Such questions are silly. Until somebody decides they aren't and the word gets consigned to the ever increasing pile of racist terms and banned from polite conversation.

Used to have very oily skin when I was young, plagued with those horrible blackheads.  One tiny advantage of old ages my skin had now dried out, too much really, but no more blackheads.

Great word.  Every teen in Scotland had plooks. 😄

I didn't wash my dace in water when I was young. I used Clearasil Clensing Lotion on a cotton wool ball twice a day. I never had any skin trouble.

I've had more than one girlfriend who seemed to enjoy search and destroy missions on my back..Must admit, it's very relaxing to be 'groomed' in such a way..

When I was a child we'd all go down to the beach and
Dad would lay his head in Mum's lap and she squeeze
his plooks.

For some unknown reason I found that demonstration of love
and care quite repulsive.
