Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
For reference only:
gobsmacked: (English colloquial or slang expression) - Astounded, astonished, flabbergasted, stunned, deeply surprised. Derives from "gob" (slang term for mouth) and "smacked", as in shocked as though by a sudden and unexpected smack across the face.
Example: Upon entering the manorial bedchamber Earl Geoffrey was gobsmacked to discover his pretty wife engaging in intimate carnal delights of a thoroughly forbidden sort with a large, muscular chimpanzee who was wearing a vest, a tie, and a fedora, but nothing below the waist.
"WHAT is the MEANING of this???!!!!??" he finally spluttered.
"You must be jokin'," said the chimp. "The meaning of this is dead obvious. Yer wife needs a bit more entertainment than you been givin' her lately, Roscoe. Got any more stupid questions ya want answered before I leave?"
