Here's the explanation:

"While you let that title sink in, it should be noted that this 114-page Thai cookbook, published by Urban Neighbours of Hope, isn’t actually a guide to scatological cuisine, but rather a comprehensive handbook for cooking with crab (“poo” is Thai for crab, as well as the author’s arguably unfortunate nickname)."

I figured that was it, but fun to let the imagination.......lol.

Kind of like fanny and willie mean TOTALLY different things in England than they do in Texas.....as I found out when I lived there.

yup.......shag as well.... lmao Got myself in trouble in London with that one. Embarassed

Similar to Country and Western style dancing in Texas, shagging in South Carolina is a dance that EVERYONE does....kind of a jitterbug style dance to "Beach Music" which is the music of the primarily black groups of the sixties. My husband is very good at it. I'll....ummmm.....leave it at that in deference to our UK and Aussie members.

Aussies dont really use shag in the way the british do, we call water birds "shags" (usually cormorants get called that. Have welsh friends, they were over the other day and he was using the word Shag in the the british way, funny but I was thinking about it that night and how aussies dont really use it. So many words have different connotations in different countries LOL

Helen, that is funny. Kids will be hearing someone say shag and think the person should get yelled at for saying a naughty word.

Here we have a restaurant with a Southwestern flare called "Chi Chi's". We had some friends visit from Mexico who thought that was an odd name for a restaurant given that chi chi's is slang for boobs in Mexico.

LOL....yep! Remember that one too. I taught high school English in a small West Texas town called Andrews when we were first married. Many of the kids out there were Hispanic. Since I taught English, I could require them to speak only English in my classroom, but made sure I knew ALL the cuss and off color words in Spanish....just to make sure I didn't hear someone call me something in the hallway etc. LOL....for the most part, they were pretty nice kids tho...not much trouble.

I remember when bob first moved here, it was high summer and he was working outside, came in all red in the face and sweating like nothing else. Luke was 8, took one look at bob and said "Gee Bob, you look really hot and bothered" well did bob go off, started yelling at luke for being rude etc etc, Luke was upset and didnt know what he'd done wrong, I had to get in real fast and explain it doesnt mean the same thing here as in america and that luke wasnt being rude LOL We have had many a cultural issue over the years!!

Which reminds me, bob reckons its all americans, Im not sure and just curious as usual. When I was there every time I ate my dinner and bobs parents were around they would laugh and say the delightful "oh look how quaint, how she holds her knife and fork" (yeah I know what calling someone or something quaint means) I thought it was rude to comment so much but anyways................ in Australia we hold/use our fork like this

Bob uses his more like this and says all Americans use their forks like this hence his parents obsession with how I ate.

How do you use your fork?

Curious arent I????!!!!!! lol!

Being very American I do use the handle up, right handed American method. But oddly, when I am very tired and sitting at table will find myself using the fork left handed, handle under method. Just not sure if that says anything about me. Does it?

And we also use it in the left hand Gimpy ....unless you are a left hander and then it goes in the right I guess. I can never understand how Americans can eat like this. You must be chopping and changing hands all the time ......knife down...fork over ...fork down ...knife up etc etc LOL

I have always used the American way, but lately I find using the fork down in the left hand and knife in right is so much nicer... so I do both... got that from watching my Canadian friends... I remember the first time I served them breakfast and they stacked their eggs on top of their toast.. I thought that was really weird as I used my toast to dunk into the yolk... but you know I like their way better... My SIL was from England so she ate the Aussie way... and I found it fascinating to watch her eat...

We all have our odd ways Golo. I hate watching my husband . When I eat I like to keep all the different " bits " seperate . He is like a cement mixer ans mixes everything together into one pile . Also now he has started cutting every thing up into tiny pieces like a baby . WHAT is that all about ??????

I ate the American way until we moved to London...then I started doing it the Brit way (Aussie) because it was easier! Now I do both....get some looks sometimes lol.

If I'm eating something that requires being cut up with a knife I put the fork in my left hand and knife in right until it is all cut, then clean off the knife, Lay the knife across the top of my plate and switch the fork to the right and hold the fork to eat like Bob. I don't like using the fork in my left hand, even though I can with no trouble, just feels backward.

When I cook, I season... I taste and I serve... drives me nuts when DH adds Tabasco sauce to something to spice it up when it isn't a meal that should be... or someone who double salts...eeewww... I don't mind people adding pepper because I go light on that....

I eat like you Gimpy . Just don't like it all mixed together willy nilly like DH. Krafty we don't cut everything up first but cut and fork as we go. Use the knife to cut and also to place the food onto the back of the fork.
