  • "I'm hooked and I can't stop staring! Oh baybee, I wanna get witcha, and take yo' pitcha..."

  • Really, seanahan? I wonder why you think I wouldn't know about such things? I'd say probably human beings in general, including creatures called men, might be offended. That's my point. :-)

  • Reesetee, if you meant to say a girl was your girlfriend, but instead called her chubby, she would be offended, regardless of whether or not she was overweight or underweight. You see, these creatures called Women tend to be sensitive about such things.

  • Ah, frangarnes, I understand now. Don't apologize for your English, by any means. You should be credited for trying to learn the darn language. It's maddening. :-)

    And c_b, thanks ever so much for the earworm. ;-)

  • You misunderstood me. The reason to split up wasn't that my girlfriend was chubby, but say to her 'chubby' (even if she really is chubby!). She could get angry with me.

    Sorry if I'm unable to explain myself better. My English isn't very good, I know it.

  • *singing* "I like big butts and I cannot lie, You other brothers can't deny..."

    Uh-oh! earworm alert!

  • A reason to split up with your girlfriend? Not a word you'd want to call your girlfriend? Sounds like someone has a problem with people who are overweight. Tame maybe to you, but not necessarily to everyone else.

  • I'm interested, Reesetee, to know which comment you think was "not very nice". Everything seems pretty tame to me.

    October 23, 2007

  • Say it now! "I'm fat and I'm proud!" ;)

    October 23, 2007

  • Not very nice comments here.

    October 22, 2007

  • Yes, it could be a reason to split up! Here is the difference: chubby /'tʃʌbɪ/ vs chorba /'tʃɔ:bʌ/

  • This is a really ugly weird, maybe because is sounds to me a little bit like chubby, which is not a word you'd want to call your girlfriend.
