    Use of the word BROAD

    by cowboy71 » Sat Jan 10, 2015 5:23 pm

    There has been several queries from n00bs, questioning the curious use of the term "BROAD" here, so Statsman has decided that a history lesson is in order.

    Broad is a term used broadly on the broad.

    Its use in modern history can be traced back to the dawn of the broads (well, November 2010 anyway!), when one of the original and best broads on the broads (deb!) used the term.

    viewtopic.php?f=7&t=792&p=21188&hilit=broad#p21188

    The man with the broadest head on the broads (KevinP) picked up on this amusing typographical anomaly, and the use has stuck through to the present day.

    Here endeth the lesson. Class dismissed!

    FOOTNOTE: The skipper himself has oft used the term in jest when posting announcements on the broads too!

    Mm what is so funny is we are booked at Marriott Hollywood beach resort and it mentions the Broadwalk ! Wonder if that is a typo.

    I think referring to woman as broads is wrong.

    But always refer to the ship as on broad. :cheers:

    Absolutely Tom! I would never use it normally, just felt that it fit with the jestful nature of the post (and I'm pretty sure the lovely deb would not take offence)

    The broadwalk on Hollywood Beach is no typo. It is called that locally.

    Realistically, the word must be used to be a part of our metal cult.

    When I was still on the fence about the cruise my friend (I think he's BloodyCanadian on here?) told me an anecdote about Joakim Broden from Sabaton finishing off one of their sets thusly: "Thank you everyone! Thank you boat!" rather than just calling the event "70k", because fuck those extra syllables. So locally myself and several of the others I know refer to the cruise as "the boat." On the forum though, yes, I use broad.

    But I would appreciate that none of you call me a broad, on broad. I appreciate those that have already said they don't :boobs:

    I don't use the term to address or refer to women generally but am curious what it is that's derogatory or disrespectful about it considering its origins is merely that women are typically and proportionally wider in the hips than their male counterparts.

    While we're at it, where does Dame come from and is thatconsidered in bad taste? If not, I may have to see if I can't help it mount a comeback.

    Promise, I won't actually call anybody a Comeback or try to mount them if I do, unless invited :?
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I always see "broad" as referencing a woman with large tits. As in, that's all that can be seen. That's all.

    And, Dame is actually the equivalent of "Sir". Like, Dame Judy Dench. Sir Patrick Stewart. That stuff. So Dame is actually quite the honorific. If they're offended by that. I don't think they know what it means.

    From my experience (several festivals over Europe but only one 70K so far) the broad ratio onbroad is much higher than in any other festival. You won't feel alone ;)
