Helen BS: Bah! Humbuggers! (42) RE: BS: Bah! Humbuggers! 07 Dec 19


I would count myself as a Hum-Bugger, and only a couple of days ago I wore my Christmas t-shirt. I usually avoid movie-branded clothing but this one has a very large picture of a green Grinch sitting on a red chair with the caption "Merry Whatever" below it.

There are so many bugger-related expressions in Oz that I wouldn't know where to start, but it includes most of the ones already quoted here.

When I was still working I emailed myself a copy of our session tunes list so that I could print out the page at work because our home printer was playing up. Working for a state government department meant not being able to write rude words in emails, but I didn't realise that the system also scanned attached documents until the email was blocked and I was given a system warning in full nanny-state, pursed lips, bureaucratic style.

I was confused until I looked through the list of over a hundred tunes and found this one:

God Bless You and Bugger Me

I promptly changed the word "bugger" to "bu66er", sent the email and then changed the word back before printing it at work.
