Chav's Corner
« on: December 26, 2014, 07:20:56 AM »
I recently heard stories about selfie sticks..the devices that allow you to hold your iPhone about a metre in front of your face.  I had never seen one until the other day.  On Christmas Eve some friends took us to a restaurant some distance from Korat.  There I was able to see a proliferation of selfie sticks.  I wonder what archaeologists will make of these objects when they are excavated from the midden in four or five thousand years time?  Pool cues? Were the owners too poor to have servants to take their photos? Or were the owners just chavs?  Fortunately I did not get a selfie stick for Christmas.

Hi Thaiga,  thanks for pointing this out.  This marvel of technology is something that has passed me by until I saw one the other day.

Dawn, you are lucky you did not order one from eBay. You would be extremely frustrated!

Dawn, had I known that you were desperate for an innuendo then I would have given you one.

this is what wiki says ;)

the simple changing of the pronunciation of a word can be used to make it sound vulgar e.g. innuendo to "in-your-endo"

Hi Dawn,  This is from your wiki reference and is my intended meaning:-

The term sexual innuendo has acquired a specific meaning, namely that of a "risqué" double entendre by playing on a possibly sexual interpretation of an otherwise innocent uttering. For example: "We need to go deeper" can be seen as both a request for further inquiry on any given issue or a request to go deeper into an orifice.
