Pretty straight forward really. The poor bloody woman who gave birth to you....as for this rather heated debate about the spelling, whether it is mum or mom. Well I would say it does really matter but I feel like yank bashing today so I will point out an error in american english which is blaring example of either arrogance or stupidity.
The word Lieutenant is pronounced incorrectly by americans, it is a french word and to spell in phonetically in english one would write it as Leftenant.
So the yanks fail...sorry
Oh also mum has something to do with keeping your mouth shut about something...read examples
I love my mum but damn she is a bitchMum
's the words (the keeping your mouth shut part)
A word americans don't know how to spell
s use the phrase 'your mum' as an insult
me: fuck off
Townie: your mum
A term that equals mom in british.
Ron Weasley: But mum!
a word which dickhead americans can't spell, and claim we spell wrong - despite the fact that WE invented the language, and the idiots WE sent to america couldn't spell.
British Guy: Hey mum, I'm home.
American Tit: Hey mom I'm gay!
The British, Australian, New Zealand and South African equivalent to the American and Canadian Mom
And all this argument about the correct way to spell it is nonsense. Why would you bother fighting about the right way to spell Mum/Mom, cheque/check or fiord/fjord? It's neither here nor there. And certainly saying it was Mum first isn't going to bring about a nation-wide reform on it's spelling in America, now, is it?
"Sorry, can't come over, my Mum said 'no'."
"mums the word" "keeping mum"
1. A British form of the word 'mom'
2. Means to keep quiet (also British)
1. Did you call your mum yet?
2. Keep mum and we won't get in trouble.
