    I know this Yank doesn't. Would any Brits care to define both of these phrases??

    Winding up - the act of taking the piss out of some to annoy them on purpose, for fun

    Taking the piss - mocking, pocking fun at, teasing.
    You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................

    I know, that is why I go months without signing in. It is what it is, and I normally wouldn't bitch, but I felt like a good bitch and reminiscing about the good ole days after discovering Darth was banned.

    ...fair enough.

    Fwiw, I thought Darth was alternatingly funny or not funny & offensive. But always interesting...

    Darth was a character, he probably put a fair bit of effort in to provide that character for our amusement. He also knew his shit. I seriously hope the moderators are actually aware of the members before reacting to individual posts. Yeah, I cringe at jokes about foetuses in blenders, but -- context people! Betorq, you would have loved this place a few years ago.

    Ah well, what to do...? I think if we continue to petition the mods, maybe they will reinstate him.

    Perhaps another thread ought to be specifically started for that purpose... "Petition to Reinstate Darth Friendly"

    Piss proud - being proud of something that one didn't actually accomplish - Physiological definition: when a full bladder puts pressure on nerves that stimulate pathways that lead to a male's erection

    Taking the piss out of someone - Everything you said. Deflating someone's ego.

    I read this online somewhere and it made a lot more sense.

    Thanks - sounds a lot like "busting (someone's) chops".
