  • Another funny, but similar outdated term is ejaculated. As in to utter suddenly, as in surprise. So you could say that BS man ejaculated, and caused Schwartz to be incontinent!
    Your evening of swing has been cancelled.

        You are applying today's use of the word to Victorian language, and that is a common mistake. In Victorian "speak", the obvious intention is that he fled with haste, not that he wet himself.

        • I do realize that common speak in Victorian times is often quite different from todays vernacular Jeff. I also just realized that perhaps we've wet/dry trousers enough.

            They are only secondary or tertiary to those that did not know the meaning of the word as used in Victorian times, hence the obvious.

              You presume that people always use the correct word, (common contemporary usage/vernacular), each time they speak, and that's incorrect for any historical period.

                Maybe he wet himself as he fled. There you go. Kill two birds with one stone.

                • Sam Flynn went market
                  Joshua Rogan stayed home
                  Jeff Hamm had roast beef
                  c.d. had none
                  And Micheal W Richards went wee, wee, wee all the way home!
