Without wishing to cause any offence to the lovely ladies on here , I have always been intrigued as to why you would use the word " tits " in a derogatory sense.

Again without causing offence , "tits" are " nice " ( male ones excluded of course)

The etymology of tit is difficult to determine exactly (be careful when Googling "tit" + "slur" ;)), but one place believes it may derive from "twit", not a female breast.

Quote
  • As a name for a foolish person, used since the 19th century, tit may be the same word, or it may have evolved from twit.

Either way, it is specific to British English.

Quote

4. countable noun

If you call someone a tit, you are insulting them and saying that they are stupid.
[British, informal, rude, disapproval]

As a British English speaker I can recall calling someone a 'right tit' but never a 'left tit' :xnod:

Even as a overly political correct left leaning wanker I can agree with you that In that sense “tits” are nice, I might even go as far as to say they can be ace

The pun thread needs to be nurtured back to life.

 

PS I thought about wrangling a reference to suckling (in the maternal sense) but couldn't quite manage it .  :D

Well I tried to move the conversation over there but you need a respect for thread titles, a willingness to bother, and a desire to make your puns obvious and I lack those.

Ah you don’t know Legia. He didn’t say WHY he posted that article. Not really sure it was an endorsement. Maybe a pisstake? Van Badham is probably not his favourite person. :D
