DonD BS: Australians, do you see the balloon? (35) RE: BS: Australians, do you see the balloon? 04 Jul 02


I'm puzzled -- in American English, 'ass' means both backside and fool, as well as a beast ofburden. In British English -- that is, does the Queen say 'arse' for 'bum' and 'ass' for 'fool', or does 'arse' cover both?

I ask because it jusr struck me that GUEST seems to be following Liz around and making a fool of himself and thus in the Western Hemisphere is Liz's ass. If there were an operation to reduce him/her, it would be worthy of the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
