    Why is it we are laughed everywhere in the world because of the cheeky humour a big percentage of the population implements in the way they speak.
    I mean the younger are not that bad, but it depends on their parents. I have friends from many countries and feel that most of our nation is said to be a bit boring and too old fashioned...
    It is soooo not funny, and the way people from some professions speak is sooo boring. I hate bankers or any other type of people working in large organizations. I sometimes feel that they are brainwashed or soemthing and have to act in a defined way or they will be outsiders...
    I can even see it on this forum, I sometimes am wondering if I speak the same language that some of the forum members speak...

    Maybe it's too clever for you?

    hmm I 50% of the time cannot understand you posts for example. and who said it is the humour capital of the world. Because of the old fashioned snobs my favourite tv show for example Balls of Steel was stopped:mad:

    now we have to laugh at Jeremy Clarkson and his half baked jokes

    I'm afraid that's a lack of intelligence issue as opposed to anything else.

    Poodlepoo's writing in Chinglish tonight I see...

    Gyung Mou Gau, nei jung si fat nam je!

    For the linguistically curious this suggests that Poodle (Gyung Mou Gau) verbalises from the annular exit of his pelvic colon...

    I quite enjoyed Balls of Steel, but then I am not an oldee, I can 133t speak with the best of them :)

    Humour does vary through the generations, as does expression, and the English language is not formalised, so you can do what you like with it.

    Though, I am going to take this moment, to subtly hint at the use of their meaning to belong, and there as in over there; a location. I am not going to name, names. But, it is easy to pick up habits, and I prefer the distinction.

    I do find that your and you're is also something that is easy to slip up on.

    Anyway I am starting to turn into:

    Grammarian or Netiquette Nazi

    Why has he not been terminated, I gave express orders for FrolicingWithDogs to be castrated, followed by any desperate celeb to swallow his testis.

    You are so right, I'd personally like all Quantity Surveyors to speak like Moroccan cabbage farmers on helium.

    I will probably get shot down over this post, but surely this forum is made up of diverse people of diverse ages, so why slate the younger generation using personal attacks. Come on people, Where is the Love? Family Love.
