The UKFF Thesaurus

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the amazing Viz's Rogers Thesaurus, this is a thread for things that you have a name for, something that may be everyday, or those moments that just involve you.  Nothing rude though, lets leave that to the aforementioned masters.  Allow me to give you a couple of examples.

 

The Morrissey Minute - This is used to describe the length of time of pure unadulterated joy that I feel between hearing the opening bars of a Smiths or Morrissey song, before being brought thunderously back down to earth by remembering what an absolute helmet Morrissey is.

The Pay Zonday  -  The movement made of an innocuous look away, but doing it enough so that it's noticed, usually made in a restaurant by a waiter when you put your PIN into the card reader.  Named after internet yesteryear star and The Fash Gang collaborator Tay Zonday, who turns away from the mic to breathe.

 

Any entries I consider good will be added* to the opening post. 

 

(* They probably won't)

The Christmas Gouch - that bit between Christmas and New Year when you're just bumming around enjoying the time off and eating ungodly amounts of food. 

I'd have thought "Gooch" might have been more appropriate. Merry Perineum!!

My 5 year old daughter asked me last week if she could watch the ‚Äúterrible teeth programme‚ÄĚ. After much questioning I wasn‚Äôt any the wiser as to what programme she was talking about.¬†

Earlier today, the penny dropped when we were both sat in front of the TV and an advert for tomorrow’s Jeremy Kyle came on.

‚ÄúThe terrible teeth programme‚ÄĚ is a better description for Jeremy Kyle than I could ever have come up with. And I‚Äôm now disappointed in myself for not guessing it at the time.¬†

For anyone interested in the answer to the original question. No, she cannot watch the terrible teeth programme!

I would like to nominate Terrible Teeth Programme by MrK, for Jeremy Kyle, Judge Rinder and other horrible daytime television shows populated by people with knackered gnashers.

Steptoeing/a Steptoe - when playing Scrabble and laying words like bum, wee, or toilet, in reference to this close-up in an episode of Steptoe and Son:

By my expert reckoning, VIBRATORS down the bottom could only have been laid next to a pre-existing TORS, so would not have been as high scoring as it looks, neither hitting the treble, nor getting the 50 point bonus for using all 7 letters.

Might be placed around "or" which would get the 50 pt bonus. I'm more concerned that they've allowed a misspelling of privet

Could we call that a Kyle Smile perhaps? I'm going to submit one that goes the other way.  

Olivers Army - A collective term for usually middle class people who laugh sneeringly at the poor and the worst off in society.  They laugh at their food, clothes, appearances on the aforementioned shows, and appearance in general because they think that everyone has the same opportunities in life that their privileged backgrounds gave them and that people on council estates should jolly well pull their socks up and work harder and be more like them.
