Quiz the one hundred-and-thirty-fourth: On the bog (Parts one and two)

“Bog” is another one of my favourite Britishisms. It’s right up there with “jumper.” And now that you can take the Internet with you practically anywhere, you can even do this week’s special double-decker quiz while enthroned on the most comfortable seat in your house. Enjoy!

        I’ll leave it to your conscience as to whether screenshotting fifty people in the act of voiding their bowels, then posting the images shorn of their artistic context, is an appropriate way for anyone to spend their time. I’m not judging you, but many may.

        Happy Canada Day yourself, Bunty!

        After all the time I spent coming up with a quiz to salute your achievement in film criticism. Oh well. Can’t please everybody.

      3. tensecondsfromnow

        It’s amazing to think that within your peer group, screenshotting Julianne Moore on the big must be seen as quite an achievement. Surprised you managed to stop yourself at 50, imagine you’ll have plenty left over for later use.

        Some of us discuss the writing of Kurt Vonnegut, some of us capture pics of women on the lavatory, that’s just the way it is, as Bruce Hornsby used to say.

      5. tensecondsfromnow

        If you had a reading age of more than five, you’d have seen mention in the comments of the Vonnegut books I’ve read.

        The difference is, I don’t collect photos of women on toilets. That’s your bag. Tragic.

      6. tensecondsfromnow

        Yes, and I know exactly where I’ll be putting it, Bunty, you’re lucky to have a literary great like myself taking the time to tour your shambolic collection of treasured pictures of women on toilets. I mentioned Cat’s Cradle when I was shopping you to the authorities, Baldy, so hahahahah! Game over!

      1. Bookstooge

        I’m pretty sure they don’t. Just like they don’t fart or belch either.

        I suspect Mister Swift pulled a fast one on you….

      2. Bookstooge

        Maybe I should start my own brand, like the Tudor’s.

        Should I go for food or cosmetics? What’s a hot commodity in Canada these days? Besides bacon I mean. Because I am NOT selling Bookstooge Bacon, noooooo……..

    Well the Eminent Mr.Dix has got the only ones I recognised. What is that guy in No.10 doing?? Looks rude! Also bog is a horrid word, don’t hear that very often nowadays, mostly we call it the loo.

      Actually I think the guy in 10 is dead.
      If I remember correctly I might have first heard the word bog used in a Pinter play. But I’m not sure. Loo is kind of posh isn’t it?

        Well I do like bog. I knew one person who insisted on saying lavatory. I’ve never been keen on that. Sounds too much like laboratory.

      2. fragglerocking

        Apparently it could also come from Swahili where a loo is called a M’khazi, sounds more like it. Up here in the North East it’s called a netty.
