Yes I'm wondering now why we use the same word for both in English. They do both carry rainwater I suppose so maybe that's it. Mind you it's a word used in printing books too I think.


Perhaps when Scotland gains its independence Google will support Scottish as a language too as I was genuinely puzzled by Richmond's post. The meaning wasn't too hard but I wondered what recreational chemicals were causing the typos.

When you think about it, the gutter that takes the run off from the road, and the gutter below a roof, is just the same thing but lower down.
Stand up, or give up.

A drunk was stumbling down the street with one foot on the curb and one foot in the gutter.

A cop pulled up and said, "I've got to take you in, pal. You're obviously drunk."

Our wasted friend asked, "Officer, are ye absolutely sure I'm drunk?"

"Yeah, buddy, I'm sure," said the cop. "Let's go."

Breathing a sigh of relief, the wino said, "Thank god, I thought I was a cripple."

Klondike..  ;D ;D ;D


I managed to get a lovely joint of beef in Sainsbury's yesterday... Beef seems to be on offer in most big supermarkets..
  I nearly bought a box of Christmas crackers but thought ‘Don’t do it Irene.. Step away .. far too early’..
Don't think of a caterpillar dying..Think of a butterfly living.
