Just say the bloody work for fuck's sake. AIBU to want to stab stab STAB people who use these twattish tweeisms?

Father Ted is wholly to blame for everyone using feck ceres. Before then I never heard it over here.

The difference is that it's not used correctly here. You never hear anyone English fecking something out.

There is no sexual connotation to feck like there is fuck. Fecking is stealing or throwing something.

Argh, shouldn't have looked at that link. Now i want one of those fecking posters.

It's a tone of voice. Comes in handy on the internet sometimes. I dislike nmisms like b*tch more.

LadyBeagleBaublesandBells Sat 08-Dec-12 12:47:36

Yes Gwendoline and Ceres, it was Father Ted that introduced the word into British culture.
And since it was the best comedy series ever in the whole world, people will use it.grin

You're nearly right. it was one of the best comedy series in the whole world. Actually, feck it, it was the best. I'll shove Blackadder etc into second grin

feck is a word though i shall continue to say feck and fricking and you will lump it grin

That whole 'popcorn' shit drives me mad too, I know it's not a tweeism but god it drives me mad.

What the Jeff is grim.

Like feck - I have Irish aunties and mum so feck is vair familiar to me grin!

scottishmummy Sat 08-Dec-12 13:05:24

Jingleallthejay Sat 08-Dec-12 13:05:52

when a fight starts or somebody says something vair OTT , you will get people passing out virtual popcorn and watching it all go off,

AmIthatTinselly Sat 08-Dec-12 13:44:23

I use feck in RL too, as I am another one who got it from Father Ted. as well as being word and note perfect at My Lovely Horse, both versions

I don't, however, understand Blardy. What the feck is it meant to mean?

MardyBra Sat 08-Dec-12 13:45:04

I've seen a few grips being offered recently to posters who need to get one iyswim. That could quickly get very annoying.

I get very annoyed by the spitting on keyboards, emissions of bits of wee, etc. Unless the poster is actually spitting or weeing.

MardyBra Sat 08-Dec-12 13:46:16

Oddly bleddy annoys me more that blardy. confused

scottishmummy Sat 08-Dec-12 13:47:23

" I've just sicked up a bit in my mouth".

No you haven't. You were mildly surprised and no more.

ImperialBlether Sat 08-Dec-12 13:53:31

"What the jeff?" and "Blardy" make me feel ill.

They really are awful. Can someone who uses them please try to justify using such hideous words? And then can they stop using them?

scottishmummy Sat 08-Dec-12 13:53:38

haha I'd forgotten the widdle sicked up
look sister control yourself,no oissing,puking
It's Only mn not and you need not give an exaggerated account of you and mn

CecyHall Sat 08-Dec-12 13:57:11

I'm not keen on 'fred' instead of thread. Not sure if there is a reason behind it but it annoys me.

What the Jeff is going on in this Fred?

I've just sucked up in my mouth a bit. Totes not amazeballs!

I peed myself at some of this post. Feck it.

<dons tin hat and runs> blardy 'ell

Sicked up*

Of these posts*

scottishmummy Sat 08-Dec-12 14:07:58

you know the wee stars either side to bold thread
I expect you're not sicked up at all,just badly making a point

No bolding just correcting
