Times change.

I think it's interesting how language changes over time. What something used to mean, it no longer means. Take these for example...

Tea Party: If your little girl says she's going to have a tea party, do you now assume that she's starting a racist political movement?

Taking the piss: Something to do with R.Kelly?

Mission Accomplished: You pretty much sound like a dumbass saying this now, thanks to dubya.

Go to pot: Go to California?

Shell Shocked: Someone after a hunting trip with Dick Cheney.

Stiff Upper Lip: This is probably a procedure you can have done now.

  1. This reminds me of a few winters ago. I was over a friends house, the conversation when like this:
    Friend: "Its cold in here, lets build a fire" (starts to go outside.)
    Father: "You're not building a fire."
    Friend enters the house holding some twigs.
    Father: (shouting)"GET THAT FAGGOT OUT OF HERE!"
    Mother: (irate tone)"Don't say things like that, that is very derogatory."
    Father: (grinning) "Honey, I think you better get the dictionary."
    I am still laughing when the mother returns with a very confused look on her face and reads out loud; "faggot, a bundle of sticks or twigs tied with a string."
