Did you see that they used Joe's site as a reference? Very cool. I put a post over on the BB meta thread about it.

Today I learned of the list of words that you can't use in the Irish parliament to describe another member of parliament. These include:

  • brat

  • buffoon

  • chancer

  • communist

  • corner boy

  • coward

  • fascist

  • gurrier

  • guttersnipe

  • hypocrite

  • rat

  • scumbag

  • scurrilous speaker

  • yahoo

    Who calls someone a "yahoo"? Which also leads to another one of my favourite Youtube videos where after a long debate, a parliament member gets annoyed by Deputy Stagg as he's constantly getting interrupted "most unparliamentary language".

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 His not-at-all-heart-felt apology is brilliant in its "i dont mean this at all", especially after he has shouted "f### you" twice. 

And are there four people in parliament?

There are 166 elected TDs (MPs).

I couldn't find anything about why there were so many empty seats but it could have been a late-night debate where the majority of people had gone home or (most likely) the rest of them were in the Parliament Pub (yes there is one).

I can post some of our other delightful parliament moments, they are quite funny:

"Take for example, fraping-where you are raped on Facebook" (I don't think so...)

This joy- "wiffy" indeed

I like "corner boy."  I don't think I've ever been mad enough to call somebody that.  And is "corner girl" OK?

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

I'd never heard of it before up until today, it's more older slang but a good one- means somebody who's idle, spends their days hanging around on corners. 

I'm sure "corner girl" is OK, I'll ask my Granddad tomorrow and see if he knows it.

'Guttersnipe' needs to be brought back into fashion as well, it's a perfect derogatory term!

I like how words drop out of use and how some words completely change.......'Bad' used to mean just.....'Bad' and 'wicked' meant 'wicked' now they both can mean..........

 

"The Beatles' are wicked man......."

"Yeah bro.......real bad!"

 

Awful used to mean filled with awe.....How that switched I don't know.

In the New England region of the US, "wicked" is an adjective used similar to the word "very". For example, "The Beatles are wicked good." Talk about your oxymorons.a-hard-days-night-paul-10
Other examples: It's wicked cold out. I'm wicked tired.

Whenever people say using bad language makes you appear uneducated, I like to post this video. Sometimes an expletive is the best form of relief:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_osQvkeNRM

(If you haven't seen the show with Hugh Laurie and Fry that goes throughout the clip- watch it immediately, just go off the forum and watch an episode, it's called 'A Bit of Fry and Laurie'

And Billy Connolly (I am trying to create a religion centered on him, will update on it) is another spokesperson for the use of oaths. I recreated this wonderful speech during a lunch break in front of about 40 people, good times...

I have a personal rule about never using expletives (unless, say, I am about to be shot, or-- perish the thought!-- a Beatle has died, or something appropriately drastic has occurred), but I am very fluent in other forms of emphatic language, and I agree, sometimes ya just gotta swear.
