    Hurra, I found it.....thank you, Ben.


    Taking the piss is a British term meaning to take liberties at the expense of others, or to be unreasonable. It is often used (or confused) with taking the piss out of which is an expression meaning to mock, tease, ridicule, or scoff.[1] It is also not to be confused with "taking a piss", which refers to the actual biological act of urinating. Taking the Mickey (Mickey Bliss, Cockney rhyming slang) or taking the Michael is another term for making fun of someone. These terms are most widely used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

    One of my favorite books is the American dictionary of slang, wherein the word that won the war occupies four pages of definitions.

    The term "taking the piss" is very apt here but obviously does not translate to American that well or the dictionary analysis,

    Nope. I do not spend enough time in Britain. Two people separated by a common language, but I found the nice definition above.

    I am surrounded in my life by persons "taking the piss," to be sure.

    The Germans have a term for this, interkulturelle Kompetenz, which is (inter cultural competency) or something like cross cultural skills, which in me are narrowly focused on RZM tags, "cup cakes," and foetid woolens in, and of, central Europe.

    I pretty much judge all my friends by their ability to say "taking the piss".

    Is it maybe time to draw a flowery curtain over this sorry business and move onwards now.
