Δ Lee 15 years ago Hi Charlie, it’s not a competition! No matter how often I clear some space, the stuff just creeps back. I realise it looks as if I’m trying to imply a certain creativity, but in fact it just irks me. Oddly enough, I almost never consult the dictionary of slang as a reference book, but enjoy dipping into it. Have you run across Tom Dalzell’s The Slang of Sin, which is tucked into another corner of my desk and also makes for great browsing? And then there’s Geoffrey Hughes’s Swearing, which however is a history. Charlie Butler 15 years ago Okay, you win! (How often do you consult your dictionary of slang?)
