Banter

Started by: dustaf (inactive)

Always think about that word when I see the 'Dave' TV channel motto.

The home of witty banter.

Anyroad, I had me an google, as is my wont.

ban┬Ěter

/ˈbantər/



Noun

The playful and friendly exchange of teasing remarks.

Verb

Talk or exchange remarks in a good-humored teasing way: "the men bantered with the waitresses"; "a bantering tone".




I'll have that.

The brains at the UD have a similar idea:


banter

Supple term used to describe activities or chat that is playful, intelligent and original. Banter is something you either posses or lack, there is no middle ground. It is also something inherently English, stemming as it does from traditional hi-jinks and tomfoolery of British yesteryear.

"You, sir, are drunk"

"Maybe so but you are ugly and I will be sober in the morning"

"Good banter sir"



Supple?


Typing of 'Dave', that false bon homie with the audince on Top Gear irks me. (Not that I watch much Top Gear)

Is bant a Wiganism?

Run out of bant. Not much bant in it etc.

Thought of that when remembering Arkwright's offer to pamper Nurse Gladys.

"I'll pamper you 'til there's not a pamp left in you"

Very interesting, Jo Anne.

Often used by folk to describe air rifles etc. Which are mostly spring operated.

So you peeped.

I've also heard the term used in a ribald negative way to describe a weak sounding expulsion fo gas.

I remember saying years ago "there's more bant in a bottle of pop" meaning you have no get up and go, or you are a weakling.

Anyhap, back to the matter in hand.

This marvelous new thread of mine was inspired by a comment I made elsewhere.

I'm scared to look.

Which, coincidentally is what Mac's Doctor alays says to him when he 'presents'.


I do hope you can take it on the chin, Mac, dearie.
