Now when I read the word cute, I think of cats, spaniel dogs, bunny rabbits and guinea pigs ... I do not think of Politicians ... could that have been acute?U A page 72Nutt wrote:"I have comitted what you said to memory, Mr Trev."
Trev replies "Oh Brutha, an I'll bet you 'ave, at that..."
What does an Omnian prophet got to do with football? Especially one that someone like Trev has probably never heard of? Should that have been brother? 'Oh brother ...' sort of thing?
Just some observations that I thought were odd word choices that's all!
There are plenty of people who aren't even Christians who say 'oh Jesus!' as an expletive. I see nothing wrong with 'oh Brutha!'
And one of the dictionary definition of 'cute' is cunning - so that works in this context as well.
