    I wore that T shirt on a non school uniform day in 1993 and no one batted an eyelid (I was 28, no I was 13). I wouldn’t wear it now because people seem to have become over sensitive to shit like this.

    We used to be able to take videos to school, and they’d be played on the TV up in the corner of the refectory at dinnertime. Many a “Twat It!” was heard when I took My Red Dwarf III Byte 1 video in. Along with “What a bastard!”
    No problems at my school.

    The word Twat seems to taken on the American meaning these days. I always knew Twat as a very mild swear word. Just a slightly ruder version of Twit. Dammit even my parents said it around me at a very young age.

    And in the context of that line, it’s even less rude isn’t it? Twatting someone means hitting them of course!

    What is wrong with people…

    Well, someone clearly didn’t listen to my excellent news roundup on the latest DwarfCast.

    I grew up knowing it was a rude slang word for a little girl’s anatomy. I had adult women in my family refer to it as “twat” and breasts as “titties” at a young age. Oddly, that seemed to stop altogether by the time I was an adolescent. I don’t know if it was because they didn’t think the usage would matter around little kids, or if it was some kind of culture shift. Use of the words nowadays is considered crude and vulgar in general. What I think is odd is how the word fanny is considered a cute, polite way of referring to a woman’s butt here, but it’s a big no-no on the other side of the pond and Australia.

    Depends on the individual, I reckon

    It doesn’t mean a pregnant fish then?
