This Week's Meaningless Topic (#42) (June 26)

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Thanks to all who chimed in to suggest we continue this feature. Special thanks to those who suggested ideas for future topics. I'm keeping a file. In tribute to those clever idea-guys, we offer this week's meaningless topic inspired by their suggestions..


THIS WEEK'S MEANINGLESS TOPIC: The following sentences are written in standard English. How would you rewrite them using using phrases and words unique to your part of the world? For example -- "He got it done" = (in USA Pacific Northwest) "He carried it off."

     1. That young man lacks common sense.

     2. That young woman is strikingly beautiful.

     3. That fellow eats enthusiastically.

     4. He was cheated in his purchase.

     5. She certainly likes to talk excessively.

     6. The gentleman commenting on the Orbx Forum is remarkably handsome.

     7. The old gentleman writing the Meaningless Topics is not firing on all cylinders.
