Re: Britpick Resources

I have a question, since it was something that came to mind when I was thinking about a fic I might write.  Sorry if this is a bit vulgar (though I suppose that's subjective).

If something is very unpleasant/bad/etc. in North America we'll say it "sucks." Some people say "blows," but generally "suck" is used.  Is this used in the UK or their an equivalent phrase that's different?

Re: Britpick Resources

We use 'sucks', too....part of  the U.S international takeover!  Tee Hee.

Possibly  a politer version would be ' it's pants'.

Re: Britpick Resources

OK, thanks.  I was thinking and then all of a sudden went "Wait...do they even say that in the UK?" I couldn't think of anything that could take its place or why you wouldn't use it, but I wasn't sure.

Re: Britpick Resources

I think Ofcom's report on offensive language might be useful as a list of British swear words for Sherlock fanfic writers. Warning, offensive language
