"trump" as the ultimate expletive

If the HAFian in charge of putting things under the News: near top right of main HAF pages is bereft of inspiration I have a suggestion.

Have you used trump an expletive today?

It's possible that in 5021 "trump" will be worst epithet, be it in glimmering rings around Jupiter, or in squalid squamps on Earth, but first we must use it as should be used, it has to start somewhere.  Obviously, if it's to happen at all.

Take my advice, don't listen to me.

Mothertrumpers have well and truly trumped trump up. The trumping trump is neverending.

I don't think that Mrumper Frumper deserves that much admiration.  :sulk:

A 'trump' is another word for a fart in the UK. So he was always seen as a blast of flatulence in the UK.

For me the ultimate expletive will always be Evan Evans.

My brother's a member of CAMRA in Swansea and I used pop over on a semi regular basis for beer fests and I saw first hand how much of a dangly bit the owner of the Evan Evans brewery was at a festival in Carmarthen (oh my, I managed to spell that right first time) and realised then why the whole group were constantly shouting them two words.
I like to pay my taxes.  With them I buy civilisation.
