"I quickly rubbished." by Reese. Quote of the Week!
Sounded fine for UK vernacular. Is "rubbish" not used as a verb in the US?
(BTW, it's Rhys ... Welsh spelling.)
Its not really used a noun in America either.
Rubbish! I use it all the time as a noun.
Rubbish bin or trash can?
“What a load of garbage!” or “That is absolute rubbish!”
Wasn’t it Churchill that said we are “Two nations divided by a common language.”
I spent a length of time in England in the mid-late 80’s sort of commuting between there and Germany and found it pretty easy to slip from one vernacular to another (middle class RAF officer Brit speak and middle class American Milspeak). However, when I opined that one female RAF officer had an “outstanding fanny”, which brought the conversation to a halt, my Brit friends quickly explained my error.
