    Phew, I thought this was going to a thread on political correctness when I saw the title.

    I can't spell "necessarily" - I don't think I've ever spelt it right at the first attempt, there's always an s or a c in the wrong place or too many l's.

    Fingers hovering over the keyboard, ready to dip my bread on the chance to actually post things, bouncing on the bone thinking I could get away with it ?

    Can't pronounce your "f"s, "t"s or "h"s?

    Well you can't say fairer than that then!



    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I often wonder:
    On televised international football they put a suitable 3-letter shortening of the country's name at the top of the screen in the score box.

    So England are ENG, France are FRA, Germany are GER and so on.

    If Nigeria end up playing Germany...

    Lots of people you come across can't pronounce "h" properly.

    Ask. I keep saying axe. I also know some idjuts who pronounce Hyperbole as'hyper-bowl'

    I've got a mate who always pronounces 'smarmy' as 'swarmy', as in "Who's that swarmy git over there?", at which point I always look around for a Hindu teacher.

    He also says 'brought' for the past participle of 'buy', as in "I've just brought a load of beads from that swarmy git over there."
