    Well I'm Irish...my family is Irish and I have to say in all my 40 years I've NEVER EVER heard that word spoken much less as an endearment. While the F word is an adjective to most of us, the C word is a vulgar, unspoken, fighting word.

    The men would kill someone to hear them call any woman in our family by that name.... and then us woman would get our turn.

    Default Objection BobC!

    Like Jayelles, I'm from Scotland, but I have an Irish background, and I can assure you I never heard the c word mentioned amongst any of our relations. btw I was in Ireland in the year 2000, and I visited North and South, and I never heard the c word mentioned once the whole time I was there, so I think you have some unusual Irish friends, Bob. Into the bargain, while growing up in Scotland, many of our neighbours were Irish, and I repeat, I never heard the c word mentiond as a child, or as an adult any time I was with these families.
    elle: The RST can't handle the truth!
    Just my opinion.

    OMG, I haven't laughed this hard at a forum thread in many years! I too am proud to be Irish and I've never heard the c-word used as a term of endearment in that or any other culture, young or old. Tricia, Chaucer has nothing on you! I agree, we should all send endearing letters to Ms. Hoffman.
