Chris,

Be very careful when referring to any man as a "punk."

Do you have any idea of the etymology and the connotation of the word "punk?"

Maybe you were raised in a very different envirnment from me. I was raised on the north side of Chicago in what most people would consider a tough neighborhood.

I a guy would ever refer to another as a "punk", even in jest, that guy had better be prepared to engage in some serious fisticuffs.

Alex - I assure you that 3c is not in my Chambers Dictionary - tweaking is one thing, that is quite another. Wendy

Sorry, Wendy, but BV's research nailed it.

3c is it.

That's why it was and is considered such a derogatory term.

BV, one need not be brave at all to call Rory such an insulting name from the anonymity of a keyboard.

I've never met the man personally, but several people have said he is quite a personable guy in private.

OK - Stroppy AND crestfallen, but before you get on your high horse too much you know full well that Chris was not using the term as per 3c. Who is being combative for the sake of it? How about a nice (competitive) game of chess by the lake instead? I'll let you win (the chess game, that is) if you say you accept my apology?

All right, Wendy, for the sake of world peace I'll reluctantly accept your apology. (I'm not quite sure for what.)

As for what Chris(and also BV) meant by the the term "punk", neither has made clear what is meant. I don't not know full well what was actually meant.

If Chris thinks that Rory behaved in the manner of a spoiled child or a miffed teenage girl he could say as much. He didn't.

Where I come from, also a rough neighborhood, punk was used as meaning "much less than a man" but without the homosexual connotation. You know, the kind of guy who would sucker-punch somebody, pick on the weak or bring a weapon to a fistfight. Now, however, that word is fully loaded like in 3c.
