Re: The First World Problem Thread

Spent two hours on Saturday watching CNN in the hope of seeing winds, rain and generally to satisfy the need to learn about hurricane effects from the safety of my home, but instead watched two wind-slapped clowns describing things in their words on a split screen... Should have stayed in bed and listened to the radio then...

What effect are you expecting? Is this some sort of diet based on your horns?

The advantage of a fat stomach is you can close drawers with it, push the lawnmower & warm your hands up under the overhang when it's cold.

Please don't follow me around with that expression - I'll have nightmares.

Although, the Swiss German word for all the stuff neddy is able to do actually IS schtupsen. ROFL.

I'm trying to deposit the term with someone else - otherwise it's going to cost me some of my own precious sleep.

Sorry. Does google put us between Norway and Finnland maybe?

You'll find the "high-German" version: stupsen.
