    I stumbled across this in a news article earlier this year which reported:

    [Microsoft prevented] James Woodcock from signing up for its Passport authentication system, telling him that "Your lastname contains a word that has been reserved or is prohibited for .NET Passport registration." His alternative choice, "Harold *****", was happily accepted

    His accepted name rhymed with "banker"! Anyway, the article then pointed to this as perhaps a source of all things profane!
    http://www.viz.co.uk/?%2Fprofanisaurus/profan_index.php
    (Note: click on the Profanisaurus on the menu bar at the top of the page)

    Clicking on the ***** Dip link returns some phrases at random.

    One which really got me laughing out loud was this one:

    hum job n.

    Vegetarian oral *** involving no meat, just two veg.,
    accompanied by simultaneous humming of the musical variety.

    :rotfl:

    There are some corkers in there that I've never heard of.

    Note: Some of the content may offend some of the younger viewers. But as it's Viz, it can't be too bad can it? ;) Enjoy!

    I've got the original Profanisaurus book somewhere. It's a real challenge trying to fit some of the entries into everyday conversation :devil:

    I like "change at Baker Street". Always raises a wry smile.

    The "Profanisaurus REX" contains some of the funniest definitions I have ever heard (and is still worth a buy even if you own the original), it's just a shame that the front cover is missing the same "graphic" as the orginal :)

    My favourite is "Kumikaze attack" - definition is probably not suitable for all ages.

    I have this book in my toilet.

    Always have a quick look and a laugh when curling one out. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    A good one recently was.

    "bacardigan"

    Which is basically the female equivalent of how blokes don't feel the cold after a few pints.


    "Its alright shazza, im just wearing my bacardigan tonight"


    :D

    edit: just found the actual definition:

    bacardigan n.
    Tart fuel version of the beer coat. 'Are you sure you'll be warm enough walking along Whitley Bay seafront during a blizzard in November wearing just those skimpy Kylie shorts and a spangly boob tube?' 'Oh yes. I don't notice the cold when I've got me bacardigan on.'

    I love this book, we have one at work and it always perks us up at 6.30am when finishing a night shift.

    Faves are :

    "Back On Solids"
    "Crafty Butcher"
    "Hand To Gland Combat"
    "Working From Home"

    CLASSIC stuff.
