Sadly i dont think, any definition in any dictionary around the world could explain the true meaning of the Word PLONKER......better than watching a classic episode of good old Fools and Horses.
On that I am in complete agreement.
To translate Plonker as Dick gives it a harshness that it doesn't have. It is a much softer more endearing insult!
But how do you explain that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwDBZuHw7l8
To be fair to dbmtb, i was thinking fools and horses, and not Dick, when i made the comment, but he pedalled backward very well, which was amusing too.
No malice was ment, AS LONG AS NO ONE DISS"s the LEGENDS, they are all there, and we have a lot to thank them for, and best we not forget it.
Somtimes I think the reverence is overdone.
Sure, respect is due, but often a little bit of irreverence, is, um, well, fun - remember that? Where would we be without a bit of irreverence? Practically all our comedy gold would be, well, um, not comedy gold.
And, come on, admit it, you did overreact a bit to dbmtb - I got what he was pointing out, but I think most of the harshness he got was mainly because people inferred more into what he'd written than was there.
