Well, it is Wednesday and time for yet another weird, wacky, or wonderful word to play with. Today’s word has two quite different meanings. One of which is to sell something that (in my opinion), you want to get shot of pretty quickly. Can you guess what the word is yet?….I will put you out of your misery then.
Oooh, this is a harsh kind of a word. It is spanking and smacking, bashing and beating, whacking and whipping the living daylights out of somebody.
Naughty school boys would often get on the wrong side of a strap or a slipper, or castigated with the cane! It is getting one’s arse tanned, or being given a damn good hiding (both of these expressions my nan was fond of)! It is more than just a clip or a clout, more like a larruping or a leathering, or maybe even a thumping or a thrashing!
Thankfully, this is not as popular as it once was!
