This is a question Common

Freddy Woo writes, "My wife thinks calling the front room a lounge is common. Worse, a friend of hers recently admonished her daughter for calling a toilet, a toilet. Lavatory darling. It's lavatory."

My own mother refused to let me use the word 'oblong' instead of 'rectangle'. Which is just odd, to be honest.

What stuff do you think is common?

With apologies to Julie Andrews
Big hoopy earrings and slag tags on mothers
Corsas with alloys and lily-assed brovvaz
annoying ring tones, played on the train
These are the things that I treat with disdain.

Tracksuits of velvet and estuary diction,
Low slung jean beltlines and Dan Brown's crap fiction
six inches of bare flesh, twixt thong top and arse,
These are a few of the things that lack class.

Girls in white Kappa and benefit culture,
Jeremy Kyle, the sensationalist vulture,
Closeups of z-listers thigh flab in Zoo,
Oh what is this world now coming to?

Owning a loud gob,
Having a boob-job,
Paid for by your Dad,
I simply cannot bear these commonest things,
I can't be the only one so mad?

But damn you for putting that tune in my head.

Just one thing...
six inches of bare flesh, twixt thong top and arse,
These are a few of the things that lack class.


These two lines don't rhyme...

*clicks anyway*

I speak very posh
when the occasion demands it.

Although my parents are both Londoners, I was raised on the Essex/Suffolk border and have seen the local dialect wiped out by the ever encroaching hideousness that is Estuary English.

As a result, I have an accent as phony as Tony Blair's handshake.

I doubt anything
could be more common (and perhaps a bit perverse) than a dad paying for his daughters boob job.

Well done.

Oh it would be lovely
if this could get into the charts, as a backlash against the god-awful version of Favourite Things made by that 'band' Big Brovaz a few years ago, that name-checked 'drop top kompressors' and 'Gucci dresses' and suchlike!

Fabulous lyrics! *clicks*

First click
I've made on this qotw (and possibly the only one I'll make).

Ms Andrews would love it.

Wow!
In a thick black country, common as muck accent, complete with tattoos and three different coloured babies, 'I luv it, well dun'

Genius.
And, thanks to the anominity of the web - 99% of the posters will claim credit for that in their local this evening, having steered conversation onto common people!

A well deserved click.

Well played that man
Can I pay for your moob job?

Jolly good stuff
I do like how the QOTW evolves from time to time with these little diversions.

Especially when it's such a shit question. Well done in the face of an extremely uninspiring topic.
