Yes, doobie was always a bit of a wanky American high-school name, but then with the possible exception of the sublime Black Water and Takiing It to the Streets, the Doobies' mindless chugathon boogie numbers were always a bit wanky and American high school themselves.

That said, with the entry level drug of choice around our way being nasal passage-shredding sulphate, if I'd asked any of my contemporaries if they'd "care for a toke on my doob" when I was growing up, I'd have had my head stoved in.


Good news, Britishists, you pronounce it the way you (wrongly) pronounce "boogie."

Now, consult with John Lee Hooker and learn how to say that word properly.

You can tell how we brits pronounce words from their written versions?

You are a cunning linguist!

There's some bloke who didn't agree with mask wearing and would post about it on his FB page (someone absolutely nobody knows aside from his friends) and I don't know who was responsible for making it go viral, but he has died of Covid-19 and people are sharing this on t'internet and laughing about it. Laughing about this bloke dying, and sharing his FB posts, and nobody knows him, but they're having a laugh at him anyway.
I fucking swear to God.

I watched the shop owner itemise the bill today and noted for the first time that the biscuits I have been buying and enjoying every week or so from the shop near my work are ‘dog cookies.’

Do they say that on the package, or is that just what the shop owner thought they were?

It’s home made, wrapped in cling film.
I never noticed what it came up as on the cash register before.
No wonder they’re only 2 dollars!

Now I come to think of it, this totally explains why weeks ago I bought one and the lady asked me what kind of dog I had.
I told her I didn’t have one.
Austin is so dog crazy it didn’t surprise me to be asked by someone I had just bought a biscuit from, what kind of dog I had.

:D
