  • Sounds like a podiatrist's problem to me.

  • Oh, that's much better. "Gunion, why didn't I think of that?!" Wait... maybe gunnion to ensure pronunciation doesn't mirror that of union?

  • Or gunion for short? :-P

  • I think if you were saying "God impale me with a fork!" really quickly, that it might come out "Gimfork!" instead. (Or, to be tediously anal about it, "Gompalem'fork!" But that's just silly.)

    Just a thought. I like "G'droponion!" myself. That's short for "God do something faintly unpleasant to me, like drop an onion on my head!"

  • More like, "if I'm lying, may God drive a small pointed object through the entirety of my body, piercing all my vital organs and killing me in a most painful and torturous manner." It's not something you say lightly. ;-)

  • Is that akin to "stick a fork in me, I'm done"?

    July 19, 2007

  • That's bloody brilliant! ;-)

    July 19, 2007

  • I'm going to invent a new one. Gimpork! God impale me with a fork! Just keeping the tradition alive.

  • It's so extreme, I love it. Way to go overboard there, 17th-century cursers!
