    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

    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.

    I wonder how many people can mount a cogent argument without the Gargle?

    I Googled it. It only talked about cogent arguments, so I took out "cogent" and than it only talked about Google. So I don't know.

    Yep.

    And after a generation of "I don't knows" comes up, we have the Idiocracy.

    Hmm.

    I hit the wrong reply button.

    We all have different abilities. When someone comes across something they do not know about, it is very good that they look it up.

    {something} -splaining.

    Seems to have started out as "mansplaining", but it's taken an even more useful turn:

    "Boggety". To be overly excited about something. "I got all boggety watching Captain Marvel and had to leave."
