comment BrEng: “pull your finger out”, “cock up” and “stuff it” What do they mean?
my arse on the line, so you better pull your finger out i.e. the direct use of the phrase (pull your finger out / work harder) and the rude version (pull your finger out of my arse)...euphemism

You do realise these are all being used as euphemisms and the joke is the duel meaning?

comment Usage of “fanny” as verb
Also: no one would ever say I met a fanny last night. They would say I met a dick last night. Fanny is never used as a derogatory term for a person, where as dick is.

comment Usage of “fanny” as verb
Also: someone who is a Fanny is a coward. Stop being such a fanny. Also Fanny is not a common name in the UK any more, not for the under 60s anyway.

comment Source of the term Munter (unattractive person)
So the hitch pre-dates the slang and also is not as old as I thought it was, interesting, can't help but feel the slang is inspired by the knot. There was a big climbing fraternity in English universities about this period, that said it could be coincidental.

@Kris, there are plenty of German words in use in the English language (Schadenfreude). So the fact that the Hitch is German has no relevance as far as I can tell. What's WP?

comment Difference between “my” an “my own”
I'd say that second sentence should be Only mine own condemnation harms me.

comment What is a term for someone who has never left their home region?
My issue was that the question states "Specifically, someone who has never experienced other places". Calling someone inbred would not be good. With the edit I think it makes better sense.

If my Doctor used the term inbred I'd probably report them to the medical council. This is very derogatory and implies they've had sex with a member of their own family?!
