Yes indeed. The famous board game
, even though it's for kids
, was not called "Buy all the properties so as to extort colossal rents"
BTW coming from a different part of the Anglosphere, it's strange to see "bathroom" used as an instance of plain English
, on any vessel which doesn't actually boast an actual bath.
It's even funnier (and arguably further still from plain English) to hear of Nth American kids
on a game
safari saying in hushed, horrified tones "those lions are going to the bathroom at each other"
What's wrong with good old "having a p*ssing contest"?
