Since I always assume that everyone is the same age as me (misplaced narcissism?  Don't know), 'adulting' just makes me think; well fuck, you're 29 and you've taken the bins out.  Here's a fucking medal.

This was covered in the previous thread, but every time I see that Pinch of Nom cookery book cropping up in the bestseller charts, another part of me dies.

We do use 'Holibob' in this house.

My flatmate is listening to Holiday by Green Day in her room at the moment and now I'm just imagining Billie Joe Armstrong squalling "...ON HOLIBOB!"

Myriad pop hits could be re-imagined with the hateful word.

If we took a holibob
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice


or

We're all going on a summer holibob
No more working for a week or two


And I thought that one couldn't get any more sinister.

Anyone who eats veggies or drinks a drinkipoos (the latter being at gin o'clock) also deserves to end.

"Are you veggie?"
Well, I follow a vegetarian diet
"Ooo I could never be veggie"
I wasn't asking you to be...
"Tried it for 2 weeks as a teenager ended up at the doctor"
Did you eat nothing but chips by any chance?

I think he’s referring to the maddening US habit of referring to vegetables as veggies isn’t he?

Chef Rodney on Masterchef US is always cunting on about 'veggies' but far worse to me, albeit not infantile or in the spirit of the thread, is referring to 'the protein', 'beautiful piece of protein', 'cooking the protein' and it makes me fucking SICK.

It's not fucking PROTEIN

I've seen this on menus before, and it made me feel vaguely sick. Not only is it puerile, it's inaccurate, because protein is only one component of any of those things. If you ever overcook meat and see that white stuff coming out of the flesh, that's protein, but nobody wants a beautiful piece of that.

This all started from a contestant on 1980s Blockbusters who referred to a telephone as a 'phneletone' and got a massive laugh.  Biggest cunt in history.

It's "meat free" or "plant based" diet now, apparently vegetarian is too ginger beer to sell soy burgers of summat.

Some people round here say 'hospikul' instead of 'hospital', and being a Scot with a still-very broad accent, I tend not to take issue with regional variations in pronunciation but 'hospikul' has always sounded uniquely infantile to me.
They also have two different ways of pronouncing 'ibuprofen'...both of which are entirely wrong.

Is that like when they say "arst" instead of ask in Eastenders? Is it a real regional variation?

A lot of younger Londoners say this or "arks", and it's very similar to the African-American "aks" for "ask" - maybe there's a connection?

S'not really infantile though, is it? It's just something people awkwardly say to make the things they're saying feel more natural and less rigid.

"Snack" as a verb.

Fucking throbbing carbuncle wearing a rugby top with the collar popped and a pair of Toms loafers walks up to the bar in Putney while waiting for the boat race to start.

"Hey buddy, what've you got that we can mmmsnack on?"

Ramekin of pistachios and a posh sausage roll, £8. Does he want the sausage roll warmed up and brought to the table outside with a dollop of mustard? Of course he does, the fucking cunt.

Why do we teach kids stupid words anyway? Like why is the alphabet pronounced differently when we teach it to kids? Why do parents talk about "front bottoms"? I get that you wouldn't want your toddler to start talking about cocks and cunts, but at least let them know that normal people call it a penis when they want to not be coarse and that anyone talking about willies wants theirs lopping off pronto.

I spoke to a client at work on the phone recently who gave me their email address using their own take on a phonetic alphabet, and it was all along the lines of “d for Disney” and “h for Hogwarts”.

It took a lot of self control to tell them not to go immediately to Gruffalo Ravenclaw Art Attack Victor & Hugo Earthworm Jim.
