So someone wants to give you a carbonated version of a weak lemon drink, and they need you to understand what it is immediately with no ambiguity, but they insist on only using one word or they will instead launch it at your trousers so that everyone believes you have pissed yourself.


Which word will you allow them to use.

Lemonade doesn't need to be fizzy.

If fact apparently no -ade has to be. Carbonation in lemonade etc. by default seems to be a British thing.

But a Brit invented it. Lord Admiral David Effinghole was very thirsty one night and for some reason he had a plethora of lemons, sugar and Carbon Dioxide. The rest is history.

The OED is very cagy on the origin of lemonade. But it seems to come from the French, who use -ade as a jaunty noun suffix for all kinds of things: promenade, charade, colonnade, arcade (which originally featured an arch), or something fun and tasty like marmelade, marinade, remoulade (celeriac slaw), piperade (Basque vegetable dish)... Also for some reason noyade, which means drowning. Nothing to do with fizzy water, anyway.

He’s fought all his life against that pronunciation of his surname.

I think it *should* apply to fizzy drinks only. What was the non-fizzy "ade"?

Carton of lemonade in Sainsbury's. Opened it expecting it to be fizzy, it was not, looked up whether -ade meant fizzy, learned it did not.

The "hero" shot of Buffy at the end of the opening credits for season 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is not actually Buffy, but the Buffybot that Spike got Warren to make for him.

Yes, it was a stroke of luck that they'd cast someone who looked so much like herself.

Enlighten me. I fucking loath it when cunts say it. Is it transitive or intransitive? Is it good, bad, or indifferent? Why is the modern world so SHIT
