    cock up

    I'm not sure I've ever heard this one, but it's defined as ''a mistake.''

    Used to be used frequently in England many years ago but like most dirty sayings overuse diluted its shock effect so the C word was replaced with the F word

    Which having just checked the origin would be out of line

    cock-up
    A shambles. Sounds vulgar, but may not be; it may be a grouse shooting term. Customarily, shooters employ beaters to disturb birds on the ground and drive them into the air towards the guns. Normally one only shoots grouse hens, so if the beaters were by mistake to put up a grouse cock, they would warn the guns not to shoot by shouting "Don't shoot! It's a cock up!"

    https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www...w.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Cock-Up

    I did briefly think it might have been rude from where I thought it might have originated from

    A girl agrees to sex. Part way through she is thinking "This is a mistake and now I have a cock up"

    My mistake

    Interesting! Eff up, I've heard of. Sadly, sometimes use.

    I love genuine ginger ale. Most people I know do not know anything but Canada Dry type soda "ginger ale". I gave a friend 1 called Two Gingers & 1 made by a company named Cock And Bull. Later among a group of people, I asked whether he liked them & which he liked better. Several people were offended because I said Cock And Bull.
