Young people in the UK have many disarming phrases meant as put downs and to which there is no answer.
One favourite is "take the shame!" You acted like a numpty, a div, a tool are some of the kindest definitions of this phrase. Perhaps "what a trumpet", "you're a right muppet" or "whose working your strings" are also appropriate.
But, who, is pulling strings in the UK? Who had the bright idea of suggesting that, Susan Boyle, sings for that guy from Rome, when he pays a state visit to Scotland later in the year?
Yes, they will put Miss Boyle before a TV audience of millions world wide and another youtube video may go viral.
A viral video with a nasty virus playing a sit down role. The Scottish singer, a devoted Roman Catholic, will pay homage to the guy along with hundreds of thousands. She will probably sing a religious thing or two, well known by millions of Roman Catholics.
She probably will not sing, "I Dreamed a Dream", her signature song. Then that guy from Rome or his many Cardinals will not hear Miss Boyle tell them, "Shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame", the highlight of her song.
Not their strongpoint, "TAKING THE SHAME!"
