Scrump BS: Much ado about nuttin' (44) RE: BS: Much ado about nuttin' 15 Mar 07

I read the thread title with disgust and disbelief. "Nutting" is IRA slang for killing someone (a tout) by firing a bullet in his head (nut) from close by. Maybe I should not read so many books about Northern Ireland.

There are two other (perhaps less violent) meanings of the term, Wolfgang:

- butting someone in the face with your head

- kicking someone in the nuts (i.e. testicles)

But the song "I Got Plenty Of Nuttin'" (='Nothing') was in Gershwin's Porgy & Bess, so that's a more innocent meaning that I guess was intended by beardedbruce.
