Sarcasm

by neilb@uk In reply to Edited out

Nah. I'm done telling. OK, one more time, but I think my point is proven too often,

"You missed my sarcasm"
"I was being sarcastic"

or, two posts up, the perfect example

"just me not recognizign the sarcasim" - closely followed by "I NEED a spell checker".

No. I'd never have guessed.

No verbal clues as to whether I'm amused or sympathetic (irony) or contemptuous (sarcasm). As it happens, I'm amused.

I'm going to work on my obvious shortcomings. I will never again refer to irony as sarcasm. Perhaps, one day, I'll be just like you.

Don't change, Mae

by neilb@uk In reply to Edited out

My pedantry is all I have. You don't need to take that from me, too.

Anyway, it wasn't you who referred to the posts as "sarcasm" and, more to point, Little Ms Stirrer, it was you who brought it to my attention!

Hah! Slight case of troublemaking here, Lady!



When you do come over for your curry, I will likely suggest a Chicken Phal!

Neil, you silly man..

by maecuff In reply to Edited out

I wasn't REALLY going to change, I was being sarcastic. What's chicken phal?

Edited to add: Little Miss Stirrer? Really?? Neil, I have come to expect more from you.

Neil - you can be amused or whatever

I started that post stating I was brain dead that day. Beyond that feel free to continue the hazing JD started. I can take it.

FAO: Little Ms Stirrer

by neilb@uk In reply to Edited out

Of course I can do better but it's too hot...

Chicken Phal is the hottest curry on the standard Brit-Indian menu. It is usually (and traditionally) eaten by macho idiots after ten prints of lager. Watching them eat it is one of the funniest sights to see in a good curry house at 11:30pm Saturday nights.

It is also fed to lippy American tourists - "Oh, no, it's not hot. The sauce is mostly tomatoes".




Standard practice is to put a loo-roll in the freezer for the following day.

Neil, let me get all this straight..

by maecuff In reply to Edited out

so, if it's hot out, you turn into a p*ssy? Okay, got it.

As far as the toilet paper in the freezer..the only thing that comes to mind is..ewwwww...

My husband likes really hot/spicy food. I like it hot, but not so much that it actually hurts. What's the point in that?

OMG Neil!

Did you REALLY just call Mae a "lippy American tourists"? :0

Wow, your a lot braver than I am! That or a lot dumber!

The point of Phals

by neilb@uk In reply to Edited out

is to demonstrate that you are a macho idiot. The trick is to drink lots of lager while eating which, of course, makes the heat worse. I don't like them, myself, too much chili powder makes them taste a bit metallic to me. I only know one person who eats them because he likes them.

Note that I really only feed unexpected phals to people who really tick me off.

So, for now, I would probably suggest a Madras or Jalfrezi (my favourite) for hubby, the Jalfrezi having chunks of green chili, and maybe a Balti for you.

I've got to get you to Brick Lane first, though, and then choose the restaurant. As most are Muslim-run, we get to take our own beer and wine

As for whether I turn into a pvssy when it gets hot, maybe I do.
