Are there any Brits reading? Could you do me a favor and explain why "Minges Coliseum" is hilarious so I don't have to? Thnx!

Sweet Jeebus on a fuzzy waffle - that is hilar-fecking-arious.

BTW - does one find this sort of imagery at the entry to the Minges Coliseum?

It's your blog of course, Princess, but this could qualify for the label "bored/arty wire photographers".

Matty, right you are. Fixed!

In Scotland minging means "long past its best".
Routinely applied to rotten fruit, week old
underpants, and (though I hate to say it)
disparagingly to the entire female population
of whatever city you happen to have had a bad
night out in.

anonymous, you're kinda conflating "minge" (rhymes with "singe") and "minging" (rhymes with "singing"), but yes, very true.

minge = front fanny

From the UK Slang Dictionary: Minge: Noun. The female genitals. Derived from dialect, which ultimately may have its roots in the Romany, minj. [1900s]

I went to ECU and yes, it is Minges, but it is pronounced Mengeez. I know, I know, it's still funny.
