I dunno why I even brought it up to be honest. :D


As you said, it goes by pronunciation, not spelling. You asked why is it 'an hour' as a tricky question for us? Even a thick painter could answer that!

You wouldn't have got it if I hadn't told you the answer! :P You're just trying to act all clever now.

Xmas in the morning, birthday in the evening.

That's how I roll on the 25th.

Fine then. There's only one way to settle this!

No but that was the problem! :lol: It's like the one thing that's a bugger to find the answer for on the internet (Well it took me a while anyway). I can't think of a question that you can't just copy and paste into google and get the answer in like a second.

Well, apart from, what flavour where the Doritos that first arrived in England that had the purple packet? Cos I can't remember and can't find the answer to that anywhere either. Bastard.

Nope, I can't think of anything. I'll try though.

It depends on what the first letter is if you spell it phonetically.

An hour, an honour, can't think of any more. Grammar sucks, everything makes sense but you have to take into account about a gillion things.

Pfft, English is easy because Redcoats are thick.

Irish is a lovely, complicated, flowing language!

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.

I can't find the Christmas thread? Is the link broke? I keep getting directed to a grammar topic.

Christmas is the best time of the year for me. Although the worst time of the year financially seeing as my car insurance is due middle of Dec, I have to wait 6 weeks for my next payday after Decs, my ladies birthday is on the 14th of JAn, New year Eves party, Christmas parties etc etc. It cripples me :cry:

However I love putting smiles on peoples faces.

I'm after spending €7,000 on a new bathroom, so people can f**k off wanting presents off me this year!
