Guts or Balls
Guts is when you come home late, after being out with your buddies drinking and your wife is waiting at the door with a broom, and you say “are you still cleaning, or are you getting ready to fly?
Reminds me of the Andy Capp comics :-)
And that reminds me of my college days over 40 years ago...
I lived one semester in the college dorms and we ate in the cafeteria in the building in the middle of the complex. At lunch, along with the usual American eaters at our table, there was an English girl who was always boasting of the contributions made to modern society by the English. Some was accurate, but some was also questionable as to authenticity.
One day we were eating as she was loading her plate in the food line. A conspiracy developed, and since we were all done eating, as she sat down, we all stood up and sang a song to her that everyone in the hall could hear:
King George He had a date,
He came home very late.
He was the King.
Queen Mary paced the floor.
King George came home at four.
She met Him at the door...
God Save the King!
(sung to the same tune as "My Country 'Tis of Thee").
We heard no more about England after that. :-)
Americans! -- They just have no class at all...
