I thought cue was only something used in Snooker, or similar games.

Going forward's I propose that this thread be titled


FivesGoldNorks Fri 07-Dec-12 15:26:28

chris, or in a theatre, which I imagine is where the general use has come from

Someone said 'one foul swoop' on here the other day.

I judged a bit.

A fowl swoop is what my chickens do when I put treats out.

one foul swoop

Is that when a low flying duck craps on your head?

Whilst we're at it, the 'why' after 'hence' is completely fucking redundant. Stop it!

MadSleighLady Fri 07-Dec-12 18:54:18

Oh, I don't think she's doing it purposefully.

It's defiantly cue. I'm in complete agreeance.

BinksToEnlightenment Fri 07-Dec-12 18:57:35

This seems to have caused an arguement

victoriaplum01 Fri 07-Dec-12 18:57:39

Can I pretend I'm on Facebook for a minute and just click 'Like' to this thread?

My favourite thing (not really a MN special) is when people offer a 'chester draws' for sale... grin

I am awful at spelling that stupid word i am probably a bit thick but if i can't remember i say Q on forums blush

BigBabyBoots Fri 07-Dec-12 19:01:24

picnic saw a fine example of that on Facebook earlier:

"I defiantly got out of the wrong side of bed this morning!"


ArielTheBahHumbugMermaid Fri 07-Dec-12 19:08:57

You're just making the OP into an escape goat.

GreatCongas Fri 07-Dec-12 19:13:35

My youngest defiantly gets out of bed all the time
