Since wench originally meant "girl or young woman" I move we should not use the word wench on females over 30 :evilgrin:

^^ Since 'flour' originally meant 'flower', I think we should not use the word to mean 'edible white stuff'.

My in-laws were offended by our wedding ceremony calling me a Wench. I told them that *I* wrote the damn ceremony :lol:

I say words like this a lot, and mostly with friends.

If I call you a name, I either really like you (a lot less likely) or really DON'T like you (a lot more likely).

That's just how I roll. I refuse to give words power over me.

Hmmm....

Speaking personally I prefer the term "Piratess"

But I'm not offended by the term wench.

I need to use two different wenches every time I change the mower over to the snowblower or vice versa. 5/16" and 1/2".

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
