Never heard that one before.

No, it isn't very PC

.People who resort to using medical words as terms of abuse  also  seem unable to spell them correctly- Spina bifida .

We had him too.

He would be locked up these days for the way he used to "knuckle" pupils on their heads. Bastard.:angry:

I think the name for this was a "Bolo", or similar.

We had a different 4 letter name for him :angry:

Trueblood was admonishing me hamster. Now you are taking him to task for spelling it wrong. The equivalent of chinning the wrong guy in a bar brawl.

Well, that's me.No one understands. I really must try and curb  my pedantry and violence.

Who cares what the PC brigade think it means? We've given it a new meaning. I suggest you watch "The F Word" episode of South Park.

No it's not. It's for people who are dumb asses. Biff.
