Ed doesn’t want any deserts at the barbeque, declaring he is ‘stuffed’. It was way back in the 1970s that I silenced a London restaurant by declining desert with those words. It was gently explained to me that I was saying a bodily orifice was full of something other than food – I am still not entirely sure which orifice and what filling. Is this an Americanism that has become acceptable over here in the years since? I would like to know.
