I'll see your 19th Century and raise you a 17th Century:

Making the beast with two backs.

Bonus: "joyfully rubbing and frotting their bacon 'gainst one another"

There is probably no way to use this in seriousness or discreetly, but there you have it.

This later became known as the Dutch Oven

FTA: 17. Tiff

A tiff could be a minor argument or falling-out, as we know it. In the 19th century, it was also a term for eating or drinking between meals, or in this case, a quickie.

They had Photoshop in the 19th Century? I did not know that.

12. Lobster kettle

A woman who sleeps with soldiers coming in at port is said to "make a lobster kettle" of herself.


As a Mainer, when I think of a kettle with seafood, I generally think of chowder. I may vomit now.

"In flagrante delicto" is a legal favorite of mine.

This is legal-speak for "caught balls-deep, right farking there, dude!"

If it helps, British redcoats were called lobsters, hence the origin of lobster kettle.

I have never done any of these things. I have, however, farked the shiat out of someone, repeatedly.

Giving a girl a green gown can only happen in the grass.

Alliteration you can fap to? Approves!

In the story of St. George and the Dragon, the dragon reared up from the lake to tower over the saint. "Playing at St. George" casts a woman as the dragon and puts her on top.

Go on...

"Mommy, what's 'amorous congress'"
"Well sweetie, it's when two or more well meaning people get together to go over some issues. After a lot of bragging and posturing in the beginning there is an extended period of shouting and banging on the table. During this period 90% of the bragging proves to be false all parties involved feel deflated and impotent. In the end many people walk out disappointed, but sometimes once in a great while something magical happens."
"Why would people go through so much trouble if they know they will be disappointed in the end?"
"That's because the few times something good happens, it becomes well worth the effort."

The newspapers of the time called it criminal conversation, crim. con. for short. I've had some quick conversations in my time but nothing that required a visit from the constabulary.

So that's where chowder comes from.


A guy went to a brothel and asked for a whore that could take 12 inches. The madam gave him her best one, and the guy went in and started banging the hell out of her, but she started screaming that she couldn't take it. So he goes back to the madam and she gives him another whore. Same thing -- he starts banging her and she starts screaming in pain. He's pissed off now and about to leave when the madam begs him to try one more whore; she assures him this whore will be his best fark ever. So he goes in a dark room and starts banging another chick, and everything's going great; she keeps taking it and he's loving it. Then all of a sudden, she starts foaming at the mouth. The guy gets freaked out and runs out to tell the madam, who brings over the custodian and says "Hey, Frank, the dead one's full again."

We call it playing charades. It's from an Alfred Hitchcock hour episode. And yeah, we do have a kid present in the house. He has no clue what we're talking about in casual conversation, thank heavens.

2. Basket-making

"Those two recently opened a basket-making shop." From a method of making children's stockings, in which knitting the heel is called basket-making. 


Oh... That makes it all so much clearer to me now.
