    Foliage, giant pumpkins, bonfires, etc., take a photo that shows us what Autumn means to you.

    Thanks for the theme suggestion, orionid!

    So, this ‘Autumn’ theme, can there be green grass in the picture, or maybe some snow? What about beachballs or Christmas trees (they go up at WalMart in September, you know.) 💡

    Because this theme is just way too straight forward and has generated absolutely no controversy (nor comments) whatsoever. 🙁

    Just doing my part. 😆

    Controversy? You think we need some controversy?
    OK, then.

    Why is this called theme “Autumn”? I thought “Fall” was the preferred nomenclature in the USA.
    Why is this site now pandering to British English? Was the American Revolutionary War fought for nothing?
    Was Mel Gibson’s historically improbable movie all a sham?

    Answers! I demand answers!

    Seriously, though, I was a little surprised to see the theme called “Autumn” because I thought “Fall” was more widely used. Surprised, yet at the same time delighted. Our next step is to export a few more letter u’s over there.

    I thought “vacuum” was quite enough, thank youu. And that ‘re’ garbage, as in “We’re going to the theatre”–we’ll have none of that! And they’re fries, not chips. And we bum cigarettes, we don’t scab fags. Am I forgetting anything?

    That theatre/theater, metre/meter thing bugged me as a child. I kept spelling “quarter” as “quartre”. I hate to say this, but the American spelling is at least more consistent on this one.

    And don’t you mean “vacuuuum”?

    And on a similar note, is U-Man‘s handle a subtle way of showing his support for British-English spelling?

    I really want to know now what a faggot with gravy is… Leica? I always thought it was a cigarette, though why you’d want meat-flavored sauce on one escapes me.

    Yeah, well your “fanny packs” are pretty weird to us Brits.

    Damn. You beat me to it.

    First, let me say “Good work” with all the pointless “U”s. In next to no time you’ll be walking into a fish ‘n chip shop and ordering a battered sausage with mushy peas before going to the footy match. Cripes, we might even get you into cricket at this rate!
    Second, I have actually never had faggots in gravy. They are basically just meatballs, made IIRC with pork and pig’s innards. Wiki tells me they are Midlands thing, which would explain a lot. However, Wiki also tells me that in Yorkshire, where I’m from, we apparently call faggots “ducks”, which I have never heard of. In South Yorkshire, though, “duck” is commonly used in a friendly address (especially by older women to younger people), rather like “dude” is in the States. For example, at a fish ‘n chip shop: “Would you like some mushy peas with your battered sausage, duck?”.
    So maybe they are subtly calling everyone a faggot. Hmm….
    The term for a cigarette is “fag”. I am not sure of the origin of the derogatory epithet “fag”, other than that is not used so much in Britain.
    I wonder if it has anything to do with “fags” at British public schools (think posh private schools in the US). A fag was a younger pupil who did unpaid chores for senior pupils, such as cleaning shoes, ironing clothes, using his own arse-cheeks as a toast rack, and so on. You know, everyday stuff.[/quote]
