Your etymology was fun and drew out a couple good jokes (dare I say "gags"?). You don't strike me as a "she" in any case. I read the part where YOU weren't offended by the "wench" slang already. I do actually read these threads before posting. I read the entire Spam War before posting in it, which took 9 hours. How nutty is that?


That is VERY nutty. :shocked:

Since wench originally meant "girl or young woman" I move we should not use the word wench on females over 30 :evilgrin:

Oh, so sexism is wrong but age discrimination is fine? :idiot: Ye notty, ye ban :moon:
That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

The great thing about Beaker is his ability to provoke while still being decorous, or at least within acceptable rules of conduct - Qwertyuiopasd

^^ Since 'flour' originally meant 'flower', I think we should not use the word to mean 'edible white stuff'.
