Are you heteroflexible?

Just when you think you've mastered your mother tongue, they go and add some words to it. I have just read a story from Reuters advising of this years proposed additions to the Collins English Dictionary, one of which is heteroflexible. This is defined as someone who is usually, but not always, heterosexual....

They have also added Ingerland, which arose from a football (soccer) terrace chant to solve the problem of the missing third syllable in England.

Others are "bouncebackability", "go commando" and "supersize".

My favourite is "back, sack and crack". This is defined as a (cosmetic depilation of) the back, scrotum and the area between the buttocks, apparently a beauty parlour waxing procedure made famous by David Beckham. You have got to be kidding me! The isn't anything on this earth that would make me let someone pour hot wax on my nuts and then rip the hair out. It'd be bad enough to shave the little buggers, but yanking out my fur just ain't never gonna happen. Beckham, you are a braver man than I.


  1. I attended the birth of my nephew. The anaethetist who was administering the epidural was hilarious and somehow the conversation ended up being about back, crack and sack waxes.

    I think only the anaethetist and I were laughing actually.

  2. Must have been some good drugs administered all round. I can only think of crying when I think of a sack-wax...

  3. I lost a dubious bet to my wife last year that gives me 2 years to have a 'back, sack and crack' done... never bet when you have been drinking!
