Thanks to General Boy, my new metrosensual best friend, I have now watched the entire series of BBC's "Coupling." (Oddly enough, the US version barely deviated from the British version, yet the show tanked in the States. If it had made it past three episodes, however, it would have had to digress majorly because no way would that stuff see the light of day on network TV.)
Due to cultural differences though, a few jokes are lost on me and require further clarification. I am calling for answers.
"Gusset, gusset, gusset!" Jeff
What is a gusset? I tried Googling it, but I still have no idea what it is. It seems to be Jeff's favorite word though, especially when his lady-friends don't speak English.
"It is the four pillars of the male heterosexual psyche. We like: naked women, stockings, lesbians, and Sean Connery best as James Bond, because that is what being a boy is." Steve
Steve: She just leans over, looks me in the eyes and says "I'm wearing stockings".
Steve: And she has never worn them before. Not once in the entire relationship. I BEGGED!
What are stockings? I think pantyhose when I hear stockings. However, the men repeatedly mention their attraction to stockings and I just don't get it.
"I guess I wasn't man enough for her." Patrick
How often do you check out each other at urinals? Is it just me, or is there a lot of urinal peeking on that show? As a non-urinal user, it was my understanding that there is a Urinal Code: you don't use the urinal next to a guy unless there is a "full house," you don't shake more than three times, and you don't check out the guy next to you. A survey of drunken coworkers confirmed this. Is it like that in other countries?
