"Blighty" is a British English slang term for Britain or often specifically England. It was first used during the Boer War, though it was not until World War I that the word spread widely.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word derives from "bilayati", a regional variant of the Urdu word "vilayati", meaning "foreign", "British", "English" or "European." In India, vilayati came to be known as an adjective meaning European, and specifically English or British.
Ken are you allowed to circumvent FCC regulation like an offshore pirate DJ, saying stuff like 'knickers', 'bollocks' or 'naughty bits' or are we limited to the usual fucking tame shit prescribed by the assholes at the righteous Fucking Clown Cornhole Commission? Just checking.
zoned, they are on the metric system there, today is Milliday
I read on one of the local tabloids last Sunday that a unidentified man from the USA made a down payment to buy a big old Victorian house near the Buckingham Palace. Funny thing is the paid the rest just 32 hours later. Did you read anything about it, Ken?
@Vicki, this means you're officially the station manager now. Quick, change the schedule while you still can! Who are you going to promote from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m.? Don't think about it, just tell us now.
Quick! Someone tell Ken saying 'Asshole' over the air while in the UK gets you a fine of £650,000!
I may be wrong, but I'm not sure that "boner" is understood to mean the same thing by folks in Birmingham as it is in Jersey City... He may have just made a slightly mystifying (in UK) speech about a "boner" getting a TV station fined...
I, for one, welcome our new Station Mgr Ken overlord..er..overlady.
Thank goodness for FB! Only way I knew Ken was on!
@Sem: see: it gets tricky- "Jolly Roger" can mean a lot of things. "boner" strictly translates only as "rampant pecker" Or: "A Pecker Rampant" if you want it to sound more like the title of a romance novel.
English accent coming from WFMU. Makes it sound like a cultural, intellectual radio station, isn't?
Air guitar for the blind is giving me a jolly roger
