Meaning of zebra crossing

zebra crossing means: n the black-and-white striped pathways drawn across roads where pedestrians have right of way and motorists have to stop if anyone is waiting by them. The phrase has been slightly usurped by the less exciting term “pedestrian crossing.” While this very concept of “it’s alright, on you go, the cars all have to stop” is dangerous enough, a great deal of them are positioned straight after roundabouts where motorists are least likely to be ready for them. I swear these things are part of some sort of population control policy. To make them marginally easier to see, some of them are marked with Belisha Beacons.

Meaning of moffie

moffie means: Originally a traditional Cape Malay male transvestite. The word is applied, by extension, to any gay man, a straight man suspected of unmanliness, ("Are you such a moffie you can't even kick a ball straight?") or even an insufficiently robust object. "(I don't like those moffie Chardonnays."). An update and slight correction was sent in by John: Your entry for Moffie is correct except the expression has been current since at least the early 70s. There is a close companion expression "Coffee Moffie" used to refer to a male airline ste ward. Whilst almost all airlines have their fair share of homosexual male staff, in the 80s and 90s South African Airways seemed to have a policy - the camper the better.

Meaning of Grog

Grog means: British naval seamen received a portion of liquor every day. Many sources suggest that in 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon ordered the rum to be diluted with water. Vernon's nickname was Old Grogram, and the beverage was given the name grog in disdain for Vernon's command decision. With that said, the word was used in the Caribbean at least as early as 1718. However, it is uncertain of the "grog" before 1740 was rum mixed with water or some other island concoction. What is known is that after Vernon started the practice, Rum mixed with water (and usually lemon or lime juice) was called grog. Some sources suggest that Edward Vernon was actually nick-named "Old Grog" after he instituted the policy of mixing the sailors rum.Water and rum mixed together was often called Grog. A dram (a small amount) of rum was often added to a sailor's water ration. A proper grog often included lime juice to help to stave off scurvy and a measure of cane sugar to help kill the bitterness of the water. The sailors rum ration was added to the water for a more important reason than just killing the taste of the water. The rum was added to water to prevent hoarding of the rum ration. By adding the rum to the water, the alcohol would be diluted and lessen the chance of the sailor becoming drunk. In addition, the rum rations was given to sailors to help them keep their spine during battle. A little rum helped to steady the nerves of the gun crews. Despite the rationing of rum, sailors would often find ways to have a stash of illegal alcohol aboard ship. It may have been smuggled liquors from a shore leave or made from an illegal still stashed somewhere on the ship. Alcohol always remained a problem aboard ship. The simplest of recipes would be Add approximately one ounce of fine rum (the rum used in the Royal Navy was an exceptional quality alcohol) to tin or glass of water (7 to 9 oz.) A more complex recipe would be 1 (oz) of Rum the juice of half a lime one or two teaspoons of cane sugar and fill the rest of your tin or mug with water. When it was made onboard ship it was usually made in a large barrel called the grog tub and then rationed out to the sailors. Grog gets its name from Old Grogram, the nick name of British Rear Admiral Edward Vernon who order his sailors rum ration diluted to prevent hoarding and drunkenness. Thanks to Don Rookaird and Alexander Owens for additions and corrections on the alcohol/grog sections of this page.
