Cultural dictionary  

I've often found myself frustrated when I open up a post and realise that I haven't got a frigging clue what is being discussed because it is about a TV programme or celebrity known only in their home country. I myself am often guilty of using references I could only really expect someone from England to understand... and thus in the interests of promoting cultural understanding I propose we keep a dictionary of such phenomena.

Basically anytime someone uses a reference in a post they believe people might not understand or misinterpret they can cross reference it to this thread. Then if someone uses it again, they too can cross reference it to this thread. Over time we'll hopefully build up an interesting mish-mash of cultural information about words, television and celebrities which might be worth a read in its own right.

Just a little bit of it can bring you up or down.Like the supper it is cooking in your hometown.it is chicken, it is eggs, it is in between your legs.it is walking on the moon, leaving your cocoon.
