Not sure if this will display:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Ike:

@David in London, I can't stop repeating this insane recent Times UK headline: "Only a plonker would call time on sozzled bonking". Is that unusual? And is that really about drunken sex? And is there really anybody trying to stop drunken sex? What the hell is this Rupert Murdoch rag blabbering about? Any idea? It's behind a paywall and I'm not giving Rupert my money, so maybe I'll never know.

It's unicode U+1F6CE, in any case.
Avatar 12:15pm βrian:

Sylvie, is there such a thing as a pinardeur?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Michael 98145:

this would make a great national anthem
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm David (in London):

Ike, well done, you made me spurt tea out of my nose with that comment. Was that in The Times? My, how the mighty Thunderer has fallen. Being a Murdoch enemy, I would not even pick up a paper copy I saw lying about, so I don't know, but it sounds more like something from The Sun (his other paper). Sheesh. It's not something you would have seen in the days of Harold Evans, that's for damn sure. Regarding the content, I'm not sure anyone has quite yet been policing drunken bonking, but I will let you know if I hear anything.
Avatar 12:20pm Mary Wing:

Howdy Phillippe, Michael 98145, and Ken!

I didn't see the thing, Brian, but Le Google tells me that code is a bellhop bell, which is KEWL!

Would Ike or David translate "Only a plonker would call time on sozzled bonking" for me? :-)
Avatar 12:20pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@ βrian are you asking me if the word pinardeur exist in French? Not to my knowledge
Avatar 12:21pm βrian :

Can a bell hop?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Phillippe Bastille:

"Only a plonker would call time on sozzled bonking" sounds like an infraction of the unwritten snooker rules.

Yeah, I was looking for an equivalent of plonker ...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm David (in London):

Mary, my translation: "Only someone with impaired mental faculties would prevent inebriated people from fornicating."
Avatar 12:24pm Mary Wing:

I thought plonker was a euphemism for condom?
Avatar 12:24pm Mary Wing:

Which would make it more like a safe-sex warning, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Phillippe Bastille:

@DiL I know of several happy marriages that resulted from such fornication. Many more divorces, however.

Or maybe "CC" or "CLE".
  12:27pm Listener Robert:

Darn, I meant "CKE".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Ike:

@David@12:18, ROTFL, I also nearly splurted jasmine green tea out of my nose at YOUR comment, esp., "My, how the mighty Thunderer has fallen." And @12:23, that's what I thought it meant, but I wanted to be sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Michael 98145:

Now definitely "CK".

Avatar 12:30pm Mary Wing:

Hi Robert! What are all those letters about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm David (in London):

Ike / Michael - Are either of you familiar with the English writer Dennis Potter? I really don't know how well-known he is in the States. Sadly he died of cancer in the mid-90s, and during his last ever TV interview he revealed that, being a passionate Murdoch hater, he had called his cancer Rupert. It was a priceless moment of TV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Ike:

Wow! That's hilarious. I've heard of Dennis Potter but I'm not familiar with his work. He was legendary among some people I've talked to.
  12:34pm KWilde:

Heh!
Avatar 12:35pm Listening Out There:

@David: I'm a big Dennis Potter fan. Watched the Singing Detective 2-3 times... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm David (in London):

Ike, it's probably a lazy comparison (but not entirely wrong either) to call him 'the English David Lynch'. In fact they were due to collaborate once, but sadly it didn't actually happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm David (in London):

Listening Out There - Oh yeah, that's gotta be his masterpiece. It gets better and weirder every time I watch it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Hubig Me as well (I think -- I was pretty sozzled when we met...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Ike:

@Mary@12:24, "plonker" here is just a general moron or idiot if I'm not mistaken. I just wonder, in this context, if the plonker is a lawmaker, or someone petitioning a lawmaker, or if the columnist is complaining that someone wouldn't have sex with her when one or both of them was plastered. Which seems like a strange premise for a column in a once-high-minded (and snooty?) paper. In any case, the headline caused a mild stir on Twitter for being one of the most ridiculous British sentences ever written.
  12:41pm βrian:

Did plonker evolve from something akin to a souse?
Avatar 12:42pm Mary Wing:

It's no "Headless Body Found In Topless Bar" though, heh. That was a legendary headline.
Avatar 12:42pm Mary Wing:

Hiya KWilde and Listening Out There! Happy October!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm David (in London):

