Ummmm...describe "cute", please. I'm having trouble visualising it!

At least I didn't say "fishy". "Cute" as in amusing in a sometimes nauseatingly sweet way. "Precious". I know I could have used better punctuation and grammar, but it was late, and, and, and....

Good gravy
Good meat,

The boys at my Dad's boarding school, near Rawalpindi, were probably treading on very dangerous ground with their favourite after-meal chant:

my belly be raised

Somehow I don't think that students currently attending that school would be permitted to utter that chant today.
