A quote from Liza of Lambeth, W. Somerset Maugham's first novel:
"Grind away, old cock!"
Now mind you, the sentence above was uttered by a female character to a musician - but she was asking him to play the organ grinder.
Makes you wonder how the English language has evolved, and why.
Speaking of which, I am getting a terrible reputation for language (LOL) - I got this late b.day gag gift from Darth Weasel and his wife:
Tomorrow is my boss's b.day, and in his card, I wrote, "It is great to work for someone I respect, who cares so much about our mission - and who doesn't mind that I say "fuck."
Here is his cake - cross your fingers that he doesn't find out about the surprise party until the first guest walks in!
