care less," could really just mean something along the lines of, "I care so little right now, but if I mustered up some effort I'm sure I could summon an emotional state where I could care even less than I do right now!"

Ever thought of that? Betcha didn't
