    I know "shit" is in the dictionary. As well as "wox" with a definition saying it's "wax." The computer pulled that one on me, and it made me go, "WTF?"

    hahaha. These stories are quite funny. I'd probably wonder what the hell was going on if they pulled "wox" on me as well lol.

    People overreacting as usual. Bet he'd be shocked that the word Lesbian is actually derived from Lesbos.

    Funnily enough, in the Oxford dictionary (the big complete one online which you need a subscription for) it makes no mention of it being offensive and suggests it is just a colloquial abbreviation of lesbian.

    LOL, well I guess that's 1 way to put it. "gay greek island"... good stuff. But it was exactly that. Gay women/ poetry and stuff. Not too exciting.

    Do remember, it's pronounced Lez-boss.
