Americans don't use that word and its the word BOLLIX with an ix ....hang on a second how come you never mentioned a prize before creedon , we visit this site ever bloody day but you give it to some one who will never visit again , bloody typical , cheap git mutter mutter (walks off ranting to self)

@ "Randy": Sorry Cubaboy, nice try.

@ Former Grunt: Indeed, a shame.

@ Sith: Demand away lad. It won't mean you'll get anywhere.

@ Vaughan: It is Bollix but it's also Bollox. Bollix is a 'created' "new-world" word, a toned down version, as it were, of the traditional Bollox basically for use before the watershed in modern entertainment. Some parents won't chastise children for using Bollix but will (and should) do so should they use Bollox.

Think of the prize given to the 1,000,000th customer of a store who never walked into it before, but old Agnes Braithwaite who'd been coming there all her life was #999,999 and didn't get any. Life sucks.

(It sucks even more for you because you were visitor 2999 yourself when you left that comment last night- I'm not kidding!)

Over here in Blighty I have never heard of Bollix, with an ix. However when I say it, it's definatley BOLLOCKS (said with hearty pronounciation. Bollox, with the x must be text speak. I'm down with the kids!!!
I'm going for the 4000th visitor, eta 17th April...

I forgot about the British spelling. That's a word you don't own, but as the yanks have bastardised most of yours I guess we can give you one of ours.

Oh yes- assuming that The Corps works for the Government. Can the Government stick to finding one problem with the Corps per week? The Generals pass them all onto me as Special Ops is the only unit that can get it done. The latest one was even a Government problem best suited to the CIA :)

you misunderstand me kids , if randy was a real yank he would use the ix ,WE (as cultured europeans)use the ocks version of spelling , all this can be found in my soon to be published book on the correct use of foul language Eats, Shits and leaves

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Er, no we use 'ox. The brits use 'ocks. If you've fundamental flaws like that in your book then you can get somone else to print out the covers :)
