I'd disagree with that. It's just tired. Not inherently sexual. In fact, I would go as far as saying it is starting to fall into disuse and become archaic.

knackered can also apply to kicking or injuring some one in the balls

Why the hell would any self-respecting star be in central Auckland anyway? They'd be off in their mansion rather than in a CBD that urgently needs some urban renewal.

Ponsonby and Newmarket and where you should be to be seen.

At least after damn near two years we now have nice new footpaths on Queen St.

I also see they're disrupting traffic to build a city-Newmarket bus route. Estimated completion: 2010. Estimated Ian gradution: End 2009.

I think you're misinterpreting him. It means "tired", in that case from sex.

I mean, I've grown up around British people, I could get British citizenship (and will when I finally have the money to visit Europe), and know people who use the word. It doesn't have inherent sexual overtones. I most frequently hear it from older relatives when they get back from a run or other physically demanding activity, "I'm bloody knackered!"

Newmarket? Seemed like a bit of a hole to me when I was there in 2006.

like i said, i thought it meant tired after i was corrected, and that i'd misinterpreted him...until 10 minutes ago when i saw that site. i'm betting that some people have that connotation, and others don't. anyway, i don't use it. but i can see how it would be awkward to think of it that way and then hear your relatives say that!

that's the awkward turtle. it is used to denote awkwardness, usually as it is happening, by placing your hands in that position, palms up for extra awkwardness, and rotating your thumbs as a turtle might his legs if struggling to swim.

it has spawned an array of other awkward animal gestures that i find to be simultaneously annoying and amusing.
