But, but I don't know any swear words??

But I'd be happy to join a thread with no berating, bellowing or bellicose behaviour allowed!

Minerva... that was funny... "va te faire cuire un oeuf", we say that in Quebec also; we also say "Va chez l'bonhomme!"
What on earth does "Fugly" mean??

Thanks Moonray! Excellent initiative... here's an expression I like in French:
"faire la java" - to party all night
"va te faire cuire un oeuf" (could come in useful on the forum one of these days...)- a more polite way of saying.. F*** off...
And I love the word FUGLY in English.
