Hmm. There are around a quarter of a million words in the English language, so anyone who can't make colourful conversation without resorting to the handful of words which are now considered offensive is lacking either vocabulary or imagination.

Nice POTD, by the way, good to see the big blue boat coming along....

And therein lies the problem. Things that are considered offensive... It's the reasons for concocting the offence and the people who do it that get up everyone's nose, not the words.

It's like the long and faltering plans to do a remake of 'The Dam Busters'- all anyone asks about is what Guy Gibson's dog should be called. I'll tell you what it should be called- it should be called Nigger, because that was his ruddy name!!!

Ooh! You mustn't - someone will take offence. Quick, fiddle with history and make it go away!

The special black 'It'll Fix' shirts are team only gear, a bit of workshop branding to make us all look a bit more professional and a bit less like a random assortment of tramps.

Or that might just be me! :lol:

Trouble is, I've got smart new team polo shirts, new black Dickies workwear trousers and new steelies, and I'm so smart now I'm afraid to touch anything and get dirty!!! :lol:

Very proud of my 'It'll Fix' gear though. 8-)
