Something new under the sun

Well the word 'gammon' used a racist insult is new to me, but will it gain traction?

Probably, and as is often the case the comments make more sense than the article. They are also amusing.

Anyone using the word "gammon" as a racist insult, should be put to the steak, and grilled, until they apologise Huh

Re: Something new under the sun

We have an insult divide in this country.

Insult one side and it's deemed unacceptable, insult the other and it's "can't you take a joke" funny. Well it's a funny old world we now find ourselves in that's for sure and as an Englishman living in Wales married into a mixed race family trust me, I've just about heard 'em all. 

All water off a ducks back of course - until somebody tries to drown you. 

PS. @shutter - I'll have mine well done on the outside but pink in the middle. Thumbs Up

Re: Something new under the sun

I quite like gammon and you can have it any meal of the day.
Not gonna be insulted if I get called it - now call me Tofu or Quorn and we'd have an issue Grin

Re: Something new under the sun

My Mrs in a moment of madness tried to palm me off with veggie curry by telling me it was rabbit.

Fat chance.

Never done it since, and never nice when being fooled with food.

Re: Something new under the sun

I think a veggie would notice the lack of a bland, spongy texture if you swapped their meatless alternatives for actual meaty produce, quorn is pretty dire speaking as a meat-eater...

Ah, but is it insulting to call somebody a veggie? Roll eyes

Re: Something new under the sun

Only if they accept that it's offensive to tell me what I should be eating according to their dictations... Funny
