Fibbing Friday — Across the Pond

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Frank’s turn to host and here are his questions.

1. What’s the difference between “going on holiday” and “taking a vacation”?

A holiday lasts one to three days. A vacation lasts one to three weeks.

2. What’s the difference between a “rubbish bin” and a “trash can”?

A rubbish bin is where you store worthless stuff that you don’t want to throw away, whereas a trash can is where you put worthless stuff that you do want to throw away.

3. What’s the difference between the “boot” of a car and the “trunk” of a car?

You load boots and shoes into the car’s boot, but you load suitcases (aka luggage) into the car’s trunk.

4. What’s the difference between a “nappie” and a “diaper”?

A nappie is what you take when you’re tired. A diaper is what you wear when you’re incontinent.

5. What’s the difference between the “pavement” and a “sidewalk”?

Pavement is the surface material for a street. Sidewalk is a way of walking like a crab.

6. What’s the difference between “chips” and “French fries”?

Chips are small, flat, round pieces of plastic used for playing poker. French fries are people from France who have consumed excessive quantities of alcohol and are “fried.”

7. What’s the difference between the “bonnet” of a car and the “hood” of a car?

The bonnet is another name for the retractable top on a convertible. The hood is the part of a sweatshirt you wear over your head to keep your head warm and your hair from blowing around while driving in a convertible with the bonnet down.

8. What’s the difference between a “rubber” and an “eraser”?

A rubber is another name for a condom. An eraser is another name for the morning after pill when you forgot to wear a rubber.

9. What’s the difference between a “flannel” and a “washcloth”?

A flannel is a soft, warm shirt, often with a plaid-like design. A washcloth is what you use to wash your baby’s butt after he or she has had a messy diaper.

10. What’s the difference between a “pram” and a “stroller”?

A pram is a type of plumb jam. A stroller is what they call an elderly person who goes to a shopping mall before the stores open and who strolls around the mall for exercise.
