Crude, American humor tends to be rather irreverent. I thought D1N0's post was hilarious.
FTFY. Leave me out of your style of humor. :cP

That said, it seems we often have issues of understanding on this forum due to language issues. Can you imagine the furor that would occur if you read my terrible excuse for German?

If native English speakers are saying it... my apologies to D1N0, then.
Native English speakers under a certain age. D1NO even used the * - a clear reference to the 'My Dad' meme (which - though crude - was hilarious because almost all of it was true at its core).

I didn't get the allusion either. Popular culture and/or slang isn't universal, even in this age of borderless Internet.

I once made a remark in a post including the 'Where's the beef?' phrase. It also fell totally flat on many of the PF audience. It's hard sometimes to remember that we aren't all coming from a similar history or culture.

PS: asahi man, you are still very welcome here.

Kunzite Relax, it's just slang.
That is probably where you headed the wrong direction with an average age of almost 49 (like me) for Pentax users. ....

Slang or not, it's still crude and really not necessary (IMHO).

I would just say that we do have a lot of non-American people on the forum and people for whom English is not their first language and I can understand how this sort of humor could be taken as an attack on someone. If a joke needs an explanation to work, then it probably doesn't work on this audience.

back to the matter in hand, I still read it that they will produce 2 FF models, one pro and one consumer, at least that is my wish for next year.

I'm not a native english speaker, I'm Dutch. Sh*t "fill in whatever is applicable" says/say is a well known internet culture phenomenon (probably ever since sh*t my dad says which was ages ago). Enjoy (or not ) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shit+*+say

All well and good.

It is just understandable if some folks aren't familiar with it.

Can someone start a thread that's called "Shit Asahiman says on the dark site" ?
DN10, I have a question. How many times did you see this ''s...'' word used in this forum. In my years here, I remember seeing it just 1 time, excepting yours. And that time, the user got an admonishment from the moderators. Lucky you, nobody makes an observation to them about you.

But besides your explanation that is just slang, I know that normally, a man is adapting his behavior and language to the medium. Of course, not every man, but those who can hold a pleasant conversation, at least.

Hope that didn't offend anyone.
