Things you don't get ....... but everyone else does

When I googled Shiba, it is a Japanese dog. Surely not?
I think the name you have there is Shiba Inu. Very clever and good looking furmonsters.

Also a gravy made with meat juices or fat, onions and tomato. Sometimes quite spicy. With all the dialects around in Africa, it can be anything from shiba to sheba to seshebo and a few other names.

Gen (and random question)... Can you 'hold your own' in any of the dialects/languages ...Xhosa / Yoruba / Bantu stuff etc etc?
 
isiZulu and isiXhosa are very similar, as are the other Nguni languages. I can get by in isiZulu but have to concentrate and pay attention for the others to understand them, and isiXhosa has a lot of different clicks to complicate things. Cuts will take the piss out of me speaking isiZulu with my mlungu accent every chance he gets.

I have a smattering of a few others I've picked up - kiSwahili, Lingala, seSotho, siNdebele and so on. Chuck in French and Portuguese bits and pieces, along with English, Afrikaans and basic Cloggie and German and my head is a fucking linguistic mess. Then my Froggie colleagues get on my case because I don't speak more French to them.

The cunts won't even try to speak Afrikaans to me.

ETA: Also learned a bit of Hebrew as a kid for some strange reason.

You should see “ladies” day at Redcar racecourse. There are no words to describe the attendees.
Fat, ugly, goping, pigs?

It’s a start. Having been to the Roodee (Chester) a very long time ago, I’m still searching for words.
I once got roped into doing the run home from a PO‘s mess summer ball as a taxi driver. Some of the sights I saw that night will never leave me.
Black eyes, vomit, torn clothing and ripped tights. And that was just the blokes.

Not sure if this qualifies for this thread as I may be missing something.
Anyhow, my question is this: have people been cruelly telling Peter Crouch that he is funny all of his life just to laugh at him being a twot to the point that he is now fronting a 'comedy' show and are thus splitting their sides at his expense or do I just find the nasal bean-pole very irritating?

I lasted about 1 minute past the introductions. Sometimes you can tell that it is not going to get better as it gets going: This was one one of those times.
 
American Football

I've tried watching a few games. I think it is a boring game where the players do about 10 seconds of work before stopping for a minute or two and the TV networks have to desperately pad out the viewing time by showing everything under the sun including the coaches drawing on tablets or the cheerleaders.

Even in the Superbowl, people seem to make more noise about the half time show and the TV commercials that play during the game.

They keep on banging on about it being a strategic game, yet I doubt any of the fans would sit through a chess tournament.

You are watching the wrong version. This one may keep your attention.

It's a bit like a religion in some states' ingrained in them to love it, and anything else but true devotion is seen as a sign of weakness.

It also is a metaphor for the US dream, ill-educated but healthy kids (mainly black now) can be ridiculously rich and famous for posing around in hefty PPE and doing much else.

It's also is a career path for dancy-type smoking hot birds. Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team is my goto show for hot sweaty chicks that doesn't involve porn

Other than that, it's like watching beige paint dry on a beige wall.

I was going to ask who Peter Crouch is but I checked and realised I wouldn't know him because he plays football - apart from the fact he seemed to have a delicious wife. All of that makes me wonder from the previous posts as to why he has been given some sort of television show.
