Could some fine person here tell me what that means. The only thing I can get from Google is that it's an Irish thing which I knew.

So, my line of logic went, Irish, beer, ask on B&V.

If I don't get an answer here, there is a Strange person I can ask later tonight.


Get over it already. It's dead.

Keith, I'm guessing that you're not Irish even though your name could be. If you pronounce this phrase with an Irish accent a dozen or so times, you should have the gist of it. Just so I don't spoil if for you, try saying it for yourself, and I'll list the translation a couple of page-downs below....




































Well, I'll be f'd. (Pat's profanity filter is getting rather sophisticated.)

The Irish pronounce it "Fooked"

LOL, you'd think in 38 years I would have heard this before.

I think I just found my new sig line.

Nah, my wife just spent 10 days in Ireland, living with an Irish family, and one of the things she thought was so funny was how everyone over there pronounced it "fecked" or "feckin'" or "feck".

I guess there could be different dialects maybe...
