But what for??

For kids to make them laugh or say something other than tomato, then the game is over. It's also a way of indirectly not answering questions which I'm guessing is the adult version.

it denotes a negative context.

I can't think of anything other than clingy. As in to be like a limpet.

Yes, exactly!!!! Good job. Some politicians say it when they feel reporters become too inquisitive. :):):)

Ok. I need to help you more extensively which I will do with great pleasure as usual. :):):)

I said that sticky is derived from a noun. Which nouns are available?

I know and I have wracked my brains for one but I can't think what it is :(

Don`t worry! I am coming to the complaint rescue and have a great pleasure in announcing that the Polish idiom translated as sticky is derived from the English word stick which is a noun! Namely what does it mean? :):):)

I truly admire your stubborness in guessing those crazy idioms. Like a Poless! :):):)

Not much idea with just one word. You can stir things up with a stick. We would say to stir the pot but pretty sure it's not that.

Since when did

Since a certain female authoress decided to picture her in that way! Simple! Kneel down before her choice. :):):)

Yes!!! Stick which means stick! Now, look for an adjective !!!

I don't know. Every stick has two ends is the same as saying there are 2 sides to a coin or 2 sides to every story.

I don't know. Every stick

I can`t bear this torment of yours any longer!!! :(:(:((:(:(:(:(:(

Here is the explanation: sticky comes from stick meaning kij - the adjective is kijowy which means chujowy. hahahaha

To say something to deliberately annoy them?

What is a joke??? That there is no other meaning of wind up???
Sorry, there is, check the Cambridge dicktionary. I wasn`t joking. :):):)

A wind-up is a joke or trick when someone deliberately tells you something untrue.
OP pawian 223 | 24,390
21 Mar 2024 #1,551
Yes, exactly!!!! :):):)

Now, were you aware of that meaning or you had to check it in a dicktionary?? I am curious as an English learner trying to look into the popularity of certain phrases.

Of course I was aware of the meaning! That's what I meant in post 1548, but I presumed you hadn't understood what I meant as you asked " What is a joke?" You could also say, " You're having me on". It means the same thing.

I was joking though I said I wasn`t. It is the screwing nature of Polish apes. We can`t stop screwing people in. Sorry.

" You're having me on"

Sorry, I only know I`ve had you by Ace Ventura who conned the petnapper.

A dance that women ask the men to do. I don't think that this is what you meant though.

Yes, ladies' choice (when women ask men to dance) aka Sadie Hawkins (though just for a dance not to get married).

There was a PRL series by that name as well, an anthology with a common theme (each episode was about a different woman but they all worked in the same place).

pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bia%C5%82e_tango

I thought it might be on youtube but no such luck....
