“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!
a dozen to kick things off
17 Maps to the Stars
20 Sorry to Bother You
21 Sophie’s Choice
25 Austin Powers
32 Lethal Weapon 2
41 Sherlock Gnomes
49 Dumb and Dumber
50 Jurassic Park
You see, I told you this would be easy. Only one miss.
Are you seated comfortably?
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!
Day late for Canada Day, but I hope you found time to celebrate over there in the Old World.
Do you do most of your writing in this room?
Sorry, I was finding words that describe your daily outpourings….
Have you visited the facilities in picture 42?
I’ll smash your nog.
I’ve heard that was voted The Nicest Toilet in All of Scotland. True?
No, that toilet had a picture of your face in it. Guess why?
*sigh* So much anger. I might almost suspect constipation. Have you tried Colon Blow?
Is that your pseudonym?
Only on my rap albums.
Again, your obsession with excrement….
After all the time I spent coming up with a quiz to salute your achievement in film criticism. Oh well. Can’t please everybody.
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.
You’re already greedy for more?? There really is no satisfying you.
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.
Hm. I’ve discussed the writings of Kurt Vonnegut.
Have you only seen the movies? They’re not as good.
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.
Mention “of the Vonnegut books I’ve read.”
Oh dear. Well, at least you tried.
Mother Night, Cat’s Cradle and Slaughterhouse Five. Father Kurt.
So, who won the quiz? Anyone else in double figures? Get the podium out!
Where did you mention Cat’s Cradle?
You did realize the award for this quiz is a plastic plunger, right?
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!
Why are you only looking at the women? Is this some kind of potty fetish? Is it a thing in Scotland?
Sigh. Tell it to the rozzers, Bunty…
Really man, really!?!? This was a tough enough subject, but to add pictures of women on the throne? Have you no shame?
Women have to make use of these facilities as well. They even have their own. I think Jonathan Swift wrote a poem about this . . .
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….
You are a romantic, but I can’t hold that against you.
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……..
Bookstooge Back Bacon?
I think I just threw up, into the khazi….
Well, that’s what the khazi’s for. Among other things.
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?
Oh well, death before dishonour. Loo isn’t posh everyone calls it that, from pauper to prince!
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.
So many words for it, my dad used to call it the khazi.
I had to look that one up. Interesting etymology. A Cockney corruption of Italian casa (house).
I know, I don’t get that at all.
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.
Dix might call it a dunny.