'Plonker' was popularised by a character called Del Boy in a TV comedy called Only Fools and Horses ("Rodney, you plonker" became something of a catch-phrase). As a show it was massive. Del Boy was a likeable grifter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm David (in London):

Mary, thanks. I think 'Legless in the Topless Bar' will be the title of my new autobiography.
  12:48pm βrian:

OED:
Origin: Apparently formed within English, by derivation. Etymons: plonk v., -er suffix1.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Handy - Some years ago, I emailed Liz Berg about the idea for commenters to get birthday cake icons by their names.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Ike:

I don't know if I can stomach it. People seem to be under the misapprehension that Kamala Harris will completely dismantle VP Christian Mannequin. He is an experienced AM talk radio host, an oozing, oleaginous creature, so he'll lie like a very smooth and totally unruffled plastic carpet. (I was going to say "lie like a smooth dog" but that'd be a grave insult to canines.)

Ken, did Liz Berg ever reply to that email? I think a cake icon would be cool but maybe it needs a lot of coding to enable it? Maybe you would need to enter your birthday so it can be automatically uploaded on the day?

One of my friends uses Lyft and he was actually arguing with the driver about politics in the middle of the trip. I was sure we were going to end up in the middle of a bridge somewhere.

I uber from airports to hotels. I get a variety of drivers, mostly OK. I generally give off a "don't f*ck with me" vibe, as a matter of principle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Carmichael:

Ha ha, Sylvia. Nice surprise, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Handy Haversack:

No smartphone. No Uber. I take (took, alas) cabs and car services, though.

This Otoboke Beaver reminds me a lot of CHAI. Ever heard them @Mary?
Avatar 2:40pm TDK60:

Yeah Handy, I pretty much use limos (car service) when I have to. Mostly, subway trains.
Avatar 2:40pm Mary Wing:

Funny you should mention CHAI, pantz...

@Carmichael the good kind!

Waddya know! I must have that ESP the kids have been raving about.

I like this CHAI, which is nice because 21st century pop hasn't been working for me so far.

If a cab driver in London hasn’t taken The Knowledge, then they’ll get no shekels from me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Handy Haversack:

@TDK60, the past several years, I would avoid taxis from Manhattan at almost any cost. The subway was almost invariably faster. The traffic, thanks to Uber, had gotten so derangedly awful that even, say, laden down with all the gear after a softball game, I'd rather hump it to the subway and walk over the Pulaski than sit in a taxi for an hour and a half trying to get across 57th St.

CHAI was good, but *specifically* said more cake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Handy Haversack:

David, which reminds me! I keep meaning to ask you whether you have read The Kraken, by China Miéville. Some very, very good Londonism.
Avatar 2:46pm βrian:

But ... I thought everybody had moved out of NYC!
Avatar 2:48pm Mary Wing:

The delivery bikes and Uber cars would lead you to believe otherwise.

That sounds like a euphemism, but yuck.
  2:49pm David in London:

Handy, I’m a big fan of his work (really love The City and The City), but that’s not one I’ve read. I’ll add it to the list.
Avatar 2:50pm TDK60:

I hear ya, Handy. I hate sitting in traffic. Cabs run up a bill. I hate getting stuck in the suway too. I always take a book or magazine.
Avatar 2:51pm TDK60:

May, I've always loved the back and forth between a major and minor chord, like this.

Thanks, Mary. See you ding-a-lings around.

[Mary, that is.]
Avatar 2:52pm Mary Wing:

Me too, TDK60, so good.
  2:53pm David in London:

Can’t believe that three hours has passed. Can you do another three please Mary?
Thanks for a great show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm pantz:

Love China Mieville. His work is so very different than other sci-fi/fantasy I've read. I sometimes feel like I've been taking hallucinogens after reading him.
Avatar 2:54pm Mary Wing:

I'll try to catch your gig tonight, David, what was the station again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Handy Haversack:

Mary, thanks so much -- for the tunes and the kind words!

Great show! Lots of zip -- and pizzazz!

Be well, Wingnuts!

I think I have read all Miéville's fiction. And Salvage, a communist journal of politics, culture, and art that he is a founding editor of is the only thing I actually subscribe to.
  2:56pm David in London:

Mary, KLFM.org. Don’t worry if you can’t. I’ll send it to you later anyway.
