Re: Paper thing with a handle

I would call it a banner or a placard.

By the way, could you guys please tell me what trolley means by "indoor or outdoor plumbing?"
Trolley was being rude Steven. It is all to do with sitting or being able to stand for a certain function. :D

Re: Sonogram

You both knew where she had been, so "Did they tell you whether it is a boy or a girl?" would be enough.

Re: can't usually

To me they say the same things. Although I have to say that your second options don't feel right.

Re: don't know a man

They can indeed. That is why a native speaker would never use them.

Re: She Loves You

I met a man who told me a very sad story. Apparently he had a paper shop that was quite successful but one day it blew away. Then his wife who had a shop selling brassieres went bust.
OK. I'll stop now.

She Loves You

I met a bloke in the pub who told me that he is a Beatles fan. He eats, drinks and breathes the Beatles, he plays their music constantly, the walls of all the rooms in his house are covered with posters and he has a copy of every record they ever made except one. I think he needs Help.

Verbing isn't always bad. It is usually painful. This one is abdominal.

Re: drag / in drag / drag queen

Welcome Rey. The word "fag" in the UK refers to a cigarette not a gay man, so I have to say that your assumption is unlikely.

Re: Peachy

When I was a kid, "coloured" covered a multitude, and did it effectively,
In the same way that "blonde" or"bald did.
