It's Official: Thank God I Had My Fannypack

I was just watching I Love the 90s Part Deux on Vh1 and wished we could all be together to watch it.

"Never trust a big butt and a smile." Truuu!

Same here.

I thought maybe it was an unfortunate name for a "bum bag", those things you see the tourists with their cameras swinging from their necks wearing around their waist.

Ah, okay. We have "bumbags" here. People who do long distance walking have them.

But I'm still lost. Whats the correlation between watching tv and a bumbag?

The lack of an international form of English can be really annoying sometimes

The bumbag/fannypack was one of the 90s fads profiled on the 90s show I had been watching.

Aha! Thank you. I thought you ment you had tissues in your bag to cope with the crying induced by a movie on tv, hence the "Thank God I Had My Fannypack" .lol

And I thought I was doing so well to have worked out that VH1 was a tv station


lol

I'm so glad I've never used the word "fanny."

Yeah, in the UK it's bumbag, and 'fanny' means the same as in Australia. I remember my first night in the States (lived there for a few years when I was a kid), I was watching America's Funniest Home Videos. There was a shot of an old lady falling on her arse. The jingle with it went:

Gee my name is Granny and I've fallen on my fanny.


That was extremely traumatising for an 11 year old English kid, clueless about the transatlantic variations in the meaning of the word fanny!

I'm enjoying this I Love the 90s much better than the first one. The first series was a lot more irritating for some reason.

It always amusing me how some things dont translate well internationally. Usually its the other way around, usually its the USA people who are more conservative with their words.

But in this case, its the other way around. Fanny is a word not spoken in polite company here. It's no where near as bad as the C word but it's really not a word uttered by anyone other than dirty old men.

It's so weird to see the word flash across the thread list. lol.

So how does a song like the BeeGee's Fanny Be Tender (With My Love) go over in Australia and the UK?


Quote:
Ooh, be tender with my love;
You know how easy it is to break me.
Fanny, be tender with my love,
'Cause it's all that I've got
And my love won't forsake me.

LOL. I never noticed that. Fanny is a girls name too.

Given the BeeGees grew up in both England and Australia Im sure they knew what they were singing. LOL
