Ask Arabella

Dear Ms Sock

In the wake of the Wossell Bwand and Jonathan Wuss scandal the BBC appears to have tightened up their policy on smut.

This includes the deletion of a post on their Gardening Message Boards previously entitled

"Who's been pinching my fat balls?"

not everyone knew the answer to this was squizzles.

Can we hope that this same policy will make Bill Oddie disappear from our screens when he next mentions blue tits?

Yours
K Humble

Arabella says: I am sorry there is no-one here to answer your question at the moment, the Sock is out of the country.

I don't think that letter's from Kate Humble at all - it doesn't say fantastic anywhere...

What are we gonnnna doooo without arabella smut oops I mean sock

my word id is pelegal. what does it mean?

James said...

Pelegal is a lifestyle choice meaning that no longer is it necessary to relive oneself in the Raffia department at Hobbycraft. Instead one chooses to use the available facilities wheresoever they may be.

My verification choice is Bullso. That may well be very true.

Yolanda Elizabet said...

My word id is impaili, sounds very painful, don't you think? James' is rather apt. ;-)

Re the whole Woss and whatshisface thingy, rather a storm in a teacup, don't you think? On occasion I've heard Woss say much worse things to people on telly.

I like it that with word id we now get almost words.

James said...

This time mine is (an I exaggerate not a jot) Schet...
It is probably Dutch for something unsavoury.
Got to go and watch Strictly now.
Forward, Side, together. Forward,Side Together....

I don't think Arabella would appreciate being associated with smut -she is bigger than that!

I had "clorke" which is clunky and lumpy, two of Craig Revel -wotsit's favourite words -which he'd never apply to you, James, come the day!

Juliet said...

I have grightl, which is obviously a kind of illuminated belt.

In the absence of Arabella, can I ask you other bloggers, do you find the word verification means you don't get spam comments? - and if you don't use it, do you get them then? Am trying to decide whether to turn it off - and if so whether to mod comments instead - as I find some of the words so hard to read they've put me off commenting on blogs in the past.

I think we should all petition the Beeb to get James on Stictly, I'm sure they would give him a twinkly star on his teeth or failing that a twinkly blue one on his eyes like they do on X Factor! My word is papho - sounds like a philosopher!

VP said...

I got urrinall on here the other day, but because I'd mentioned two words already in my comments, I thought I'd leave it be for a while. But seeing everyone else is mentioning theirs now, I couldn't resist joining in.

The current 'word's' doningl BTW.

I also got ifuckdt many moons ago - I laughed so much, I actually photographed my PC and posted about it. I really must get out more...

Juliet said...

My current word is bolots. I suspect that of being a rude word to do with the American election, but I shall leave the precise definition to your imaginations.

I don't watch Strictly - can we petition the other side to get James dancing on ice instead?

jro said...

In which case, my word of 'wortif' is rather apt...

Pork Chop said...

Hmmm, my word id is unhaff. I would if I knew what haff was. If I've haffed inadvertantly, I do apologise, obviously too many veggies with my dinner yesterday.

My word verification is 'flowsi', which I'm sure James would very much be, when dressed in sequins and ruffs.

Do you think we can surprise Arabella with a huge plethora of inane comments for her to wade through on her return?

Crusty Bedsocks said...

Brilliant idea HM! :o)

I'm not sure that James would look good in a ruff but I can see him in a hat and cape doing the Pasa Doble! I wonder who he would like to be his partner???

My word is rillecep - sounds like a prescription drug!!!

Dishwasher Crab said...

I remember someone (Billy Connelly probably) once saying that Dunfermline sounded like a prescription drug - now I can't listen to the football results without thinking about ointments for unsavoury complaints.

Today my verification word is micatma, which is very like the old and not very good Ma-hat ma-coat joke.

Poor Arabella will be starting to recover from her jetlag by now, then she'll read all this drivel and go all woozy again. Sorry mate!

VP said...

As everyone seems to like playing this game - may I point out that there's a new version of The Uxbridge English Dictionary out?

The 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue' team make 'alternative' word definitions an art form.

My word's loger - which is what happens when a plank of wood comes to stay - for a very long time.

And yes, I think we should go for the world record of the most number of comments left for a post. We could also go for the most number of comments that have absolutely nothing to do with the original post!

jro said...

As my word verification for today is 'tesetoo', I'm taking it as a sign that, completely against my will of course, I really do have to agree that arabella should receive lots of posts. I'm sure she will be very happy. :-)

Crusty Bedsocks said...

My word is Mariz - possibly a nice name for a sexy Spanish senorita!

Pork Chop said...

My word for today is dever. Now I'm not sure whether this is pronounced like the word diva or whether its more like ever with a d on the front or whether the emphasis is on the de like the name de Vere. Perhaps this means that I should launch a singing career under the name of De Vere which will last a long time....

Just orf to practice my scales!

HappyMouffetard said...

The 'knitymen' that I just had as a verification may relate to the knitted Sock family. Or perhaps an allusion to the Clangers.

Are the Sock and the Clangers related? The truth must out!

Yes they are related HM and so is Lamb Chop (and her side kick Shari Lewis) but the family never talk about Lamb Chop - terrible wrong doings there were! ooer!

My word is aglippy - perhaps an Australian word for a faux pas?

VP said...

Hi Arabella - amongst all the WV talk, I come bearing a gift to welcome you home!

I've awarded you the order of the Kreativ Blogger for your Scents & Sustainability series.

By the time you get back linking via VP will not get you to my original post of course, so you can find it here

And delightfully, your WV's saying wootle, which I hope you're doing lots of whilst you're Down Under ;)
