In year 4 our class had a competition to see who could think of the most for homework. I won with 114 . Can't think of any right now though - typical.

Cack-handed, which is my favourite phrase at the moment.
Excuse me, I resemble that remark.

it could be worse - the French for a leftie translates as "awkward" and the latin as "sinister"...

I like it for the childish, tenuous faeces connection.

Took your time looking that up didn't you?
I knew what it meant hence my post about "resembling that remark" - I felt I had to follow up to show my disgruntlement as i was ignored :P

I believe that's only true when the term is used as an adjective.
