Now I have to ask... Oct 3, 2010

Given my limited knowledge of the English language, may I ask the native speakers whether "feck-e-dee" is an onomatopoeia for the sound made by a piece of luggage being put in the wrong baggage claim belt?

LOL Tomás Oct 3, 2010

F*ck (with an e) is f*ck with an Irish accent.

F*ckity (with an e) is a multi-function word, somewhat akin to f*cking (with a u) - although f*cking (with an e) does exist, and can be an adjective ("one of those feckity 70s picture windows" - clearly an opinion adjective, hence its position at the head of the adjectives), a noun ("does anyone know what the f*ckity has happened here?") and, most commonly, an adverb, as in "f*ckity f*ck", in which case it is an intensifier.

Clear?!? Wonder if there's an article in this...

At least I feel reasonably confident that no-one is going to accuse me of using bad language.icon_smile.gif

Hilarious Oct 4, 2010

Thanks Noni!
A couple of days ago I booked a flight with a low-cost airline and yelled F*CK (yes, with an E, I live in Northern Ireland) when I discovered the cost of checking in one bag... the flight was 70 euro and they charged 22 euro for one bag. Insane! I'll stuff it all in my small trolley..
Thanks again for the laugh!icon_smile.gif
