    Act like a real wife and maybe he’ll stay home nights.

    Yes; yes, he is. And you should be glad of it, Donna. He’s not worth your time.

    This is likely what Pierre would do if he was married for real. Look how fast he dropped the nutcast Tina after he “scored”. Despite being crazy about her for months.

    “Douche Canoe”? That’s going into the vocabulary list for the week.

    I think Donna’s up the creek without a paddle.

    Free rein to go have a lil fun yourself, Donna. Unless you do care for Pierre. And then … well, this’ll be fun for us to watch.

    Never heard of “douche canoe.” When I was a kid, a cousin used to use “douche” to describe idiots, but I never heard anyone else use it. Maybe it was an idaho thing.
    I made up “chowderhuffer” for a book, because it sounds bad/funny but doesn’t actually mean anything, for those making dumb decisions in the Puket Sound area. (I had a mental picture of someone snorting clam chowder through a straw.) For example, they want gasoline and diesel, but they only allow small tankers, which have a much poorer safety record than the newer double-hulled supertankers. A small tanker goes aground/hits a rock and they have an ecological disaster. Double hull tanker goes aground/hits a rock and the main worry is which shipyard to fix it in.

    Maybe Donna’s heard a French phrase and has got it garbled> “Canoe” suggests “canard”,which literally means “duck” but can also be a “dirty trick” and by extention trickster, con-man, cheater. Or it could be “con” – not a nice word in French and pretty analagous to the English! “Douche” is “soaked” or “sodden”, so is Donna saying Pierre is a soggy c**t" – and if so, who taught her that phrase…

    And having said that… this is how Urban Dictionary defines the phrase “douche canoe”


    Someone who exceedes the limits of being a normal douche or douche bag.


    Not just your run of the mill douche. A total douche! This douche will kill you with his non stop douche baggery. Avoid the douche Canoe at all costs.

    And there is also a “double douche canoe”.


    Someone who is up shits creek with a turd for a paddle yet takes no responsibility for their situation and find the need to blame everyone else for their predicament.

    Damn. I’m British. My first thought was that it was garbled French picked up from Mona. Or Pierre.

    Talk about wanting to have it both ways.
