    Whatever.. Let's just be thankful that the cyber censor has only the narrowest grasp of the richness and diversity of expression available to us in these isles.

    Pòg mo thòin

    or in Manx Gaelic: Paag my hoyn

    In Irish: Póg ma thoin or poag mah hone

    This is where the Pogues got their name, courtesy of Shane MacGowan, "the Sid Vicious who never died"


    'A messy risk' is an anagram of 'kiss my arse'


    I've got the foremans' job at last.
    I'm out of work and on the dole,
    You can stuff the red flag up your hole.
    The working class can kiss my arse,
    I've got the foremans' job at last.

    'Twas on Gibraltors rocks so fair,
    I saw a maiden lying there,
    And as she lay in sweet repose,
    A puff of wind blew up her clothes.
    The working class can kiss my arse,
    I've got the foremans' job at last.

    A sailor who was passing by,
    Tipped his hat and winked his eye,
    And then he saw to his despair,
    She had the red flag flying there.
    The working class can kiss my arse,
    I've got the foremans' job at last.

    SASSENACH , adj., n. Also Sassanoch, -enagh, Sasennach, -unnach; the form in the 1706 quot. represents the Gael.pl. Sasunnaich. English, English-speaking, formerly also applied to the Lowlanders of Scotland; as a n., an Englishman or -woman. The word was orig. put in the mouths only of Highlanders but is now in somewhat jocular use throughout Scotland. [ˈsɑsənəx]
    *Sc. 1706 Letters from E.C. to E.W. Concerning the Union 6:
    We call them Sassanich, in Latin Saxi or Saxoni.
    *Sc. 1737 J. Drummond Memoirs Locheill (1842) 113:
    The English (or “Sassanoch”, that is, Saxons, as they call them in their language).
    *Sc. 1771 Smollett Humphrey Clinker, Melford to Phillips (3 Sept.):
    The Highlanders have no other name for the people of the Low country, but Sassenagh, or Saxons.
    *Sc. 1814 Scott Waverley xviii.:
    He that lifts a drove from a Sassenach laird, is a gentleman-drover.
    *Per. 1857 J. Stewart Sketches 52:
    The Sass’nachs braw be our fock.
    *Sc. 1922 P. Macgillivray Bog Myrtle 13:
    Up in the North where the Gael should be Lord, The heel of the Sasunnach turns.
    *Sc. 1964 Glasgow Herald (25 March) 8:
    The rapacious, ambitious, selfish, or indifferent Scot, who, since the Clearances, has been much more potent than the wicked Sasennach in retarding the social and economic growth of Scotland.
    [Gael. sasunnach, Saxon, English, an Englishman, an English-speaking Lowlander of Scotland, the Scots and English languages not being differentiated in Gael.]
