Viewing Radio Times cover from a queer angle

I did just that the other day, and because of the angle and light saw Sandi Toksvig close to whom I thought was Claudia Winkleman. I thought, so you never know!

It was only later, I realised the other was a man, Noel Fielding.

Am I suffering from old age confusion, needing my specs updated, or what? Or are the face shapes so similar, I was right to be tricked?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I thought my new hobby of pushing a trolley around the supermarket was sad.....

@Luzern 

Odd that word has not been sensored ?

Intresting how words can take on a different meaning over time.

You could have used unusual or odd.

What would Sigmund Freud make of it ?

People of a certain age wouldn’t notice the use of ‘those’ words.

Re: Viewing Radio Times cover from a queer angle

Thanks all for comments on my linguistic skills and sobriety.Tongue Of course I never realised the q word mean anything other than odd, or strange concerning the two personages. Believe me!

Putting the two side by side, I feel there is some similarity between them both.

@Luzern 

For the word in question, -  and yes it is odd how it has not been blocked by Plusnet and 'the computer says no' - you must have led a sheltered life as I have always taken it as a derogatory term but there again, those of that persuasion have now 'owned' the word so all is well with the world except of course only those that now claim it as theirs can use it.

And ain't that the truth.

Re: Viewing Radio Times cover from a queer angle

Not always obvious what words are banned, when I first raised the subject of fracking near Blackpool the word was censored but later released from the list.

I did ask the mods for a list of banned words but they never go back to me !

Well Blackpool along with Boggy Bottom in Hertfordshire should both be banned - and I'm sure there's a town call Brown Willy somewhere.  Wink

Re: Viewing Radio Times cover from a queer angle

Well @Minivanman may think I had a sheltered life. He's right; many days and nights of early childhood were spent in one at home or school.Tongue Later on, about the time of the Lord Montague case, my sister's man was a copper from whom a learnt plenty. The it was National Service. I don't know, wether to laugh or cry at his belief. I think aFunny is more appropriate.

IMHO it is unfortunate that words may be appropriated to certain sections of society and I shall continue to make use of any in their original literate meanings.

Checkers, if set up without common sense can be daft. I was told of one that banned 'sex'. Essex, Sussex, Wessex and Middlesex got the axe.

I love the names of two Kent villages, quite close to each other: Badgers Mount, Pratts Bottom.

@Minivanman 

Brown Willy is a hill (tor) on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.  Wink

 

On the edge of Dartmoor in Devon there's a village called Crapstone.

Never hit a man with glasses.
Always use something larger and heavier.
