Those helpful Sharks.....

....gave the Stormers a "beasting" not a "beating" according to RooiAdder. In point of fact they did neither, but just scraped a win at home.

 

But why a "beasting"? This is a term used by the Brit military for hardship designed to improve discipline and performance. Why would the Sharks not want to give the Stormers a simple beating and leave it at that? Why improve their performance? This from Oxford underlines the meaning of the term:

 

"Definition of beasting

noun

[mass noun] British informal
  • (especially in the armed forces) the process of subjecting a new recruit to harsh treatment in order to instil discipline. "

 

 

The answer is simple old RooiAdder got it wrong again....he thought a 'beasting" and a "beating" were pretty much the same thing.  Nothing funnier than a 50 year old lush trying to be hip and getting it wrong............wehe!

RooiAAS I know you're reading this and grinding your teeth. But I just want to clarify, what I give you on the Board every day is a "beating" not a "beasting".......LMAO.

Moffie, I see you didn't answer my very simple "yes" or "no" question.

 

Is that because you're a gutless coward or is it an admission that you shot your stupid mouth off too early again and you were pwned and beasted all over again?

RooiAAAS last time I answered one of your questions, you got yourself into this"beasting" mess. It was hilarious to read that you have some kind of blog where you have misused the word countless times.

 

But look,  stop squealing like a stuck pig and post what you want to post. Your need, for a question to be answered to kick start your rantings, is becoming a bore.
