Bell-end


I'm off to bed and will be leaving The Prof in charge of the critters for a couple of days
I have only one thing of any note to share and that is
a conversation with a well spoken and prim colleague who rang me up early this morning.
The woman and I had a general and pleasant conversation which had almost finished
when she asked me if I could help her
" someone called me " bell end " this morning " she said
" really?" I said
" Yes, a mouldy old BELL-END..what IS .... a bell-end?

Bless!!!!

  1. I was enjoying the idea of 'the old bulldog beginning to stir' when you went to bed in the last post.

  2. 'A Belle-end'; one who surpasses all others in the beauty stakes.

    1. I so agree with you. What a awful thing to have said.
      What a mean person to have said that.

  4. Oh My! I had to Google that one. Here in the colonies, we'd say someone is a d*ck, or is being a d*ck or acted like a d*ck etc etc etc. Lately, the word's been associated a lot with Donald (t)Rump.

  5. Amongst other things, not so nice
    Bell End is a village in the English county of Worcestershire. It is situated approximately 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) south-east of Hagley on the A491, north of Bromsgrove and close to Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Halesowen. It lies in the local government district of Bromsgrove.

    1. Well I never, have lived in this area all my life and never heard of it!

    2. Having lived much of my life in that area, I remember Bell End fairly well. It's always on the way to somewhere else, a blink and you'll miss it sort of place.

  14. We say dickhead in the states. And often when it comes to politicians. :) I sort of like bellend and may use it since most folks I know have no idea what it means either. LOL

  15. I used to enjoy surprising my husband with a string of x rated words about nothing much lol
    It is more amusing / surprising when there is no particular reason to just blurt out M*er f*er or D* head ...

    Is this the post you are leaving us with until late on Christmas Day ?
    I am disappointed too.
    *I am saving Rachel from posting again (lol)

  17. I had to look that one up (thank you google!) Is an insult, really an insult, if the intended target does not know what it means?
    I have been called the translation of that on occasion, when I really deserved it. I am really trying to be nicer - very trying at times.

  19. I would rather assume that a bell-end refers to the end of a bell. A mouldy old bell-end would probably be found in a church, having been dinged only rarely. Bell-ends that are dinged regularly do not go mouldy. People read too much into innocent use of plain language. Happens to me all the time.

  20. I had to google it. What a truly offensive thing to say.

  21. I hope that if you did explain you did so in a quiet and respectful way (lying?).

  22. Lol!! A bell end isnt such a bad thing, really. I'm quite fond of them.

  23. I had never heard this phrase before today.

  24. New one to me. I thought about what might look what might resemble a bell, or the end of one. Maybe I am on the wrong track though. DH?

  26. Another innocent here, but I shan't bother Googling; I get the drift of previous posts, thanks. What on earth did you tell her? Did you just say, "It's not a nice thing to say" and leave it at that? Shocked of Cornwall!
