    Re: Psyche Me Out, Alan Webb!

    > tafnut, "very good" in malmoese roughly translates to "very good" in English.

    now is that 'sarcastic' English, or 'plainspeak' English?

        "Sarcastic," as defined by Websters, is what the mealymouthed call straight-shooters.

          ""Sarcastic," as defined by Websters, is what the mealymouthed call straight-shooters."

          hmmm, gotta sort this out

          mealymouthed means 'can't speak straightforwardly'

          so that means 'sarcastic' translates into 'not-straight-shooters'

          which is what it meant in the first place,

          so once again I have no idea what you're talking about.

            Doesn't suprise me. You probably don't do too well on logic tests? What you said is similar to saying: apples are red, therefore red things must be apples.

            The mealymouthed, who are by default, are not straight-shooters, perceive straight-shooters as being sarcastic because they are not like themselves.

              which begs (which means 'avoids', Mr. Language Person) the question, were you mealymouthed or sarcastic?
