TWTD Glossary 22:08 - Mar 12 with 3551 viewsmonytowbray

Was just thinking after referencing Burnley earlier that happened YEARS ago with a former poster. I expect some posters newer here must get confused often.

So, let’s say someone needed to study TWTD’s history for a TV special, and you had to summarise a TWTD exclusive saying or contextual quirk in relation to it’s origin/meaning, what would you say?

The truth is not the midpoint between a fact and a lie.

Lucan's train journey - you really had to be on the forum as that one unfolded though. Perhaps we could have one of those crime scene recreations based on it one day.

Poll: Do we really need two polls about how many points we get in the next five games?

Free Audi - something which is definitely 100% legit.

Some posters would demand to see evidence, and bully you until you showed it or backed down.

I'm sure we all have our fingers crossed - a way in which to express possibly ambivalent feelings, possibly with a view to outraging the hard of thinking.

The original post was, IIRC:

Is Haribo still ever mentioned or am I wide of the mark with that one?

I only saw it in passing but it seemed quite a key topic at one point.

Mopeds home from northern away days?

Probably going off the topic of glossary now though.

I Googled 'Context justifying prejudice' and am now thoroughly confused, I can't even work out if it is the context that tries to justify the prejudice or the prejudice that seeks to justify the context.

To get 'Joe Royle'd' - To have one's wedding ruined by external influences

To get RKD'd - To be unmercifully trolled on social media before finding out it's a member of your own family doing the damage.

No idea when I began here, was a very long time ago. Previously known as Spirit_of_81. Love cheese, hate the colour of it, this is why it requires some blue in it.

Fish puns - why do we do it? Why? You get sucked in but there is no enjoyment in all these tedious word associations; however it just takes one and then they are all over the plaice.
