It's amazing that while we are discussing the pros and cons of women and donuts, Kate White has left this thread and started another although what it is about is anyones guess.

Yes, but you are not Canadian, nor Calgarian, so luckily for me you are in the minority hereabouts!

In fact, if I knew you were in the line-up behind me, I'd deliberately take my time choosing! ....... so stick that in your pipe and do with it as you wish!

Does anyone know where the term 'Chav' comes from?

I live in Cheltenham & have heard it stands for - Cheltenham Average.

Don't know what the little darlings at Cheltenham Ladies College would think of that

You wished her luck, but I fear (based on her diction) she won't be getting a "skilled worker" visa, and that she is rather fond of Burberry.
