    1. I sense a new trend in special forces composition…

      (As a bonus, our MILF could threaten to menstruate on the Islamic militants after capture, I guess.)

    1. I’m sorry, but I don’t get it. I am vaguely aware that Eve Longoria is a “Desperate Housewife”, but have never seen the show. Does “MILF” have some special significance – I mean aside from its being an acronym for Moro Islamic Liberation Front? Is that Longoria’s nickname on the show or something? Inquiring minds want to know.

    1. paco,
      its an online abbreviation for “mother i’d like to f…”
      You have obviously never visited an online porn site where the abbreviation is (I’m told) ubiquitous. I have not personally seen such things, of course. I was told by reliable sources.

    1. #7: Oh, I say! I’m not sure inquiring minds want to know that much. On the other hand, I’m spared any future embarrassment in showing my complete ignorance on the subject of sexually explicit acronyms (aside from the clod-footed ignorance I’ve displayed to the few thousand people who visit this site).

    1. #9 Extremely kind of you, Mr. Bingley. I hope it isn’t just paranoia, but I strongly suspect that Wronwright is generating these acronyms just to show me up.

      I did finally find out what “PIMF” means: Preview Is My Friend. Oddly, another meaning is Pair In Metallised Foil. For some reason, Madonna comes to mind, but I refuse to speculate further . . .

    1. No, it’s not paranoia; Wronwright does that to all of us. I think he’s out to get us.

    1. If only this thread had appeared some time ago.  Lacking paco’s courage, I turned instead to surfing the internet to find out what milf meant.  Needless to say, that’s a trip I don’t want to take again any time soon.  Or ever.

    1. Rebecca, I took that same trip.  I think it was the fault of Iowahawk that it became necessary.  That was another piece of information I found I could do without.

      This has nothing to do with that disgusting acronym, but I’ve been meaning to ask if anyone has seen Kyda Sullivan lately.  Well, have you?  Anyone?

      Is that what he claims he did? What a load! All he did was drop them off on my deck, knock on the door, and bolt. Those bastards have been eating all my chips and drinking all my homebrew ever since. Every time I try to get rid of them, they wander back.

      It wouldn’t be so bad except for the constant fatwa’ing. Gets on your nerves after a while.

      Saltydog.  You mean Kyda Sylvester?  I believe she was going on her relocation search to Prescott, St. George, and yikes, Las Cruces!

    1. #23 yojimbo, you’re not mistaken. It does stand for something very similar to that. Follow Tim’s link: the headline is a genuine news headline. Hence the mirth (once you’re in the know).

    1. #22, yojimbo,

      Thank you for the information on Kyda.  And thank you for correcting the embarrassing “Sullivan”.  I knew better, but then, I didn’t remember that she was going hunting either.  I think it was the fact that she mentioned Las Cruces that drove it out of my mind.  Yikes is right.

    1. Paco and Daddy Dave,

      the origin of MILF, I do believe, is actually from the movie American Pie.

      One of the characters, Stifler, had a sexy mom, in an over-the-hill sexpot kind of way, but still raunchy.  One of his friends has an affair with her.

      Hence, the term “Mom I’d Like to Fuck” (MILF) came into existence, and was later adopted by millions of porn websites, after doing the rounds of teenage boy pop culture for a few years.

      I still can’t keep a straight face when Anton Ines, newsreader on SBS TV news (Australia), introduces a story about the MILF, with such a deadpan voice. I bet he has to concentrate not to laugh…

    1. #30 and #32, thanks for the etymological information. my friend has clearly not watched enough trashy movies. I shall tell him to get off that computer and get down to the local cinema. But if the origin of the expression is really a hollywood movie, there has to be a plagiarism lawsuit in this.

    1. …oh yeah, richard mcenroe #30 already said about American Pie…

    1. #32, I have to try hard not to giggle whenever someone says “Anton Ines”.

      [for our US friends, ‘Ines’ is pronounced so it rhymes with a part of the male anatomy]

    1. You had me going, then I discovered it was the wrong MILF.  “BASTARDS”

      Posted by Howzat on 2006 06 01 at 03:16 AM • permalink

 

    1. Hahahahaha. I had no idea. I spent nearly a decade in the Philippines from the mid-80s and MILF is clearly etched in my mind as the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. I used to do business in southern towns where these guys had complete control. And I can assure you they are nothing like the MILF’s that I discovered when I did a google search to find out the f— everyone was going on about. Still laughing.

      I’ve sent this to several Filipino friends and they are wetting themselves. Expect the MILF (Moro…) to be undermined by people thinking of the second more interesting meaning for MILF (Mothers…). No Filipino will ever read their local press again without a smile (MILF must occur in headlines in the Philippines most weeks).

      Best post ever!
