    Default Archaic phrases

    I wonder if posters would be interested in posting words and expressions that were once common but have fallen into disuse

    T H E .... F U Z Z


    Old dublin word for the cops.
    Eg.I got grabbed by the fuzz.

    It also meant pubic hair so many double entendres occurred.

    Only one thing matters: live a good, happy life. Do your heart's bidding, even when it leads you on paths that timid souls would avoid. Even when life is a torment, don't let it harden you.
