There is one exception to the "arse" rule.

And that's when folks say that they "can't be arsed" to do something.

That doesn't translate into Americanglish properly, so that's still okay to do.

Saying you "can't be assed" to do something doesn't make any sense.

Which also makes it pretty goddam funny.

So I'm gonna start doing it.

And that means that you are on borrowed time if you are still "arsed" into doing things "ye olde" way.

Haha yah I'm giving you all Official Notice, the countdown clock on the last of the Arse Holdouts has begun.

"I can't be assed to switch to the new way."

"New way? What's this about a new way? There's been some very large talk behind my sleeping back, and no error."

"Don't worry, these are the blokes that still measure shite by the length of some King's foot."

Wait, I thought we used the Queen's foot now.

Isn't this why NASA slammed three Mars landers in a row into the surface of Mars?

Man... science, huh?

Well the wikipedia is saying that the average length of the foot of a "current european" is 9.4 inches *snicker*

Apparently they don't build 'em like they used to over there ahaha.

Which is probably why they started measuring everything in pesos and centons and whatever, to make it sound bigger.
