Billingsgate may run the opposite of 'love your enemy.'
Now for the dove, I'd need a machine to translate for me.

'Geez, you kiss your mom with that mouth?'

Funny word, that.

~Karen said...

Is Actonbell referring to her Mom's comment? Then Billingsgate is either a fish market or a London wharf near Lower Thames Street.

BILLINGSGATE, n. A daft Brit on a Wilful Walk

(No, I have no idea what I am saying simply using a lot of Patrick O’Brian stuff!)

Actonbell reminded me of this converstaion from Analyze This. Just too funny!

Psychiater: No, I'm not, I'm just trying to understand, why do you have a girlfriend?
Vitti: I do things with her I can't do with my wife.
Psychiater: Why can't you do them with your wife?
Vitti: Hey, that's the mouth she kisses my kids goodnight with! What are you, crazy?

The Psychiater's last name is Sobel.
