    Your version of Faggot would be the third I'd consider if meeting the word in a sentence (unless uttered by an American cop on TV).

    Faggots - we eat them and burn them, and yet still we feel that our civilisation is superior to the USA, where they would not dream of doing either...

    VICTORY!

    And yes, I have today made myself rather ill by eating a lot of chocolate. However it took much less chocolate to make me ill than it used to.

    On the other plus side, I lost 3 kgs over the time.

    Perhaps you should've had Faggots instead!
    Well done, by the way, I've never given up anything for Lent. I've just never wanted to!
