This is stolen from a recent Adam Buxton podcast, but the word for someone who runs a restaurant is restaurateur, not restauranteur.

No Country for Old Men isn’t a comedy caper with a couple of Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau types going “oh god, what are we like?! Cuh, my knees.” It sounds quite different to that.

Pigeonholes aren't the holes on the outside of dovecotes to let the birds in and out, but the more numerous nesting holes covering the insides which act more like, well, pigeonholes.

Bird's nest soup isn't a fanciful name for a soup with stuff in it which vaguely resembles birds' nests, but is actually a soup made from literal birds' nests. Of further interest is the fact that the particular birds in question make their nests out of their own saliva, so bon appétit.

A kipper isn’t a species of fish.

Neither is 'sardine'. Or 'pilchard'.

When I think people are talking about tomalley in weird contexts, they’re probably actually talking about tamale.

Isn't that the police captain Cypress Hill say they're going to put a 'slug' into?

Canal/Channel, same thing, same etymology. You could say it's too obvious. You could certainly say.

I'd never really put this together despite watching quite a bit of stuff from France's StudioCanal/Canal+ I'm a fucking idiot.

On the Bake Off Extra Slice show they introduced someone in the audience called Salmon Dave which seemed a reasonable name for someone on a cooking show... then I realised it was two people...

Well, after all, the show was originally presented by Melon Sue...

The sport of "real tennis" which normal tennis derives from is still played in some places, and uses a fucking state of a court design:



Careful, mate. Dedans penthouse, that.

If anyone would like to photoshop that image to change the names of each line and area I would support that.

Does that mean all other tennis is merely imaginary? Heavy.

The other sort of tennis is relatively new.  It was invented in the late 19th century but only started to get really popular after it was shown  on television, and it was shown on TV largely because it was easy to film - small tv-screen-shaped pitch, easy to zoom in on spectator reactions etc.

tennis got it backwards. Lawn Tennis is what you were trying to play; Real Tennis what happens when want to do that but you live in a shithole and have to make accomodations for whatever space you have, plus the diversity of ability, age, and willingness to throw a complete fucking benny about things not going your way

Real Tennis can definitely fuck right off
Quote
There are two basic designs in existence today: jeu quarré, which is an older design, and jeu à dedans. The court at Falkland Palace is a jeu quarré design which unlike jeu à dedans court lacks a tambour and dedans.
Quote
There are numerous and widely varying styles of service. These are given descriptive names to distinguish them – examples are "railroad", "bobble", "poop", "piqué", "boomerang", and "giraffe".
Quote
For instance, when the ball bounces twice on the floor at the service end, the serving player does not generally lose the point. Instead a "chase" is called where the ball made its second bounce and the server gets the chance, later in the game, to "play off" the chase from the receiving end; but to win the point being played off, their shot's second bounce must be further from the net (closer to the back wall) than the shot they originally failed to reach.
And we moan about VAR?!

Quite amusing that one of the most popular sports is based on a game that someone clearly invented as a wind-up.
