Attention, Yanks.
 

Please note.  These are bullocks.

Bullocks.  Mooo.

 

THESE are bollocks, except you can’t see them, because that would be naughty.

Bollocks.  Or ballocks, we use both pronunciations (- Flanders & Swann).

 

The only Englishman whom you should write as swearing, ‘Oh, bullocks’, is the duke of Wellington, when told by his Quartermaster that the ox-drawn supply waggons with the ammunition have lagged behind.

 

Thank you for attending to this.

Behan says "Ballocks"

...which makes it easier for us benighted Yanks to make the connection.

Do bullocks have bollocks? Or are they what you guys call "steers"?

{still giggling...}

Re: Behan says "Ballocks"

I, too, think this post lacks the picture of bullocks' bollocks, just to make things completely clear.

Have you been having problems with authors again?

Mum, why is that horse called Moby?

Apropos of nothing, you have reminded me of a friend of mine who used to have a job, ah, milking stallions. One particular stallion used to get a raging hard-on whenever he approached. He found it quite unnerving. He's a teacher now.

Did somebody really write 'Oh, bullocks!"? Wonderful!

Your friend or the stallion? :)

Re: Mum, why is that horse called Moby?

Definitely my friend!

(Given my current Sixth Form, I wonder if that means there's a vacancy milking stallions which I could apply for...)

Well said, so very well said. Nothing jars more than seeing bullocks instead of bollocks. It's just so wrong.
